Phoebe Smith

Adventurer Phoebe Smith likes to sleep wild—from caves to mountain tops, disused farmsteads, and under giant boulders—if it's in a strange or extreme place she wants to take her sleeping bag and experience a wild night out. She has seen her love of the wilderness take her on solo adventures around the world—from sleeping at Everest Base Camp, to portaledging in trees in the Bavarian Alps, spending the night on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and bedding down inside glaciers in Svalbard—the last stop before the North Pole. She is an award-winning travel writer, photographer, presenter, and broadcaster, specializing in adventure, wildlife conservation, and the outdoors, and is the host of the monthly Wander Woman Podcast. She regularly writes for The Guardian, The Telegraph, and The Times (of London) and is a correspondent for BBC From Our Own Correspondent. She is also Sleep Storyteller-in-Residence at Calm where her stories have been listened to over 15 million times and been narrated by Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, and Jerome Flynn, to name a few. To date, she is the author of 10 books.
