Travel Documentaries That Feel Like an Adventure

"Alex Honnold" in Free Solo

Do you miss being able to travel freely without having to worry about Corona tests, vaccines, and masks? Us, too. The reality is that we can’t travel nearly as much as we’d like to right now. But nobody can stop us from watching these travel documentaries that will give you the adrenaline rush that you used to get only from travel.

Expedition Happiness

Expedition Happiness tells the story of a German couple with a bad, very relatable case of wanderlust that leads them to go on a road trip across North America in an old school bus accompanied by their dog, Rudy. If you’ve ever wanted to just leave everything behind and commit to a life of adventure on the road, you’ll love this film.

Free Solo

Most of us can barely climb up an indoor rock climbing wall with a harness, which makes the feat that Alex Honnold takes on in Free Solo nearly impossible to even imagine. Climbing an over 3,000-foot mountain with no ropes or safety nets? Yep, your palms will sweat.

March of the Penguins

What greater adventure can you possibly go on than crossing the harsh landscape of Antarctica in order to find your mate? Not only is this documentary cute, but it’s also narrated by Morgan Freeman. What else could you ask for?
