The Perfect Playlist for Outdoor Adventures

The Perfect Playlist for Outdoor Adventures

One of the best parts of hiking is being able to enjoy the quietness that comes with being out in nature. The sounds are all organic and refreshing – there is no whir of the interstate, no passing sirens or humming electric lines. Without all of those distractions, you can hear cicadas humming, birds singing, the wind in the trees, and the sound of your own footfalls as you make your way along. The sounds of nature painted against the canvas of true quiet is so peaceful and beautiful and it’s one of the main reasons why I love hiking.

Even though I love the quietness of the outdoors, there are times when I know that music can take an awesome hike and transform it into a once in a lifetime hike. The right music paired with the right beautiful backdrop can seriously get you in the moment. That in mind, I wanted to share some of my favorite songs to get lost to in this adventure playlist!

The songs on this list are inspired by all of my favorite places to go hiking – underneath hundred year old Oak trees in North Florida, along the prairie grasslands in Kansas, and everywhere in between. These songs pair perfectly with a walk along a trail or a drive along a scenic byway. Music really does have the power to transform a moment, so I hope you enjoy this adventure playlist I created!

Here are some of my favorite adventure songs!


I hope these songs make your hikes that much more beautiful. Just be sure to be courteous and use headphones if you choose to listen to music on the trail. Some people are there just to enjoy the silence, which is just as beautiful.

Please let me know in the comments which of these songs is your favorite. Or, if you have any favorite adventuring songs, send them my way! I’d love to add them to my list!
