Women's Walking & Adventure Groups

International Women's Day is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate than by highlighting some women's only activity groups that promote outdoor adventures and physical activity.

These groups have created a supportive and encouraging community for women of all backgrounds to come together and experience the great outdoors and form new friendships. Check out six of our favourite women's adventure groups to get involved with this year.

Outdoor Adventure Girls

Outdoor Adventure Girls are all about empowering women to explore the outdoors and connect with one another in order to make new friends and have a group of like-minded women to spend time with.

The group organizes plenty of outdoor activities to get involved in, including hiking, skiing, and wild swimming, and provides a space for women to share their experiences with one another.

The Adventure Girls Club

Another great group is The Adventure Girls Club, which is a community of women who are passionate about outdoor adventures and exploring new places.

This group offers a range of activities, such as hiking and wild swimming. They also provide a space for women to share their experiences and in their own words, offer "a space for women to build confidence, gain experience, get inspiration and find a community in the outdoors".

The Wanderlust Women

The Wanderlust Women is a community for Muslim women who are passionate about exploring new places and want to gain confidence exploring the British countryside.

Whilst mainly based around hiking, the group has even led expeditions abroad and mix up their usual activities with things like paddle boarding, wild swimming and even mountain biking.

For those who enjoy being beside the seaside (though not just in the summer), the UK & Ireland based Salty Sea Sisters is a fantastic group that promotes the joys of wild swimming and sea-based activities, though they also enjoy a good hike. This group seeks to connect adventurous women, mountains and sea.

For women of colour, Black Girls Hike provides a safe and inclusive space for black women to explore the outdoors, reconnect with nature and challenge the status quo.

Centred around hiking (although they also offer kayaking and select other water activites), BGH provides a supportive community for black women who are passionate about outdoor adventures and encourage more women of colour to join them outdoors.

Wonderful Wild Women

Based in the Lake District, Wonderful Wild Women is an inclusive group that aims to inspire women of all ages, experience and ability levels to get active outdoors.

They organize a range of activities, from hiking and open water swimming to indoor climbing, book clubs and coffee mornings. With a particular focus on mental wellbeing, it's an excellent group to get involved with if you're local to the area.

In conclusion, these women's only activity groups are a fantastic way to celebrate International Women's Day and promote the joys of outdoor adventures and physical activity. They provide a supportive and inclusive space for women of all backgrounds to come together and connect with nature.
