Do you want to try out hiking but have never known how, or where or who with? Are you afraid to try hiking because it might be too difficult, or you might not be fit enough, or you might slow others down? Or has it been many years since you have been hiking, and its been on your list for a while to do, but you have never gotten around to it? Do you wonder what to wear, or what shoes work best?
Then come along to a free hike! I’m Richelle, and I’ve created Escaping Your Comfort Zone as a community that connects plus size women in order to create amazing adventures together. This group is not about weightloss. It is about enjoying our world, and inspiring each other to be the best version of ourselves.
Join a group of friendly, body positive, plus size women. Women like you, who are stepping out of their comfort zone, and having fun at the same time.
71kms in 4 days hiking with stunning views of the famous New Zealand Malborough Sounds around every corner you turn, the Queen Charlotte Track is the perfect track for multi-day hike newbies.
The trails are non-technical, and all you need to carry is a small daypack and nights are in comfy hotels.
And the best bit, you can meet all the girls on your trip in person, or online before your trip!

I’m Richelle Olsen. I’m an Aussie 30-something, I’m plus sized, and I’ve had an adventure or two in my life!
But I’m just an everyday woman, I’m not overly fit, but I love the outdoors, and I want to inspire and support other plus sized girls to experience what I have, without limits. You don’t need to be fit, you don’t need to “look the part”, it doesn’t matter what size you are, all you need is a sense of adventure, and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone.
I believe strong women are the ones building each other up, not tearing each other down, so I’m creating a community where you can meet women like you. Women who understand the challenges you face. Women who can inspire you, and women who you can inspire. All over the world. I’d love for you to join me!
