Adventure/Extreme Travel Awards Category

The best adventure travel blogs award is a sign that the blogs listed are at the peak of their respective genre. It is a just reward that hard-working bloggers that constantly strive to deliver fresh and informative content such as these deserve.

The overall purpose behind this award is to reveal and promote the blogs that do their utmost to become what they are to this day, and that is the best: being the most informative, accessible, thought-provoking and entertaining blogs on the internet. This achievement is a reward for the bloggers' hard work in maintaining their blogs.

Before the award is given, a list of nominees and potential receivers is carefully selected by our team of dedicated travel experts that act as judges on this occasion. This list is then narrowed down to the actually recipients that you can see before you and this is done by subjecting them to a meticulous selection method which involves comparing and contrasting the blogs for such things as writing style, use of media, user interface, how accessible the blog itself is, and generally just what makes a useable and decent blog.

This category of the awards is dedicated to those blogs that heavily feature adventure or extreme travelling amongst their pages. The criteria under which they were judged included typical things such as attention to detail, response to and from readers, reinforcement of text with associated visual media such as videos and pictures. However, due to the nature of adventure travel and of the blogs themselves, the judging criteria also factored in how exciting or interesting the stories that the bloggers relate to their readers are. After all, excitement is the main factor behind opting to go on an adventure holiday (or merely just wanting to read of someone else's adventure exploits) or to try alternative forms of travel.
