Adventure Queens is not-for-profit women’s adventure community – set up by me and one of my besties, with the aim of delicately smashing down the barriers that prevent women from heading off on adventures. We provide practical information, tips and advice on all things wild camping and the great outdoors. Little by little, bit by bit, Adventure Queens is helping women from the UK and beyond have the confidence to get out there and get WILD.
Join thousands of other Adventure Queens already getting wild by signing up here.
“No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way.”
