SWISS MOUNTAIN GIRLS
Hi! You love being in the mountains? We do, too!
We are a volunteer hiking community of swiss mountain girls that aim to connect, empower and inspire:
To connect women in real life for outdoor hikes and other adventures – we post collective hikes and have a community on Facebook!
To empower others through sharing knowledge and showing inspiring female outdoor enthusiasts.
To inspire with beautiful pictures of Swiss-based photographers – no matter if professional or not.
We provide an inspirational platform that will help you plan your next hike and to enjoy to the fullest what the mountains have to offer.
On our Instagram account you will find impressive photographs of women who live or are based in Switzerland. They inspire us to get outside and to push our boundaries again and again. It does not matter how many followers you have – if the pictures that makes our jaws drop, it gets posted on our account.
Hikes over likes! #swissmountaingirls

Our story – how it all started
Connect – Empower – Inspire
Everything started when Julia (the founder) was hearing the same sentences such as “I would love to hike more but my friends are not into it” or “I don’t know how to get started or where to go” over and over again. Meet Swiss Mountain Girls! The idea is to connect hiking women from all parts of Switzerland and thus making it easier to go to the mountains. We share our expertise for equipment, hiking preparation and organize dates for upcoming hikes and events. And lastly we will inflame your longing for the mountains by sharing amazing alpine pictures from our Swiss users. For more information click on the buttons below.
