Mikah Meyer

Described as a “Professional Road Tripper” by REI, Minneapolis-based national parks expert, Mikah Meyer, has also been called everything from a “Sexy Travel Guru” to a “Best Instagram to Follow,” and featured by media outlets like MTV, The BBC, and National Geographic Traveler. Mikah has spoken for audiences from Amazon.com’s headquarters to National Park Foundation galas, and works annually with brands like Eddie Bauer, CamelBak, and Brooks Running on helping outside enthusiasts best experience the great outdoors.

Mikah has been featured by NPR, The Today Show, and National Geographic Traveler for his three-year road trip to all 400+ U.S. National Park Service sites.


He is the founder of the Outside Safe Space program that makes outdoor and rural spaces more welcoming to LGBTQ+ people. Shattering barriers in adventure marketing, in 2018, Mikah became the First Openly Gay Man Featured in an Outdoors Recreation Ad (with REI).

Named a “Stonewall #Pride50 innovator and changemaker” by NBC for World Pride 2019, Mikah has performed over 200 live shows about diversity & inclusion for audiences from Amazon.com’s headquarters to National Park Foundation galas. With a carpe diem ethos inspired by the loss of his road-trip-loving father to cancer, Mikah uses travel not only for “adventure advocacy” projects, but to inspire audiences to live beyond convention.
