32 Instagram Captions for Hiking and Adventures

I love hiking, I love adventures, and yes…I love Instagram! So I thought that talking about Instagram captions for hiking and adventures might be kind of fun.

We spend so much time staring at our camera rolls trying to figure out which picture to post on our IG feeds. More than we should.

It’s happened to you, right? Not to mention, there are tons of other social media channels that we use.

But to each, their own, and Instagram is primarily for pictures. But once you figure out which picture you like best, do you know what your caption is going to be?

Because if you’re like me, after clicking on ‘new post’, I go blank. Like literally, no words are popping into my brain!

Writing captions isn’t my thing. But for social media presence, it’s kind of a big deal. I could go on for days writing on my blogs or just writing random stuff in my notebooks.

But for some reason, Instagram captions give me a headache. It’s like I just can’t get through them.

Writing Captions for My Outdoor Photos

If you’ve followed me for some time, you might’ve already noticed that I’m making an effort to switch things up and come up with better captions. If I suck at it, please don’t tell me. Or should you? I’m not sure. 🧐

On all my captions, I’m always adding the pin emoji (📍) with the location name at the bottom of each picture. I’ve been doing it since my very first IG post and it kind of defines Next Stop Adventures. But more thoughts and ideas have crossed my mind and I plan to continue making some changes to my social media.

  1. Some of these are fab! I love “A little more altitude, a little less attitude.” as well as “forest, FOR REST”

    I feel like having good captions like this are also good for taking some of the pressure off from taking the perfect photo.
