What is Outforia?
Outforia is the world’s new favorite place to discover everything you seek – plus much more you never knew about – regarding the beautiful wildernesses of Planet Earth and many pastimes we humans enjoy out in them.
Our passion for empowering people to connect with nature runs deep. And that belief flows through in everything we create for Outforia. We work with an intense personal passion behind all we do with the goal of becoming a trusted friend who you can always count on to give it to you straight.
The goal is for Outforia to become your go-to resource for all things wild. Because as the legendary Henry David Thoreau said in Walden, “We can never have enough of nature.” We know that’s true for us. Is it true for you?
Do you have a childhood tale connecting you eternally to nature’s energy?
Did you ever spot a bear and her cubs while camping out in the Rocky Mountains? Stand at the foot of a glacial lake formation and feel its power beneath your feet? Or even just walk through your local woods amid birdsong so thick you could lay on it?
Just as our grandfathers showed us how to pan for gold and aunts taught us how to find edible mushrooms and preserve wild garlic, Outforia is an incredibly vast resource ready to help you excel in the hobbies you already love or find something entirely new to fuel your next adventures.
We created Outforia through a collective love for the wild yet having no collective space to celebrate it.
Every member of our team – just like you – has spent hours stumbling between disconnected, ad-heavy, biased and unusable sites to find the right reviews, best local guides and leading regional knowledge. With Outforia, we gather all that and more into one delightfully convenient platform.
While we enjoy the exhaustion our outdoor adventures bring, we don’t want to break a sweat online! And so, with no suitably welcoming and informative forum, we created our own.
Everything you read here has been curated with care by our very real and very friendly team. And that means the opinions on outdoors equipment found here are honest and reliable. If we like something, we’ll let you know. And if there’s any improvements needed, we’ll report those too.

Our Editorial Policy
Outforia stands by the integrity of its journalistic content. Every member of the Outforia pledges to publish only unbiased, non-monetized views. All news, reviews, articles and features are shared with full transparency as to performance and purpose with any brand input clearly noted.
We meticulously fact-check every article shared for accuracy of quotes, features, pricing and more. We will be as efficient as possible in updating any information published that is no longer accurate, whether discovered in-house or brought to our attention by a valued user.
We respect ownership of visual collateral and only use media for which we have ownership or express approval by the media’s owner. Likewise, any media no longer approved for use will be promptly removed.
Outforia pledges to practice total transparency in any current or future advertising. We do not take on many advertising partners, instead fashioning our platform as an unbiased place to be regarded and relied upon by outdoors enthusiasts perhaps tired of the marketing-heavy approach seen in many of the world’s online information outlets.
In the name of responsible affiliate advertising, any brand affiliation we deem suitable for Outforia will be made explicitly clear to you, our valued reader. After all, we are a fully user-supported site and do what we do for our users alone.
Outforia’s only running advertisement is one of the majesty of Planet Earth and the joy to be had on it, as advertised through our continually thriving and always passionate family of moderators and users.
