Here at National Park Trips, we’ve always admired the masterful writing, photography, and movie-making that Outside magazine and Outside TV produce year after year after year. But as of Feb. 22, 2021, we’re now all part of the same family. That’s because our parent company, Pocket Outdoor Media (POM), has acquired these iconic brands, along with Gaia GPS (the leading mobile mapping application for backcountry adventure), athleteReg (one of the world’s largest event registration services), and Peloton magazine (the highly respected cycling publication).
And on top of that, our bigger, better new company will be known as Outside. You can read more about this news here.
The acquisition of these brands and rebranding of POM as Outside, which was announced today by our CEO Robin Thurston, is great news for fans of National Park Trips—and even better news for members of our Active Pass program.
“Everything we do is driven by a belief that a hike, run, ride, or yoga practice can change your life,” said Thurston, “and these amazing brands will help us fulfill that mission by expanding the content and experiences we can offer you.”
That means more stories about national parks, more videos from life-list destinations, more road trips, more recipes, more fitness tips, more gear reviews, and more creative ideas for getting out and living the life you’ve been dreaming about.
