About Us

Founded in 2012, Wildsam is an American travel brand built upon telling true stories of place.

We seek out the real and rooted things, and share pathways to deep connections and wonders in the world—for travelers and locals alike.


In Wildsam Magazine, we celebrate the great American road trip through vivid photography, writing from noted authors and expert insight on vehicles and gear.

Our acclaimed Field Guides gather intel from across the map into beautiful books about towns, cities, National Parks, iconic regions and epic road trips.

Here on wildsam.com, you will find all of that and more—digital travel guides, original stories and the best of our magazines and books. Subscribe to our newsletters and follow us on Instagram for the latest.

Contributor Guidelines

We believe the American road trip is a rite of passage and a shared source of wonder—and that out there are answers to big questions. That a desert highway can unlock our best ideas, a rugged pass can summon our courage, a campground can renew our faith in humanity and that a cross-country drive can redraw the map of our lives.
