What we're about

Adventurous Women Exploring organizes and host adventures for women. We plan and host everything from day hikes and backpacking trips, to mountain biking, skiing and river floats. We're a drama free group who recognize the physical, mental and spiritual impact that venturing into the wild has on women. We believe in empowering women through outdoor adventure, exploration and connection. We encourage our members to act as stewards of the earth and practice Leave No Trace principles. AWE provides women of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, and beliefs a supportive environment to explore the Northwest.

No show policy: Scheduling meetups can be a lot of work. Please respect our organizers by updating your RSVP if you're not able to make it to an event. Our policy is that after your 3rd "no-show" you will be removed from the group.

Disclaimer: Both outdoor and indoor adventurous activities may be physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. All participants must understand and accept that there are inherent risks associated with these types of activities. Organizers and host are NOT professional guides and assume no responsibility for anyone attending an event. The group, group organizers, event organizers and event hosts will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any group event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused. Attending any event, regardless of your affiliation with the group or RSVP status, indicates you agree to these terms.

Participants in group events are reminded that outdoor activities frequently need specialized equipment (hiking boots, flotation devices, 10 essentials etc) and the group does not provide these. You agree that you will come prepared and completely self sufficient to all events unless otherwise arranged and approved by the event host. Participants are responsible for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and their guests, and the suitability of any equipment used.

***We take photos of our events! If you're uncomfortable with your photo being used on our page or elsewhere, simply let your host know that you prefer not to be photographed. We will always respect your privacy!

We are looking for Assistant and Event Organizers. For more information contact Kim!
