A good looking new travel website launched recently, bringing good coverage to adventure destinations across the globe. The new site, entitled Switchback Travel, is already rich with content and offers articles on several destinations which will no doubt be of interest to readers of this blog as well.
Amongst the stories already posted on the site are an article about hiking in the French Pyrenees, exploring the backroads of Maui, and the climbing, paddling, and backpacking options on the Norway’s Lofoten Islands. That last article is part of a much larger feature on Norway itself, which is billed as Europe’s true wilderness. Other articles take a look at the Great Himalayan Trail, something I’ve written about myself, and give advice on the best camera to take on your next adventure.
All in all, Switchback looks like it is a nice addition to the online travel community, and with its focus on adventure travel, I’m sure I’ll be reading it regularly and using it as a resource for future trips of my own. I like the nice use of photography on the site, and the writing is comprehensive and insightful as well. The site is most definitely off to a good start, so be sure to check it out.
