Welcome to Outdoor Adventure Girls. We are an outdoor community providing safe and inclusive environments for women to reconnect with nature and the outdoors, through our local meetups, weekend getaways and training days.

Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive environment for women to feel confident outdoors, connect with other women and to challenge the lack of representation of women in the male-dominated space.

How did it all start?

The group started in early 2021 when the founder Sophie was at home wanting to go on a hike, but not knowing who to call on. Despite having friends at the end of her phone, none of them were that interested in going out on a cold January morning to hike 7 miles up to Ivinghoe Beacon. So she put a call out and asked if anyone wanted to meet up, and to her surprise four ladies messaged back and they met the next day. 

She then did the same thing a month later, and then again, and again and every time more and more women came forward wanting to meet up, get outdoors and make new friends.

What’s next?

18 months later and we have over 10,000+ incredible women in our main Facebook group with another 11 regional groups and 32 regional moderators, across the country, aimed at creating a safe spaces for women to meet others locally. During this time we have hosted over 134+ meet ups across the country. 

Then as most of you know, we hosted our first ever BIG WEEKEND in November in Stratford Upon Avon, where 44+ women attended. We went paddleboarding, connected with each other, enjoyed a 5km hike and indulged in a Sunday roast.  And since then we have hosted weekend getaways in the Peak District (twice) and Snowdonia and we have lots more planned for 2022 including weekends in the Lake District, Cornwall, South Downs and more.

We are excited to be bringing you along for the ride with us.

Love Sophie and the OAG team xxx
