Before I started my own travel blog I was inspired by cool photos and motivating stories written by some of the best adventurous travelers.
These are my favorite adventure travel blogs of 2018. If you don’t know them, check them out and enjoy this selection.
WHAT METRICS DO I USE FOR THIS LIST?
I’ve used my personal criteria. To create such a list, most people use Alexa Score, Domain Authority, Klout Score and monthly number of visits. However, we know that the most visited travel blog isn’t necessarily the best one. Even the DA, Some people are SEO geniuses and can get a lot of backlinks in a short period of time. They’ll have a high Domain Authority, but this doesn’t always represent the quality of their work.
This list is based on high-quality, well-written articles, informative posts, awesome pictures, nice entertainment and, above all, a lot of amazing adventures around the world.
IMPORTANT: I usually update this list every year depending on what’s new, and also to provide an opportunity for new blogs that are rapidly growing and that deserve to be known. If your blog was on the list but it’s not anymore, I’m sorry. I still love your work but have just updated the list with new projects.
