Inspiring Stories From Solo Women Hikers ARound The UK
I step off the trail to chat to women who share their uplifting stories about solo hiking around the UK – everything from how they got started to what inspires them, their challenges and tips and recommendations for you.
Dip in for rucksackfuls of inspiration, tips and a great read!
I can’t wait for you to discover these amazing Women Afoot!
It goes without saying they’ll have you lacing up your boots before you get to the end of the feature! But what do they all have in common? Nothing more than a love for solo challenges and adventure in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK! They hike in national parks and backpack our stunning national trails and they make up their own adventures too, big and small. You might find them on long-distance hikes like Land’s End to John O’Groats or the UK’s ‘most difficult hike’ The Cape Wrath Trail, but they’re equally happy exploring their own doorsteps.
Challenge and adventure means different things to each of us, but what it always entails is getting out of our comforts zones. And whether that’s heading out for your first solo wild camp, your first long-distance walk or testing your navigation in a remote part of the country, these Women Afoot share their tips to get help you on your way.
