All-Women Backpacking Adventures

 

Hike Wild on The Weekend! Picture this: You walk into the woods alone, then walk out again a few days later with a group of fast friends. Nothing builds camaraderie faster than first struggling, then succeeding together. Are you ready to achieve something bigger than yourself, strengthening old friendships and forging new ones in the process? Are you ready to challenge yourself physically and mentally? Are you ready to finally find the tribe of women you’ve been searching for your entire life?

 

Because we’re ready to help you achieve all that and more. We provide all of the supplies, gear, food, and backpacking know-how. All you need to do is show up, throw your (provided) backpack on, and start walking. You’ll be surprised how therapeutic a challenging hike in the woods can be with an awesome group of wild ladies by your side.  

 

There are limited spots available for these weekends, so make sure to join the family before we’re full!
