About Adventures NW

Rooted in Cascadia, Adventures NW  has been the region’s leading source of outdoors information – and inspiration – since 2006. Hiking, climbing, running, cycling, paddling, sailing, surfing, skiing, boarding, ‘shoeing: it’s all here.

World-class stories and images. Local knowledge. It’s a winning combination.

At Adventures NW, we live to connect you to the wonderful world around us by giving you the information you need to get out and play! But we don’t stop there. Our secret mission is to inspire you with tales of derring-do and the spirit of adventure (still alive and well, thank you very much). To enthrall you with essays by some of  Cascadia’s most compelling writers. To invite you to dive deep, to celebrate our connection to the natural world.  To dazzle your retinas with spectacular images from some of the best photographers in the field today.

So whether you’re a mountaineer, hiker, mountain biker, runner or simply an armchair nature lover; Adventures NW will help you keep it real. It’s about substance. It’s about passion. It’s about adventure.

Our quarterly full-color magazine is published in March, June, September and December. As hard-copy turn-the-pages magazines go, it’s a beauty. Look for it at hundreds of outlets in the Pacific Northwest. Or subscribe here.
