Travel Well Magazine explores travel that’s good for you and good for the world around you. Our mission is to inspire travel that’s a healthy balance of exploration, adventure, and a consciousness for personal, cultural and environmental health, and we are looking for contributors who embody this mission in one or more of these areas who can craft engaging, well-researched articles and stories to inspire positive actions in our readers.

Subject Areas

The list below is a general overview of topics we cover. Contributors should pitch us their ideas before submitting fully written pieces, and we encourage fresh, out-of-the-box ideas as long as they fall under the general travel wellness umbrella. Suggested topic areas include:

  • Active and adventure travel
  • Active traveler’s guides, like this
  • Photography and photo stories
  • Exploration of interesting destinations and offbeat sites, like this
  • Ecotourism and ways to make traditional travel more environmentally friendly
  • Animal protection and wildlife conservation, including profiles like this
  • Cuisine, including restaurant profiles, local specialties and seasonal recipes*
  • Volunteer tourism
  • Profiles of local individuals and communities and how they are affected by tourism

  • Travel-focused health and fitness articles, such as spotlights of fitness professionals (like this), companies (like this), program reviews, and guides*

*Please keep in mind our health and fitness philosophy is all about healthy life balance. While we are avid enthusiasts of health-conscious lifestyles, we also believe it’s important to indulge, relax and enjoy those once-in-a-lifetime moments, even if they aren’t usually considered healthy. It’s those special things that nourish the mind and soul, so we welcome articles and stories in these areas as well.
