Hi, Traveller My Account

Women Want Adventure empower, inspire and connect women through outdoor adventure. We create day, multi-day and weekends to get women outside hiking, kayaking, camping and more. Trips allow women to try something new, push personal boundaries and make lasting friendships with like-minded women.

 

COMMUNITY MEET UP’S

Community is important to us. Connecting women in a safe and supportive environment where all women feel valued and welcomed is at the core of what we do.

Meet Up’s give women the chance to get involved with Women Want Adventure for the first time. Walks are easy and no payment is required. Meet Ups break down intimidation barriers so women can take the first step to try something new, make a friend and feel a sense of belonging to community.

AGES

All Women Want Adventure trips and Meet Up’s are for women over 18 years.
