Are you passionate about creating positive change for people and planet through travel? We’re looking for creative, motivated and talented Eco-Bloggers to write for Terra Incognita.

At Terra Incognita we believe that ecotourism can be a powerful force for good in the world. As a social enterprise we seek to promote the best examples of ecotourism worldwide. We do this by collating lists of amazing tour providers who help conserve the environment, support local people and educate guests.

We believe in promoting life-changing experiences rather than tourism ‘products’ and using storytelling to share/communicate these experiences. Our aim is to create a community of passionate people who help create positive change for people and planet through travel.

We were awarded Top 10 Wildlife Travel Blog in 2019 following our first competition, Wildlife Blogger of the Year. In 2020, our Travel Blogger of the Year competition engaged 57,336 people from 178 countries worldwide.
