Instagram is fantastic. Every time you open the app, you’ll find inspiration, humor, something to think about, and various forms of eye candy. This isn’t a sales pitch for Instagram, but if you don’t have it on your phone (or iPad) already, now’s the time!
Here are a few outdoor accounts you can follow to get you started:
The Outbound @theoutbound
This San Francisco-based adventure website/gear shop provides a wealth of information for great outdoor destinations, including locations, photos, and hikers’ journals. Their Instagram feed is chock-full of beautiful hiking destinations.
Wilderness Culture @wilderness_culture
Wilderness Culture embodies what it means to be an adventurer. Their larger-than-life photography really shows off some of the amazing places you can hike, camp, or explore.
Discover Earth @discoverearth
While it’s not strictly an outdoor/adventure-themed account, Discover Earth has some of the most amazing shots of our world that we’ve seen anywhere. At any given moment, these folks will serve up the perfect photo to make you wonder at the beauty of our planet.
The Clymb @theclymb
This Portland gear shop and adventure story site shows us just how to merge beautiful imagery and outdoor advertising into one account. Their photography is so pretty that we don’t even mind the occasional sales nudge. (Man, you should see their marketing emails!)
Wilderness Collective @wilderness
Wilderness Collective is a new one for us as well, but they’ve got some stunning photos. These guided adventure trips really make us want to drop everything and get outside!
Go check them out!
Then make sure you follow us on Instagram @thrive_labs
