Our Story

We’re here to share the best human-powered adventures on earth!

10Adventures enables people to live exciting, adventurous lives. We aim to inspire our users to explore the outdoors with curated “best-of” lists for the top hiking, biking, skiing and snowshoeing trails in the most beautiful places on earth.

We’ve replaced the traditional guidebook, providing clear, concise route descriptions, digital maps, a standardized difficulty rating system, and all sorts of our favourite hints and tips for everything from trip planning to adventure living on our blog.

We also partner with reputable tour companies we love, allowing users to book outdoor trips directly on our website.

Our History – How we started

We launched 10Hikes.com in the summer of 2016. As outdoor adventurers ourselves, we knew first-hand there was a need for quality hiking route descriptions. Put simply: too many people were still using printed hiking guides. We decided people needed an easy way to find the best trails and give them high quality information on these trails. We wanted to make it easy for people to have a great day in the mountains

We initially soft-launched 10Hikes.com in July 2016, with four regions around the Canadian Rockies. That summer we also added Yosemite, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, The Tetons, Jasper and Whistler. Interest in the site was growing rapidly, thanks to media interest as well as great feedback from our users.

We decided that for 2017, it was time to expand the regions we offered, increasing the regions we cover in the US, the UK and Europe. This meant it was time to get down and dirty, spending months finding the best contributors around the world. Many of our contributors are local guides, with others being local hiking enthusiasts and travel writers. Over the summer and autumn of 2017, we increased to 40+ regions spread over Europe and North America.

Not only did 2017 see us grow the content on our website, we also grew our audience, peaking at over 75,000 unique users using 10Hikes.com in August 2017.

What’s Next – Enabling people to live incredible, outdoor lives!

2018 will see even more growth for us. We are rebranding and relaunching 10Adventures.com in spring, enabling us to share the best human-powered adventures around the world, not just the best hikes.

We had always planned on adding more activities beyond hiking, as activities like backpacking, bike riding, XC skiing, ski touring and snowshoeing all suffer from the same lack of dynamic, user-focused information that hiking does.

A major part of our relaunch is to make it easier for our users to plan and book their holidays through us. We receive a lot of requests from regular visitors on our site to help with their holidays, either guiding their group or recommending a tour provider. We are responding to our users needs by partnering with great outdoor tour companies to offer their tours directly on 10Adventures.com. We will help our users have a great vacation with a quality tour company while allowing them to support our site.

As 10Adventures.com Founder, Richard Campbell, says “We have just gotten started. We’re here to continue to share the best human-powered adventures on Earth. Whether you want to do them yourself or join a tour, we’re here to help.”
