About Our World Travel Magazine and Website

We do travel, adventure and culture—for real.

For two decades, Outpost has been Canada’s best travel magazine. Through our website and more than 100 issues of our magazine, we’ve shared our explorations of the real world. From the people we’ve met to the trails we’ve forged, we’ve taken you along every step of the way as we’ve revealed the planet’s hidden corners and intriguing places.

Our magazine and website offers you compelling travel stories in funny and lively prose, with irreverent and insightful perspectives and more than a few thrillseeking rides along the way! Every article is beautifully crafted, rich with hi-resolution photos and captivating long form journalism. We share the knowledge and experience we’ve gathered during our travels to help make your own journeys safer and more rewarding and keep you on top of the latest travel trends and emerging destinations.

Our website is crafted to give you real insights and useful tips in an entertaining, thoughtful and occasionally quirky way complete with video, correspondent despatches and live blogs from the field. 

With a focus on down-to-earth experiences, inspiring off-the-path destinations, and under-reported and unique cultures, we aim to help support and protect wildlife and wilderness environments, mountain and desert regions, and indigenous people around the globe.

Based out of Kensington Market in Toronto, our travel magazine and travel website has been inspiring people from Canada and around the world for two decades and has garnered numerous awards over the years, including the prestigious National magazine Award for Magazine of the Year. 

Thank you from all of us here at Team Outpost for taking the time to learn a little bit about us, and we hope you will give us the chance to inspire you to explore this amazing planet.
