Urban Exploration Friends

Urban Exploration just is not about the locations we visit but also about the friends and acquaintances we make along the way.

This page holds links to the people and communities we hold in high regard.

Urban Exploration Kitchener / Waterloo

UEKW is a Urban Exploration group based in the Kitchener / Waterloo area in Ontario and home to our good friend Crossfire, and is a Midnight Exploration Crew Canada (MECCA) site This group also hosts a great forum (link accesible from this site). Our good friends Dark Shadow, Frost, Capone, journeylady, Simmoril, and Big In Japan are oftern found lurking on this forum.

Urban Exploration Resources

Urban Exploration Resource offers articles, photo galleries, stories, and an active forum for the Urban Exploration and Infiltration Community.


The website and zine that started it all. It features a forum (uer mirror), webring, dictionary, and many pointers. The founder Ninjalicious, passed away in August of 2005, was a great loss to the community.

UE WebRing

This ring contains sites focussing on the art of urban exploration: touring storm drains, abandoned buildings, rooftops, transit tunnels, college steam tunnels and other off-limits locations.

Ontario Abandoned Places

This is most definitely Ontario's Largest Ghost Town / Abandonment Webpage. Recent new facelift. This on-line resource provides photographs, history and stories of old towns in Ontario and is maintained by a friend located in the frozen wastelands of northern Ontario.


My very excellent friends Air33 and Jannx share some of their absolutely beautiful and engaging urban exploration photography on this site. I have explored with these two before and have been looking at their flickr images for some time.

Great! Thanks for the glowing mention! I'm still working on the other site (main one) and will upload in the near future with a friends/links page.

You don't want to list the groups on Flickr? I'm only playing the violin cause Ontario Rural Ruins is the group I started there.
