A weekly dose of female-powered adventure for your inbox.

Established in 2017, Intrepid Magazine began as the answer to one simple question: where are all the women in adventure? It has grown into a platform for the unfiltered voices of adventurous women and a springboard for anyone trying to progress within the adventure space.

Where are all the women in adventure? They’re here.

What is Intrepid Magazine?

This is a magazine about adventurers who happen to be female. We're bored of being stereotyped and of people saying how hard it is for women to do things - things many of us are already doing just fine (and have been for years). It’s not this girl can, it’s this girl does.

So we’re being the change we want to see. Intrepid Magazine is about sharing these voices direct, cutting out the middle man. We want to be positive, provide role models and help others up. This shouldn’t be radical or innovative, but apparently it is. 🤷

Intrepid Magazine is committed to spreading these stories as far and wide as we can. All articles are free to access, read and forward to friends.

🌎 Who are Team Intrepid?

We’re an adventurous bunch, connected by wanting to support women in adventure. Occasionally we do things together, like go camping on Dartmoor and get very wet…

The wet Day 2 of the Intrepid camping trip in June 2019. Yes, June.

If you’ve ever thought “I wish I knew people I could go on crazy adventures with” then this might just be the place for you :)

✍️ Contributors

We are currently in a state of pause, since we ran out of budget for the magazine. However, if you would still like to contribute (perhaps you have a new book coming out, want to build your portfolio of articles or promote a group) then do get in touch. We’ll see what we can do to help.

As for what we want, this magazine focuses on adventure stories and practical advice of interest to highly adventurous women. Some great examples include:
