Adventurecore is the aesthetic that involves adventure, the great unknown, and exploration. The main theme and philosophy is encouraging curiosity and having a yearning to see it all. The original creator, Tumblr user advenchurre (now deactivated), stated "It's about the idea of navigating the world like you're a protag about to set off on a big cross-country journey. Even if you live in the suburbs"[1].

It originated on Tumblr, and was created on July 9th, 2019, but has since then branched out into different social media platforms such as Instagram and Tik Tok.
