There are a lot of travel Instagram accounts out there and finding beautiful destinations via Instagram has never been easier. 

Since I’m pretty active myself on Instagram and have been for the last few years, I’ve been lucky enough to connect with some of the best travel Instagrammers in the world.

How the best travel Instagrammers were chosen

There are so many good travel Instagram accounts out there, so of course, this list could be a lot longer. I have handpicked the best travel Instagrammers by the following criteria:

  1. They have High-quality photos
  2. They are posting travel content on a regular basis
  3. They have unique ways of showing the world
  4. They are real travel influencers
  5. They have beautiful feeds that are highly curated
  6. They have great engagement
  7. They show the best destinations around the world
  8. They inspire people to follow their dreams

Please note that these travel Instagram accounts aren’t ranked in any particular order, they are all equally deserving of their place on this list.

If you want to find new Instagrammers on a regular basis without too much effort searching, I can recommend you to follow some of the biggest feature accounts on IG. They post other people’s content and normally post different people’s work each day.

Just make sure to give some love for the content creators at times as well. A big reason how to travel influencers can produce quality content is thanks to their followers and media reach.

Summary of the best travel Instagram accounts

As already mentioned, there are literally thousands of amazing travel Instagrammers out there posting great travel photos. And there are so many ways to measure quality and level of inspiration, but I believe that these 50 travel Instagram accounts are a great start if you want to get daily travel inspiration. 

Most of these Instagrammers travel full-time or at least several months a year. No matter if you want to go to winter destinations, paradise islands, luxury hotels, natural wonders, quaint towns or just some really beautiful places, you can be sure to find it while browsing through their feeds.
