Walking with Royalty!
Here is a note from one of the founders of Adventure Queens –
“I first met Ultimate Navigation School on a weekend navigation in March. My foray into the world of navigation had been fairly basic until then so I was there to learn and feel more confident using a map and compass, rather than relying on my phone 24/7. I joined the intermediate group and had a brilliant two days learning about pacing, grid references, the 5 D’s, leading a group and loads more! The instructors are incredibly patient, adaptable to different levels, full of good banter, made sure we had fun and came armed with treats (this isn’t guaranteed but seems to be a theme, which I whole-heartedly endorse!).
After such a brilliant weekend in March, I reached out to Ultimate Navigation School again to see if they’d take out a group of Adventure Queens volunteers for a half day of navigation skills. We only had a morning rather than a full weekend but even in a short space of time, all of the attendees each got something out of the session and most importantly, had fun while learning.
I’d full recommend learning navigation skill with the Ultimate Navigation School. And best of all, they’re a volunteer-run charity with all profits going back to Mend Our Mountains, Fix The Fells, the John Muir Trust and the Mountain Bothies Association.”

About The Adventure Queens – Women’s Adventure Group
Do you remember the Black-Eyed-Peas before Fergie was in it? No. We’re not surprised. Neither do we. Adventure Queens has a similar story, when it begun as a (black-eyed) pea of an idea back in 2014 by adventurer and mischief maker, Anna McNuff. At first it was the gathering of a few women for wild camping trips, and a series of interviews with brave ladies who had taken a leap into the unknown with their first big adventure.
Fast forward to summer 2017, and tribe builder extraordinaire Emma Frampton, aka Framps, came on board. With her love of bringing people together, marketing know-how and event organising – things went next level. The Adventure Queens community was born and has blossomed into the beautiful beast we know it to be today. So, returning to the Black Eyed Peas analogy; Framps = Fergie. Get it? Got it? Good.
McNuff and Framps now run Adventure Queens together – offering regular tips and advice to a rapidly growing community of female adventure enthusiasts. Advice is delivered through bi-monthly emails, a Facebook group and relaxed, social wild camping events. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, we don’t obsess about kit and we certainly think that you can EVER pack enough chocolate for a night out in the wild.
