You expect the feed of a regular outdoorsy guy and you are, almost shockingly, met with pure magic. Moonlit paths, sunlit peaks, the most beautiful foggy panoramas you have seen, and more. Ruggedly romantic!


Is this girl made of steel? Her last name “çeliku” means exactly that in Albanian, so there may be something to it. From rock climbing adventures to rugged bike rides and the discoveries of uncharted territories, this feed is pretty dang awesome.


Perhaps the most beloved Instagram accounts of the Albanian outdoors! Everyone knows him and that is because Fation Plaku, arguably one of the best independent tour guides in the country, shares beautiful experiences, not only great photos.


This “regular outdoor girl, with a bohemian soul” offers exactly that! Natural wilderness and rugged sceneries with a touch of the bohemian. From dips in thermal pools to the peaks of some of the most picturesque mountains around the country, this curious soulful girl can take you places and tell you all about them.


This is not the feed of a show-off but a person who truly enjoys being surrounded by nature and all it has to offer. The photos give off an unmistakable postivie energy, a sense of fulfillment and eagerness to calmly explore. If you want a shot of serenity on your feed, chek it out!

We call this the chocolate box of feeds and not only because @erald.halili unapologetically goes for the square format! No, it is because each square holds a different flavor, unexpected and always exciting. The colorful feed takes high and low and everywhere in between!


Just like her name suggests (in Greek mythology, Artemisa was the goddess of the wilderness), this explorer of everything wild will inspire and surprise you. As you look at her feed, you will long to see exactly what the girl in the most enviable colorful backpacks sees!

A simple, yet gorgeous and romantic feed. It serves up the outdoors in a seemingly simple platter that is ultimately almost hypnotizing. The chronicles of travels and places visited are posted in sweet captures and pleasant colors that can leave you relaxed.
