Yes! Women Want Adventure cater for all fitness and experience levels.  We respect your concerns and help you overcome them and realise you can complete an outdoor adventure you didn’t think possible. At Women Want Adventure our mission is to empower women in the outdoors. We help you develop skills and confidence to push through barriers of "I can't" or "I'm not good enough" and help you realise you can build your fitness and experience levels along the way. Please refer to our adventure grading guide to get an indication of what trip best suits your current fitness levels.

We have many women who book individually and others who like to book with a friend. Attending individually is a great way to make new friends and become part of our supportive outdoor community. 

Most of our hiking trips are maximum numbers of 10-15. We often hold camping trips and special events with larger sizes of 20-25 women. We like to keep out group sizes small for overnight hikes and some of our more ‘challenging’ trips for safety.

The minimum age to join a Women Want Adventure trip or workshop individually is 18 years. Our trips are mainly tailored for women over 23 years of age. 

Gear requirements vary with each trip. There will be specific packing lists for overnight trips and guides for day hikes and workshops. Please refer to your trip bookings page and confirmation email to review your packing list. Our friendly team will always answer any questions or concerns you may have. Don't hesitate to ask us. 

Women Want Adventure trips go ahead in all types of weather, except extreme weather and electrical storms. Our Adventure Leaders review the weather conditions prior to commencing a trip and will notify the group if the trip needs to be cancelled or rescheduled. Please always prepare for wet weather by packing a wet weather jacket and lining your pack with a waterproof lining.  

If you are ill on the trip please notify your Leader immediately. Your Leader will assess you and make arrangements to cater for your needs. If you are sick before an event and need to cancel, we require a doctor’s certificate for any refund. 

Please refer to our cancellation policy. You must notify your Leader immediately as we may be waiting for you on the day to leave on a hike or begin a workshop.
