We like to keep our social media feeds filled with things that we love, especially outdoor & hiking inspiration.
Sitting with a hot cup of coffee in the morning, checking out shots of majestic peaks & beautiful trails, keeps us inspired. With the endless stream of doom & gloom news & keyboard warriors on the rise, it’s never been more important for us to use social media in a positive way, connecting with like-minded people who share our passion for the great outdoors.
Here you’ll discover the accounts that make us want to pull our hiking boots on every time we see a post from them on Insta.

Outdoor & Hiking Inspiration
We are passionate about sharing the incredible effects spending time outdoors can have, not just on our physical but our mental health too.
This scientific report on nature.com shows that spending at least 120 minutes a week in nature is associated with good health & wellbeing.
It’s not just this report & us that advocate this though, loads of people are & we’re delighted to be sharing with you some of our favs…
A U.S.-based, member-owned co-op since 1938, REI shares content from its followers worldwide who provide tons of outdoor adventure & hiking inspiration.
We especially love how they don’t always share the most ‘polished’ shots & adore their slogan ‘a life outdoors is a life well lived.’
Below – our feature with REI ‘We can honestly say that we have never returned from an adventure & said to ourselves “You know what, I wish I never did that!” at Snowdonia National Park, Wales.
Our Instagram pal for quite some time now, we love this lady. A mountain leader, rock climbing instructor trainee & Mum of three fearless little ones – her Insta accounts are filled with hiking inspiration.
We adore that her kids often hike with her, showing that adventure really is for everyone & are also super excited to be joining her on her guided Welsh 3k Split Challenge in June.
Adventure travel blogger Lauren empowers black women through travel & outdoor recreation & we love following her adventures.
A steward for diversity in outdoor recreation, we think the way that Lauren helps others to embrace nature & connect with the natural world is awesome.
Inspired by nature, guided by adventure & designed by us – via our organic clothing brand Instagram account, we share lots of outdoor inspiration, including hiking.
Our love of nature is what inspired us to launch Nature Threads & we plant a tree for every item purchased.
Browse our store for our nature, adventure & hiking-inspired designs & follow us on Instagram (especially stories) to check out where we are hiking & adventuring. You can also follow our hashtag #vibewild – just remember to use it in your posts so we can see your nature-filled views too.
A photographer & filmmaker based in North Devon, Simon’s adventure shots are stunning.
His work showcases nature in its raw & natural beauty & that’s what we love about following him.
Sharing #sunshinehappiness & lots of outdoor & hiking inspiration, we love Iona’s positivity & cheer.
Iona’s mission is to show, that no matter how busy life gets, adventure & the outdoors can still be part of every day – something we which we most definitely agree.
& finally, us…
For those of you who haven’ met us before, we are Kelly & Adam, a couple of wild souls who live alternatively, amidst nature – meaning we spend a lot of time outdoors.
Hiking is one of our fav things to do & share with our readers & followers.
We hope you enjoy following the accounts we’ve recommended as much as we do. If you have any accounts that you love to follow, please let us know who they are in the comments at the end of this post.
