While social media and influencer pages would lead us to believe that black people don’t participate in adventure travel, we know that’s just not true. We’ve found some of the best black and brown adventure travelers out there. Check them out.

Laura Edmonson

As the founder of @browngirlsclimb, Laura is the advocate for showing black and brown girls the way in rock climbing. The organization often has meetups for women of color to learn the ropes when it comes to the sport. This brown girl shows us that girls do it better, and they look good while doing it too!

His Instagram is full of cool photos from up in the sky.
