16 Travel Instagram Accounts You Need To Follow… Like Right Now!

Seeing travel bloggers on Instagram is the primary reason I had the courage to start up my own travel blog. I currently follow so many Instagram travel bloggers that my feed is a constant stream of #lifegoals and #wanderlustwednesdays, and I am so not complaining.

Everyone loves a little travel inspo, so here’s a list of my favourite travel Instagram accounts. Give them a follow. But I’m going to warn you. Every time you look at Insta you’ll be itching to book yourself a one way ticket far far away…


Trying not to toot my own horn here, but I thought I would add myself to this list! I think my Instragram is pretty darn good. It’s where I found  my love of photography and one of the reasons I decided to start a blog. If you enjoy the outdoors and adventures then you will definitely like my photos on your feed!

Alyssa’s Instagram game is spot on! I love that she posts at least everyday, and she keeps her Instagram story up to date on all of her travel mishaps! She also takes all her photos by herself, which is super impressive!

World of Wanderlust was the very first travel blog I ever followed on Instagram. This was ages ago and she still posts amazing photos! Her outfit game is also amazing and she has so many cute hats!

A post shared by Sam Potter (@captainpotter) on

I’ve only recently started following Sam Potter on Instagram and he is definitely the new and improved Jay Alvarez. He goes on incredible adventures around the world while taking videos and photos, yes. But he captions his posts with some deep and meaningful stuff that will really get you thinking. He also just did a campaign on cleaning up oceans which I am all for!

Nicola has become one of my favourite travel Instagrammers! She is currently travel around the world, just got a drone, AND is hosting her first photography trip that you can go on! I love her girly photos and all her super cute outfits.

A post shared by Carlinn (@campsbaygirl) on

You may not know of Carlinn, but you really should! Her Instagram is full of gorgeous colourful beach photos and so many hats, it will give anyone envy! Although she has just recently started gaining a massive following on Insta, this might change as Kayla Itsines just reposted on of her photos! #Eeek!!

Kiersten is another one of the “original” travel bloggers. She has been travelling for years and just recently got a place in Cape Town. Her photos are so fun to look at and really show her vibrant personality through the lens!

A post shared by LAUREN BULLEN (@gypsea_lust) on

Lauren and her boyfriend Jack have been getting a lot of hype online lately regarding their travels and getting paid to large sums of money every time they post on Insta. Her photos all have this mellow, beachy vibe about them and honestly, their lives are total #goals.

Katie just recently quit her job to travel the world and has taken to Instagram to share her adventures. She is so relatable in her posts and gives you an inside look on her day to day life! I really enjoy how informative her posts are and how often she posts about her travels! I can always be certain that I have a new post from Katie to look forward to everyday!

Heather and Bryant share some pretty amazing photos from Hawaii on their Instagram. From beach vibes to unreal sunflower shots, they somehow make every scene and every person look amazing. They also have their Lightroom presets for sale on their blog, which is so handy if you want to replicate their photographic style.

A post shared by Kelly (@goprogirl) on

Kelly’s Instagram is full of all of her exciting adventures hiking and exploring the world with her GoPro (and sometimes her super adorable dogs). Her posts make me want to get out and go exploring and they will do the same for you!

Kat is one of the coolest girl bosses out there! She posts often on how to gain a following on social media and make your dreams come true. She also does live sessions every Thursday, where she talks about social marketing hacks. These hacks aren’t your run of the mill, overused ones either, and most of what she talks about I’ve never heard of before! So refreshing!

I’ve actually been obsessed with Rachel’s blog for a while. She moved to Goa and now posts about her travels there and around the world. Her Instagram name says when it comes to her photo style. It’s a mix between hippie, casual and girly girl, which I feel like I can really relate too!

A post shared by J E S S (@jess.wandering) on

Jess is a photographic, hiking genius! Her photos are unreal and the landscapes and camping adventures featured are amazing to see! She is always on the move and her mountain shots are wicked.

Jayce’s Instagram is a “just for fun” account where she posts about her life. Her photos are all in muted hues and feature her in adorable outfits on the edge of cliffs, etc… They are the perfect mix of fashion and adventure and I’m in love!

Follow her here, @theprettywild


Last, but definitely not least, is Veera. She is a Finnish travel blogger who posts food and travel photos with a minimalistic flare. I love how real she is online and how she tries to answer all the messages and comments on her posts.
