HoneyTrek Editorial and Marketing Campaign for Visit Idaho

HoneyTrek Influencer Campaign
After a brief trip through northern Idaho in 2017 and discovering it has the largest contiguous wilderness area in the Lower 48, a mountain range with 40 peaks over 10,000 feet, and the deepest river gorge in North America…we knew this highly underrated state deserved some deeper exploration. Trying to redirect the spotlight from its famous potatoes to its bounty of geological wonders, we embarked on 1,500-mile road trip and month-long editorial and marketing campaign for Visit Idaho. Our love for Idaho reached over a quarter million people and prompted 25,111 inquisitive and adoring reactions for the Gem State.

Here’s a sampling of the 65+ pieces of content we created for Visit Idaho.
