Wilderness Weekends Talk
She may be editor of a travel magazine but Phoebe Smith is adamant that you don't need to go far to have an adventure. So if you think the wild places only lurk in the distant corners of the globe then this is the talk for you. Here she reveals some of the best places to find wilderness and unlocks the secrets to Britain's most rugged corners. From humorous stories of her quest to seek them out to practical advice and hard won gear knowledge she will give you the helping hand needed to find your inner adventurer...
Travel editor, writer and author Phoebe Smith has seen her love of dramatic landscapes and wild places take her on adventures all around the world – from wild camping on the Scottish islands, to meeting sea gypsies in Burma and watching the Northern Lights from a heated wigwam above the Arctic Circle. She is editor of Wanderlust, the UK's best adventure travel magazine (Consumer Magazine of the Year 2013, PPA, Independent Publisher's Award) and author of several books including Extreme Sleeps: Adventures of a Wild Camper and Wilderness Weekends: Wild Adventures in Britain's Rugged Corners. She is as passionate about the outdoors as she is about travel and has written about both extensively in a range of magazines and newspapers in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. In addition to writing Phoebe has appeared on radio and TV talking wild camping, travel and women in the outdoors.
