Welcome to Backcountry Women!

Backcountry Women was founded in 2017 with the vision of connecting like-minded people seeking community and adventure. Today, Backcountry Women has blossomed into a strong community of outdoors enthusiasts across Manitoba.

Not only does Backcountry Women aim to provide unique, quality outdoor experiences, we also have a mandate to unite, educate, and empower through a variety of workshops and resources.

Backcountry Women believes in a judgment free space for a diverse group of women and marginalized genders to encourage and build each other up through the power of the great outdoors.

We offer a variety of events throughout every season in a positive welcoming space for both members and non-members to encourage continual growth, learning, and connection. We make spending time outside easier, so pack your bag and leave the organizing to us!

In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live, work, and play on the ancestral lands of the Ininiw, Anishinaabe, and Dakota Nations, and the homeland of the Metis Nation. Our organization, Backcountry Women, is based on Treaty No. 1 Territory, and we appreciate that our events take place on Treaty No 1., No. 2., and No. 3. Territories.
