Who we are
We are Melanie and Martin and we believe in actively exploring nature.
As much as we enjoy a relaxing day at the beach, we are made for exploring. You find us hiking up mountains, putting on a wetsuit for the next adventure in the ocean or hitting the road to get closer to the next destination before it gets dark.
No matter what we are doing, Martin always carries his camera and Melanie her notebook to capture the best moments. So have a look at our pictures or read our travel reports to get some inspiration for your next trip.
What you will find on activetravel.rocks
The standard travel guides cover the main attractions, accommodation and eating out pretty well. When it comes to actively exploring nature other resources are needed. Unfortunately research on the internet is cumbersome and many local enterprises try to sell you the most simple thing as an experience of a lifetime.
Realizing that information for active traveling is hard to find, we decided to launch this website, share our experience and provide only the most useful information to people having the same interests.
Our goal is to give a realistic description going beyond the high quality pictures we all know too well. We will tell you if a spot is really worth it, even if you have to share it with 500 people. We also tell you if there is a nice spot just a few kilometers further.

In the long term, we want to establish ActiveTravel.Rocks as the main address for premium information on active nature exploration all over the world.
