Re: SEVEN SISTERS EASTER HIKEI had the best time with the best people and the best weather, exploring the best section of the ‘South Downs Way’. Kate Capelli knows what she is doing and I would follow her anywhere. The general vibe was inclusive and warm and friendly, you do not need to be super fit to take part.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy 3 activities with AITW, 2 of which have been overseas trips! "Adventures" does not even begin to describe the experiences I had on both of my trips with this group. My first trip with AITW was in October/November 2022, and I still have fond memories and friendships that were formed, sharing laughter, conquering challenges, and taking in the beautiful scenery of South Africa. Hiking, yoga, camping, bouldering, and wine tasting were all part of the itinerary, but what wasn't planned was just the awe and feeling I was left with when the trip was over. I had so much fun that I booked another overseas trip in March 2024 to Lapland. I got to try snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, a traditional Finnish sauna, and ice dipping. We even got to stay in a cozy cabin where we shared delicious meals, took turns sledding, had a private sauna, and even laughed our way into playing in the snow between sauna breaks. We had 2 wonderful Finnish guides leading us into the beautiful Lapland wilderness, and we got to have lunch at our very own woman-made ice table/bar. Our last night was quite magical, as we got to see the Northern lights for the 2nd time on the trip and were mesmorised by its glow. It was an empowering trip, and Kate takes thoughtful consideration in planning and organising events that promote community support. I can't wait to join another adventure!

I can’t recommend Adventuress in the Wild highly enough after an epic week exploring the magical scenery of the Finnish Lapland.We were very lucky to have Kate with us, and I must say I couldn’t possibly think of a better professional travel companion.We also had qualified wilderness guides with us, and again, they were really professional and friendly, and they were adapting to our needs at all times.The accommodation had great views and was really pretty, it also had a fireplace and traditional Finnish sauna, and getting up in the mornings in such a setting was quite a thing.Spent our days hiking in the wilderness, snow shoeing, trying nordic backcountry ski, ice dipping and having yummy home made meals. We also managed to see the northern lights for two nights and had lots of fun as strangers to start with but as friends by the end of the trip.A really empowering experience and I have already booked to go again next year.

Truely, an amazing trip with a bunch of lovely ladies and two aspiring female wilderness guides. A week packed with fun activities, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, hike to the fell for aurora, yoga, sauna/ice dip, laughter, banter, a perfect traditional log cabin in the magical Lapland landscape. My 1st all female group trip and definitely not my last. Experiences are shared, fond memories to look back on and friendships formed. LOVED IT, AITW/Sidetracked thank you!

Kate is incredible! She has a great ethos and works incredibly hard teaming up with group's lead/run by women and making sure everyone is ok. Lapland adventure, was the second overseas trip with Adventuresses and it was phenomenal. The group was hilarious/encouraging and the guides (Sirpa and Lotta), made the trip so special for everyone.

Still buzzing after a truly wonderful trip to Northern Finland with Kate and Adventuress in the Wild. From start to finish, Kate was really responsive and set the tone for an encouraging and fun space to try new things, take on challenging situations, and have a lot of laughs with a great group of women. Kate provided us with an exceptionally curated week, filled with snow shoe hiking, cross country skiing, ice dipping and even seeing the northern lights in our PJs!Would absolutely recommend AITW to anyone after an adventure!

I’ve just come back from an absolutely fantastic winter skills weekend up in the snowy Scottish highlands with Adventuress in the wild.It was a perfect weekend from the outset!Kate, the founder of adventuress in the wild and our mountain leader, Charlie , immediately put you at ease going through the itinerary for the weekend.On the Saturday Charlie introduced us to the lovely Scottish winter and what it had to offer. We learnt how to make wise decisions, use crampons, use ice axes and generally have lots of fun safely in the snow!On the Sunday we put all of the skills we had learnt the day before to good use as we hiked up a snowy mountain…and oh boy…the views were unreal!We were very very lucky with the weather and I felt I was living a dream. The memories I have made from the weekend will last a lifetime. My only regret is that it didn’t last longer as I was definitely not ready to come home!Thank you to Kate, Charlie, Gaby and Jean for making the trip so memorable. It won’t be the last trip I take with Adventuress in the wild!

I have just finished the 4 week bouldering course with Kate and it was so helpful in getting me into bouldering. She really eases you into it and the course is layed out really well. Kate is an amazing instructor as she takes the time to learn about you and doesnt just coach you on the physical side but the mental side too which for me was the main obstacle for me progressing. By the time I had my 2nd session with her I was a lot less shakey and from the very first session I was able to complete climbs. She pushes you outside your comfort zone yet not so much that it puts you off bouldering completely. In such a small amount of time Ive seen so much progress in my bouldering and having all the techniques she has taught me under my belt I now feel confident enough to enter a bouldering gym on my own.

I recently completed the 4-week bouldering beginners course. It was a great way to learn all the basic techniques and lingo. I feel more confident going bouldering by myself or joining social climbs now. Kate is a great instructor and made the sessions fun. I would definitely recommend it if you are new to or returning to bouldering!

I took Kate's beginner level 4 week long course and I cant recommend it highly enough. Kate covers everything from climbing lingo to techniques that are invaluable to climbing efficiently. She is encouraging and patient and you get to meet and climb with other amazing women!

Had a great time during the adventuress weekend on the Jurassic coast with Kate and Lisa. Great organisation, communication, and felt really well looked after. They managed to cater to all experience levels, and just create good vibes all around. A brilliant way to meet new adventure pals!

I had the most amazing week of my life on an expedition to the Pyrenees with Adventuress in the Wild and 360 Expeditions. I had never travelled solo before and was so nervous to go on an expedition with a group of people I’d never met. Adventuress couldn’t have been better, Kate made sure everyone was happy throughout the trip. She took the time to speak with everyone on the trip and answered any concerns we had. She kept us all up to date in the WhatsApp chat and put a packing list in the chat each day to help us know what to pack for the days activities.The group were amazing, everyone was so lovely and we all really bonded over the week. It was a week filled with smiles and laughter, we all supported and cheered each other on as we tried new and challenging things outwith our comfort zones. I absolutely cannot wait to book more activities with adventuress and genuinely recommend them to everyone!

I attended the course "Confidence Outdoors" and I enjoyed a lot. Kate is creating a very comfortable atmosphere and she is providing a complete course both, for beginners and more advance hikers. Key information provided and also, detailed replies to all questions. Now I feel I have all the important tools to go ahead in my future hikes. I would highly recommend this course.

Highly Recommend!I wanted to make a positive change and to go out and meet new people with similar interests and to build my confidence and self-esteem. I’d always loved walking and hiking but never felt I knew enough to do it on my own (or even if it was something you could do solo!) Then I came across Adventuress in the Wild. Kate’s Confidence Outdoors course was exactly what I was looking for.The course included subjects like: planning your own hike and creating your own route; keeping safe and how to deal with emergencies; choosing kit and equipment; multi-day camping and backpacking and then the option of going on a hike and meeting all the people on the course in the final week.I was very nervous to go on my own but I didn’t need to be; I was instantly put at ease. Kate is very friendly and welcoming and all the ladies attending were great. It was a really lovely day and Kate was a brilliant guide.I’d put planning solo hikes off, but now armed with my new knowledge and confidence, I’m looking forward getting out there.Kate, thank you. I also can’t wait to go on more of your hikes soon.

Kate is a fantastic guide and leader. I feel inspired and motivated to undertake more treks, which as an inexperienced woman who wants to get more outdoorsy feels so empowering. However, my favourite part is the adventuress community - I have done both the compass navigation and confidence outdoors courses, and the community that Kate has an integral role in developing of Adventuresses feels like a truly welcoming, supportive environment. I’ve already booked onto more adventuress walks - if you’re not sure, just sign up!

I've been thinking about joining this group for so long and I'm so glad I finally did! So nice to get out of London with some likeminded, friendly people. Kate is a great guide, very knowledgeable and always making sure everyone feels welcome. I also like that there are a lot of options, from day hikes to overseas trips to bouldering. Very highly recommended!

I’ve had such a brilliant time on my days with the adventuress gang! I did a couple of hikes in January and the confidence outdoors course in March. Kate is very experienced and knowledgeable, and creates a really relaxed and friendly environment. It’s a lovely way to meet like-minded people whilst exploring some beautiful places and building confidence to go it alone at some point. Highly recommend!

Such a great community to be a part of! I'm new to town, so I was nervous to start coming out, but Kate and the girls made me feel welcome right away. I now attend the hikes and bouldering and beer sessions regularly. The group that turns up is always a mix of new and familiar faces, and everyone receives that same warm welcome. Getting outside is medicine for me. Getting outside with other women is even more so. For any women looking to get into nature more and meet other women who like doing the same, I can't recommend this group enough!

I had a fantastic time hiking in Epping Forest with such lovely friendly people. Kate is a brilliant guide and is so welcoming - I felt very welcome attending on my own. Such a great way of getting out into the countryside and escaping London! Highly recommended.

Kate is a great guide and she's managed to create an amazing community of women around her. The hikes she organizes are not only a way of exploring London and its surroundings, but also to connect to other people. 10/10 would recommend

Such a vibe! I was pretty stoked when I first found Adventuresses and even more so now that I have attended a few events. Kate is a great guide, always full of fun facts about nature and making sure everyone feels safe and welcome. What I love most though is the community, a bunch of cool chicks you get to hike/climb and have a drink with. Thanks for creating this, you'll be seeing my face a lot :)P.S. make sure to join one of the abroad adventures, it was truly an experience of a lifetime 😍

I've joined several adventures with Adventuress in the Wild, and I can confidently say that they are life changing experiences. As someone who moved to the UK, they gave me the opportunity to explore the outdoors around London and meet new people in a safe, friendly environment.Kate is a very experienced and organised guide, and she has created a platform that empowers women in many ways. I couldn't recommend them more.
