Kelty’s #MustFollow Outdoor Women on Instagram

Get Insta-inspired! Courtesy: Kelty

There’s something magical about seeing the world through a different set of eyes. For many of us, Instagram is a source of inspiration, community, and endless new adventures to add to our bucket list.

At Kelty, we’ve connected with some amazing women through Instagram. From photographers and yogis to moms and animal lovers, these women are doing incredible things and inspiring others to get outside.

Meet a few of our favorites, in no particular order:

@missholldoll From rope swinging in Hawaii to snowshoeing on Mt. Rainier, Holly Johnson’s adventures come to life in awe-inspiring photography that leaves us speechless every time.


@gypsywifelife Anastasia Coleman describes herself as a wife, mother, and lover of all things natural. Those three roles come together in perfect harmony throughout her feed, as she explores the world with her husband and adorable son (and usually a fishing rod in hand).


@misshalimarie The best way to describe Hali Kippola’s feed is pure fun. With great friends, cute dogs, and amazing outdoor scenery, Hali makes us want to grab a friend and get outside.

@hikingdiva We simply can’t get enough of watching @hikingdiva’s adventures with Tuxie, the cat who loves to hike. Tuxie explores forests, crosses bridges, and climbs rocks with ease, and can’t wait to get into the tent at night – proving that hiking and camping aren’t just for dogs anymore.

@hopeisdopee Hope Lane gives us a taste of outdoor life in Southern California, from backyard tent parties to weekend getaways in Joshua Tree National Park. With an edgy and spontaneous vibe, we’d gladly join Hope’s crew anytime.


@ashleelangholz Need a taste of life in the Pacific Northwest? Look no further than Ashlee Langholz. Nights in fire lookouts, kayaking outside Seattle, and exploration by seaplane are just a few of her many adventures.


@stokedyogi Yoga meets the outdoors in Amelia Travis, with amazing landscapes, inspiring quotes, and helpful tips. We can’t help but feel more centered just by looking at Amelia’s feed.


@marisajarae As a Colorado-based photographer, Marisa loves adventure and light – and both shine brightly throughout her Instagram feed. We love seeing the world through the eyes of Marisa and her trusty camera, affectionately named Gladys.


@breezeturner The adventures of Breeze Turner and Marley, her golden retriever, usually take place on a stand-up paddleboard. In addition to her stunning photography, Breeze reminds us that the love between a girl and her dog is simply the best.
