Who We Are

The Outdoor Journal is an international outdoor sports and adventure travel magazine, with true stories from adventurers and travelers all over the world. It is a website, with news from unreported regions and stories not told. It is videos, of adventures, and expeditions to places that still have room for first descents and ascents. It is events, bringing together communities of enthusiasts and believers. It is soon a reviews platform, enabling travelers to make better decisions about their next adventure.

Our mission is to provide readers, without compromise, the highest quality multimedia content from the world of outdoor sports, fitness, alternative pursuits, travel, nature and wilderness.

Building a career with us will mean working hard to achieve this mission. We have a talented and diverse team that genuinely believe in the product and company.
