We all have a story!

Unlikely Hikers is telling a different outdoors story than what we generally see portrayed by brands and outdoor culture. We elevate those who are new to outdoor adventure, those who don’t fit the “type” and anyone largely left out of the outdoors cultural narrative. This includes people of color, people of size, folks with disabilities, trans and queer people of all genders, Indigenous folks and beyond! We also want to hear your stories about mental health, chronic illness and politics in relation to the outdoors.

ANYONE with a unique story is encouraged to submit!


If you have a specific photo you want me to use, email it along with location to Photo requirements: face or profile visible, alone unless feature includes other person, engaged in outdoor activity (doesn’t have to be hiking). Send largest format! Meaning, when it gives you the option of sending a smaller file, pick the largest.
