The Faces Behind Hike the World


This is Ryan and Laura. Two friends who bonded over their mutual love of Game of Thrones, craft beer and, of course, HIKING! During an intense conversation over a fire pit in Laura’s backyard, Ryan shared his vision for Hike the World. The passion for his company ignited a fire in Laura and she harassed him mercilessly until he agreed to give her part ownership.


Building Community On The Trails



We decided to build a brand and a community that meant something to hikers around the world. A brand that inspired people to get outside and volunteer for their local trail conference. A brand focused on building community, mental health awareness and volunteer programs through hiking around the world. Our ultimate goal is to cultivate a deep appreciation for nature so profound that it becomes infused in future generations.


Our website will be filled with incredible hiking content, including one-of-a-kind videos and dynamic stories from hikers all around the world.  We’ll be detailing our own hiking adventures and volunteer experiences but we also hope to share some of yours.


We’re also putting our money where our mouth is. Each month, we will be donating 5% of our profits to different organizations that believe in keeping our parks, our forests and our mountains clean, safe and beautiful. We’ll promote these organizations with features on our website, sharing their mission and vision with our community of passionate hikers.


If you want to submit content or highlight your non-profit organization, please send an email to or

Together, we’ll hike the world!
