Welcome! I’m Bex Band.
Author, founder of Love Her Wild and lover of all things adventure and conservation….
My life now might be full of exciting adventures and expeditions, but it wasn’t always this way. I had an un-outdoorsy upbringing with a lot of struggles. School was riddled with bullying and undiagnosed dyslexia, so I grew up massively lacking in confidence. That all changed in my 20s when, on a whim, I went on my first big adventure hiking 1000km the length of Israel. I’ve since kayaked the width of the UK against plastic pollution and kick-scooted (yep!) the length of the USA. Now a mum, I look for ways to adventure as a family (my third book, Family Adventures, will be published by Bloomsbury spring 2024).
Noticing a lack of women accessing the outdoors, I founded the non-profit Love Her Wild – now one of the largest outdoor communities in the world with over 50,000 members. I’ve organised adventures worldwide, including the End2End relay where 700 women carried a baton for 74 days the length of the UK.

My blog has received over 2 million readers. I’ve been named one of the UK’s 30 Most Inspirational Entrepreneurs and won multiple awards including the Next Generation Award and the title ‘Legacy Maker’ on the San Miguel Alternative Rich List. I was also interviewed by Clare Balding for Radio 4 Ramblings!
