“Going to the mountains is going home.” - John Muir

Our favorite landscape by far is the mountains. There is something about the grandness and scale of these giant beasts of nature. A serenity that captures the very essence of why we venture out into nature in the first place. To find ourselves and come to a better understanding of the world we live in. To feel alive. John Muir lays it out perfectly here in one of the best quotes about nature!

"On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it." - Jules Renard

When you step into the unknown places of nature, you open yourself up to the possibilities of finding something new and spectacular.

These moments and feelings bring us to a higher place that separates us from our worries and fears for just a moment. It’s like a slice of heaven!

“Looking at beauty in the world is the first step of purifying the mind.” - Amit Ray

Take a moment and unwind in nature. When you let yourself go and let things be, then you are truly able to live in the moment. There is something so relaxing and enjoyable about being one with nature. There is no outside noise to distract you. Just the birds chirping, the wind whirring, and the soft buzz of animal sounds. It’s a great state of mind to be in while traveling. This is one of those travel quotes that is best enjoyed with friends.

Camping nature quote

“Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them.” - Mark Twain

There are many inventions that have helped humans to get to where we are now in the world. However, some of these technologies can hinder our judgement and lead us down paths that we shouldn’t follow. Paths that cause more hatred than there ever needs to be. Part of this is because money drives the economies that we all live in. However, nature provides an outlet for us to get away from all the technology out there that is so readily available for us these days. Take time to enjoy those moments away.

Nature quote by Mark Twain

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." - Anthony J. D'Angelo

This is one of the best nature quotes we’ve ever come across! Probably because we’ve seen this mindset shift and what it can do while traveling. For instance, we were in the Canadian Rockies there was one day that it was pouring rain. There was no possible way we could do a hike into the beautiful mountains surrounding us. Rather than sulking, we took the afternoon to soak in a local hot spring and rejuvenate our bodies. It felt amazing and then the next day, when the clouds cleared, we had fresh legs and healthy bodies to enjoy the hike. If we wouldn’t have had a positive mindset the day before, we would not have been ready physically or mentally for what was in store the rest of the trip!


where to stay in nature


“Time spent amongst trees is never time wasted.” - Katrina Mayer

We find this to be true always. No matter what trip we are on, whether it’s local or abroad, we always find peace amongst the trees. Even if it’s raining, there is something in the solitude and freshness of the forest that relieves any tensions we had leading into those moments. Plus, there is usually a great viewpoint at the end of our forest walks, which always pays off in the end!

"Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature." - Gerard De Nerval

Imagine if your soul was embedded in all living things. Would you treat nature differently? Would you pick up trash in the woods or remove some plastic from the beach when you saw it? We believe that we all come from the same place and all living things should be treated equally. That’s why when we see something beautiful in nature, we take time to respect it and take in the beauty coming from it. Nature is a beautiful thing. While this travel quote is full of wanderlust, it also hits home to some realities of how we have to view the nature around us.

Nature quote for travelers

“The goal is to discover your nature and nature helps you do it.” - Maxime Lagacé

We consider this another one of the best travel quotes because it blends nature with the exploratory mindset of all travelers. The goal of all travelers, whether they know it or not, is to discover what they are searching for within. Nature is just the means to understanding those things about you. When you lose yourself in your surroundings, you end up finding the most intimate things about yourself as well.

Discover nature quote


“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

There's nothing better than immersing yourself in the true wildness of nature. Jumping in the ocean, climbing a mountain, breathing it all in and living in the moment. That's what life is all about!

Inspirational quotes about nature


“The forest makes your heart gentle. You become one with it. No place for greed or anger there.” - Pha Pachak

This is one of the most powerful changes that nature brings to all adventurers. The change of your mindset. You could have the most arrogant or unwelcoming person in the world with you, but if you bring them into nature and give it a few hours, they will come out kinder and more appreciative of life. We guarantee that! And if the mindset shift is only brief at first, the more you bring that person into nature with you, the more they will let their guard down and appreciate life for what it is.

Inspiring quote about nature

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer” - Albert Camus

This is a great nature quote because it shows how strong you can become after you dedicate yourself to a grueling battle with the elements. There was one moment at Berg Lake when we undertook a 30-kilometer day of hiking to reach the beautiful glacial lake. It started raining near the end and we were cold and beaten down from the journey. However, when we got back to our campsite at the end of the day, we had this immense feeling of success and gratification. We were on top of the world! And nature helped get us there.
