PLACES YOU'D RATHER BE...
Destination guides for awesome places around the world. Written by Adventurers, for Adventurers covering adventure, hiking, climbing, travel and more!
Mountain Designs was born from a passion for adventure and the outdoors. The MD community loves to travel, explore, and try new adventures. In fact, we're crazy about it. One of the best parts of this is not only having a good brag, but also sharing those experiences with others so that we can all enjoy what this wonderful world has to offer!
Over the years, our MD staff, friends, sponsored athletes and avid adventurers have written articles on their favourite places. If you're looking for a new adventure, have a browse through and take your pick!
Check back every so often, as we'll continue to add articles as we get to more places in the world (and find time in front of the computer)!
