United States Photo + Video + Film Hiking Galleries
by Katie Scott Aiton Mar 7, 2016

EACH WEEK WE CHOOSE OUR favorite images from readers, fans, and travelers, who tag their photos with #travelstoke and post them on our Instagram account. These pictures provide a daily dose of incentive, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways.

Here are this week’s editors’ picks of people finding some serious #travelstoke.

1. Marsha and friends in Australia.

3. Carlotta Maltese, Old Town Square, Prague.

4. Ryan Jones, Fredvang, Lofoten, Norway.

“When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.” – John Muir Stepped out of the house for a bit with @georgemullinix and drove up the road to see if we could see any stars. Found a spot near the Fredvang bridges and shot until the wind and snow picked up — I think we did OK. 😁 Also, if you’re wondering if the really bright thing is the North Star, it most certainly is. #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #resourcetravel #adventure #nature #livefolk #lifeofadventure #beautiful #astrophotography #stars #night #liveauthentic #pursuepretty #grammasters3 #outdoors #getoutside #lofoten #fredvang #norway #mountains #ItsAmazingOutThere #winter #visitnorway #mittnorge

9. Eena Makinen, Ylläs, Finland.

Our last “normal” day before heading into the wilderness for the next 4 days. Sledge is packed and I’m pretty sure it weights more than a car.. I think it’s a rock, paper, scissors in the morning who starts the hike with it. Thanks for today @paadar_images and his friend in a photo.
