Women Who Explore was started by two sisters (Jenny and Lindsay), with an idea to build a community of women who love to get outdoors, explore and empower one another. We believe that women should support one another in their goals and ambitions and that we, as women can do and be anything we want. We encourage women to believe in THEMSELVES and EACH OTHER. Women Who Explore isn’t just a website or a blog or an Instagram account, it is a place to be inspired, share stories and meet with like minded women. We are so happy to have you be a part of this community and YOU inspire us to be better every single day.
