The 10 Best Travel Instagram Accounts That You Should Be Following

hiking (11)

It’s hard to believe that Instagram has only been popular for the past few years, but If you’re anything like me, scrolling through endless amounts of sweet photos has now become somewhat of a daily routine.

One of the greatest things about Instagram is that it gives an average blogger, or even just a regular Instagram user, the ability to share their high quality photos with the world. However, now that the app is being bombarded with awesome content, one of the hardest parts is trying to figure out which accounts to follow when there are literally THOUSANDS in the category of travel alone.

Here is my selection (in no particular order) of the best travel Instagram accounts, but I’m gonna warn you, these will make you want to drop everything and get on the next flight to …anywhere!

1. Gypsea Lust
To Follow: @gypsea_lust

Lauren’s life is seemingly nothing other than oceans, waterfalls, and beautiful scenery. Following her will make you want to burn all your winter clothes, fill your backpack with nothing but swimwear and head to the nearest body of water.


2. Le Postcard
To Follow: @lepostcard

Le Postcard is dedicated to showing off the more luxurious side of travel, featuring some of the most alluring holiday locations from around the world all centred around an obvious theme of crystal clear ocean water.


3. Muradosmann
To Follow: @muradosmann

You may already be familiar with Murad’s work. The Russian photographer found fame when shooting images of his fiance leading him around the world in his ‘Follow Me To’ Instagram series. I’m still waiting for the call up to be his next ‘follow me to’ model.


4. Patchin Pixels
To Follow: @patchinpixels

Pretty damn unique imagery.  Patricia has a real talent for taking feel good photos and is nothing short of a natural born photographer. Super colourful and inspiring!


5. Globetrotting Ginger Travel
To Follow:@globetrotting_gingertravel

With her long, flowing red hair providing an epic contrast to her surroundings, this girl knows how to put herself in the shot and turn an average photo into an outstanding one. Her photos make me want live in the wilderness! The hardest of hardcore earth porn!

6. The Planet D
To Follow:@theplanetd

Dave and Deb from The Planet D are probably the most famous travel bloggers in the world and after a quick glance at their photos it’s not hard to see why. Not only are they talented writers, their travel photography is up there with the best. An Instagram you could set your watch to!


7. My life’s A Movie
To Follow:@mylifesamovie

Whether it’s solo camping adventures, feeding pigs in the ocean, or wearing super long dresses whilst walking into a waterfall, Alyssa knows how to live an adventurous life regardless of the destination. She’s a massive inspiration for other girls trying to find the courage to travel solo and her GoPro shots are unbelievable.


8. Do You Travel
To Follow:@doyoutravel

Self-taught Instagramer, Jack Morris, definitely knows how to take a photograph. If his images were anything to go by, it would have to be presumed that the only people left on the planet were him and his annoyingly photogenic girlfriend. 1.9 million followers and counting, woaaaahhh!

9. Chris Burkard
To Follow:@chrisburkard

Professional photographer Chris Burkard takes surfing photos in places not conventionally known to be a surfers natural habitat – These pictures leave you feeling still and slightly sedated…in a good way. His astonishing ice-surfing images explore the vast isolation of the frozen regions  of Iceland, Alaska and many, many more!


10. Pause The Moment
To Follow: @pausethemoment

Not so Instagram famous (yet), Ryan is the man behind Pause the Moment. Often chilling in Mexico or flying his drone over some amazing scenery, his Instagram account is packed full of colour and water.  Delicious!


My Instagram is pretty cool too. Check it out here


So is my girlfriend’s. Check it out here



  1. Great post. I can never have enough travel insta accounts to follow, now I have some more! I’ll make sure to follow you too. If you fancy following me back mine is @the_wandering_welshie

  2. Oh, I miss those turquoise colour from Le Postcard’s Instagram. I need to move somewhere to the tropics to add some turquoise to my Instagram. And just to say, I am fan of Alyssa Ramos! Alyssa rules!

  3. Great post and already following all these amazing instagramers! 🙂

  4. Aw, Instagram. These are some huge accounts. They certainly know what they are doing.

  5. These accounts make our photogrophy look so bad! Definitely gives me some motivation to shoot better pics!

  6. Gary Arndt (@everythingeverywhere) is a glaring omission from this list. He’s as skilled a travel photographer as anyone I know. I do concur with your inclusion of The Planet D; Dave truly takes awesome photos and is highly proficient at editing them. He’s also a very nice guy. By the way, as a travel blogger, I don’t need any special inspiration to jump on a plane. 🙂

  7. This is such a great list of lovely Instagram accounts. I’m only following a few of these so I’ll definitely check out the rest. Thanks for sharing and happy travels 🙂

  8. Great inspiration! I was following half of these but have now added a few extras (including yours & your girlfriends!) Those featured on this list sure do know how to capture a great scene, I can see why they have been included. Thanks!

  9. These guys are so talented! I just love looking through all the amazing travel photos. Thanks for putting all of these in one place so I know who to follow on Instagram!

  10. All of these are great and I follow a few already actually. I’ll definitely follow the rest. Great post idea and I like how you’re supporting other travelers! Kudos 🙂

  11. Thank you so much for including me in this list! Happy Travels!
