Escape. Adventure. Exploration. We all crave the new and the novel, it’s the antidote. Now, more than ever, when the wonders of the natural world sit virtually within our lounge rooms, we crave authenticity. Real immersion, true wonder, a challenge worth writing home about.
We Are Explorers is a movement. We celebrate the new counter-culture: the wackos who cross deserts looking only for themselves; the rat-race escape artists, with their middle fingers raised to the 9 to 5; and the everyday explorers, searching out new experiences to turn into memories.
We’ve got a taste of the power and excitement of the outdoors and we want to spread it far and wide.
Here’s how we’re gonna do it:
For many people, discovering the outdoors is an awakening. We Are Explorers is an inclusive community, built on supporting and fuelling each other’s stoke. Whilst we give our readers the credit to understand more complicated ideas and shit puns, we’ll say it in layman’s terms, no need to get nerdy.
We go on the adventures. Our contributor network is an incredible crew who scour the planet for the the freshest new locales. This also extends to the gear we use and the brands we partner with, if we wouldn’t trust it in the bush, you won’t see it on our site.
More people are heading into the wild than ever before, and that’s not gonna stop if we just shut up shop tomorrow. We Are Explorers is committed to inspiring the new wave of adventurers to care for their wild places and helping them to minimise their impact. We acknowledge that this land on which we tread, whilst beautiful and revered by us, has even deeper layers of significance for its Traditional Owners and we pay our respects.
Some say that it’s not the destination, it’s the journey; so why not have a bit of fun while you’re at it?! We Are Explorers is built by a community of frothers who know the outdoors is a whopping great playground. We love all kinds of outdoor shenanigans: from rafting to riding, snorkelling to skiing, we want to get amongst it, traverse it and get on top of it.
We’re inspired by you: by every adventurer challenging no-one but themselves; by the dirtbags living out of vans; the amateur botanists and the camp chefs; the outdoor educators and those willing to learn. Most of all, we’re all asking the same burning question…
