Welcome Wildlings

Ladies, we are so excited you are here.

Are you ready to book your next adventure? We are ready to take you hiking, kayaking, or camping in the Midwest. We do the planning and provide all the gear. You show up ready to get your Adventure On!

What is a Wildling?

Put simply, a Wildling is someone who loves hanging out in nature and isn’t afraid to have a little adventure.

Our community is full of Wildlings, and our goal is to bring more of them with us on our journeys.

Upcoming Adventures

Hike & Forest
Bathing

Dates: November 5 
Time: 9am-Noon CST

Get your WILD ON.

Join us, along with Kathleen Aharoni, The Human Ecologist, for a day of Forest Bathing, where wild is the connected, grounded, sensual, alive, peace-filled norm of nature’s will. Our playground will be the sights, scents, colors, textures, and sounds of nature’s summer playground at The Little Calumet River Trail/Bailly Homestead in the Indian Dunes National Park.

You don’t have to remove your clothes and you will get wet only if it rains.

Come and immerse yourself in the beauty of the forest.

Join us at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center to purchase our park passes. Then we will relocate to the beautiful Little Calumet River Trail.

About Us

Back to Wild Adventures is an outdoor company focused on empowering women in the outdoors to bring that confidence back to their everyday lives and relationships.

Outdoor activities are healing, inspiring, and connecting; they don’t have to be overwhelming. We don’t want anything to keep you from (re)claiming your ‘wild.’ So, Back to Wild Adventures provides the gear and guidance you need to hit the trail or to enjoy a camping weekend. 

We provide both shared and custom hiking and camping adventures.

Our shared experiences include Hiking and Yoga, Hiking and Watercolor Painting, Hike and Wine, Forest Bathing, Hiking and Meditation, Family Hike and Scavenger Hunt, Joyful Movement, and Hiking and Photography. One of our most popular shared experiences is Ladies Hike Club which is the last Sunday of the month. The theme changes month to month. Ladies Hike Club is open to all women, those who identify as a woman, and non-binary folx.

We are inclusive of all body shapes, races, sexual orientations, gender identification, and experience levels.  

EveryBODY is welcome on the trails.
