OutdoorGo! the magazine of outdoor activities

With five issues per year, OutdoorGo! wants you to (re)discover nature as it should be: in motion.

OutdoorGo! is aimed as much at regulars of the trails to make them discover new pleasures and new destinations as at novices tempted by these outdoor activities that are walking, cycling, kayaking, running and many other practices.

The team that imagines and produces this magazine wants to encourage you to walk, run, paddle, pedal… in the heart of nature. For them, outdoor activities are the best way to make our life even more exceptional, our encounters more beautiful and our planet more endearing.

This state of mind induces a double pleasure: experiencing (a little) your body to make it better. And rediscover the fabulous beauties of our planet, far from the virtual or stressful worlds of our daily lives. And no need to be a champion: everyone can (and should) embark on a trek, a bike ride or a kayak tour. You just have to want to, to convince yourself that it is possible and to properly calibrate your first experiences.

With each publication, OutdoorGo! offers :

  • a box of ideas for destinations in France and abroad to browse in “Nature” mode for a weekend, a week or even more
  • a Health section to help you take care of your body and mind and stay in shape all year round
  • many tips for choosing the right equipment before leaving, product selections, tips for getting the most out of it
  • stories of great journeys
  • portraits and interviews of great outdoor encounters,
  • a Bib section to get started in these festive events that are races and push back (a little) your physical or mental limits,
  • but also many photos to make you dream from home before your next outing!
