For those of you looking for travel inspiration (and who isn’t?), these websites are guaranteed to sate cravings for adventure. That’s why Culture Trip brings you the most unique platforms showcasing the best and most beautiful destinations, from cosmopolitan gems to the most striking natural spots.
As the name suggests, Sidetracked is a site designed to distract you from anything else you might have been doing.Sidetracked acts like a journal and focuses on showcasing long-form, personal stories from contributors who have undertaken outdoor expeditions across the globe. Alongside the rich and evocative articles, the site marries striking visuals with practical advice, interviews and product reviews. Perfect if you’re thinking of becoming a full-time nomad and live the life of an adventurer.

The Travelling Light

Founded by Australian-born Katie Mcknoulty, The Travelling Light sheds light on the nooks and crannies you may not necessarily know about when visiting a new city. Covering the most popular spots across the globe, from New York and Bali to Portland and Paris, the site covers places to eat, drink and things to do. The posts are short and concise, accompanied by beautiful photographs.

Fathom Away

Fathom Away is known a community-based travel website. Their biggest section is ‘Postcards’, where travelers are encouraged to capture, write, and send their experiences abroad, which makes Fathom Away an incredibly useful website for travel.

The Voyageur

As the new kid on the block, The Voyageur does not have a vast amount of content just yet, the imagery is impeccable and really thought-provoking. Images captured are both ominous and uplifting, creating an urge to leave immediately in search of all destinations covered.

Jungles In Paris


Described as ‘cool as s**t armchair travel’, Jungles In Paris documents nature in its element through the lens of the camera. From mountains to seas, deserts to city sidewalks, Jungles in Paris captures Nature’s best side in both image and film.  

West America

West America fulfills your innermost ‘ride or die’ fantasies. Aimed at the fearless, free-spirited traveler, this website documents motorbike diaries and even includes a thorough guide to choosing the perfect motorcycle for your journey. Think dirt roads, open nature and absolute solitude in the form of personal stories and bikers’ travel experiences.

Never get tired of these dudes. Chilling on the altiplano. #film #bolivia
