An Introduction

Women in Adventure is an independent research-based project focused on empowering women through the sharing of information, inspiration and advice.


Women in Adventure is directly driven by what you tell us; you have the power to set the agenda! This project aims to represent a view that is not just based on personal experience, but the experiences of all. We are a collective voice championing women in the outdoors.

The 2016 Survey looked at what drives and inspires women in adventure, alongside identifying any barriers or issues that make it more difficult for women to participate.

The 2017 Survey focuses on mental wellbeing. Instinctively we know being outside is good for our soul – it makes us feel alive. However, there is a lack of accessible information showing how and to what extent it impacts our lives. Aside from proving there is a positive association between the outdoors and mental wellbeing, we would like this project to empower women and raise awareness of an often under-discussed topic.

The 2017 survey is now closed for analysis. For more information and the latest updates on the survey, please join our network. In the meantime, if you have any personal experiences, advice or inspiration you would like to share we would love to hear from you.
