Need travel inspiration? From sunning it up in Marrakech to hiking up glaciers in Argentina, these top 17 travel bloggers have been there, done it. I wouldn’t call myself a photographer, but I do love taking photos of the countries and cultures I visit around the world.
I recently backpacked Vietnam, and my friends will tell you I had a camera in my hand 99% of the time (I spend half the time hanging off the back of a moped on a 6 lane highway with a camera to my face – hows that for commitment?) But I don’t necessarily feel like Instagram is just a platform to post your own photos.
Instagram is also a place to get inspired by other bloggers and photographers from around the world. I began blogging a few months ago and since then have met some pretty inspirational people, both in person and on social media.
Keeping up with them and their incredible photos on Instagram has almost become part of my daily routine…and I love it! Here are my top 17 travel bloggers that are killing it on Instagram. Check them out and get inspired!
Based in Holland, Naomi from Authentic Chica is a top travel blogger and globetrotter who documents her authentically chic adventures across the world. We met through Instagram and have since become instafriends through our mutual obsession.
Woke up with memories of infinitypools of one of my favourite hotels of all time: The Danna on Langkawi💙💙💙 Kasia of @stylishtravel threw me back to this #collectmoments nr.12 as she is driving me crazy with her beautiful Thailand hotel pics😃check out her ig and website for Thailand’s most Stylish Travel Tips!👌♡
Chloe and I met at a blogger event a couple of months ago. Originally from the UK, Chloe left her office job in 2014 to travel the world and hasn’t looked back since. She recently travelled to St Kitts, Chile and Morocco – an addict!
I don’t think life gets much more photogenic than this! After a 4am wake up to see the El Tatio Geysers (which were amazing!) we stopped off at this magical spot, full of beautful scenery, mirror pools and wildlife. Check out loads more photos over on my NEW BLOG now (link in bio). 🇨🇱❤️☀️ (📸 @backpackermacca) A photo posted by Chloe Gunning 👻wanderlustchloe (@wanderlustchloe) on
Aubrie is the queen of posting incredible earth porn shots. Her photos make me want to dig out my hiking boots (yep really) and book a one way ticket to the US.
I met Maddie a few months ago and love her constant stream of travel paradise on Instagram. She also vlogs about fashion and beauty too. Check out the link in her bio for her YouTube channel.

Jen is originally from South Florida but has lived in a ton of cities around the world. Her Instagram is an accumulation of crystal clear oceans, green palm trees and insane sunsets. YES
I visited Denmark a couple of months ago and instantly fell in love with the place – I think this is what has stemmed my slight obsession with Tuni’s Instagram. Studying in Copenhagen and running a lifestyle and travel blog on the side, Tuni posts daily photos of everything Danish, Scandinavia and interior.
It happened again 😍 @natalyosmann from #Followmeto shared our picture in their latest video with @muradosmann💋 I am so happy and grateful ❤ #metropolife A photo posted by Tuni @ metropolife copenhagen (@tuni.metropolife) on
Parisian Julie packed up her bags ten years ago and left Paris to follow her dreams of living in the US. Since then she has travelled the world and shares her incredible photos from her travels with us on her Instagram.
The ultimate shrine of love, as magnificent and breathtaking as can be imagined. ___________________________ #dailylifeindia #incredibleindia #wu_india #gf_india #ig_india #ig_indiashots #indiaclicks #Igersrajasthan #india_gram #storiesofindia #indiapictures #indianphotography #everydayindia #IndianExpress #india_ig #_coi #photographers_of_india #ig_india #ohmyindia #rajasthanDiaries #rajasthanTales #tajmahal #wanderlust #wanderingsunsets #livetravelchannel #worldplaces #itstheplacethatitis #discover_india

Dame traveler is an account that inspires women to get out and travel, warning – it’s so easy to scroll and scroll with this one as every photos is as gorge as the next.
Dame Traveler @thehalcyonhygge ✨ I celebrated my birthday this year further from the crowds and closer to the stars in the sky. Having a winter birthday isn’t always ideal if you’re allergic to the cold like myself (it’s a real thing), so I took to a warmer destination.. No, not the beach ↠ the desert! The best of both worlds: summer during the day and winter at night: both escaping and embracing the winter chills! While glamping in a teepee was an amazing experience, I don’t think traditional camping will ever be anything short of spectacular for me. There’s nothing quite like the night sky lit by only stars and the crescent moon. And lying beneath it surrounded in silence and pure white dunes of sand is an out of this world experience. Probably my favorite part of the day, though, was watching the sun set behind the mountains as the white sand reflected the soft pastels of the sleepy sky. 2️⃣2️⃣ has already gotten off to such a great start ☺️ #dametraveler A photo posted by #dametraveler (@dametraveler) on

THE WANDERLUST BUG
Last night’s sky disco. 😳🙌🏻😍 || Legend has it that there are many myths and stories attached to the magical displays that we see in the sky. 💫 The Vikings believed that the Northern Lights were the bridge between this world and world of the Gods.🌛They believed that the breaks in the lights were made by evil giants trying to cross into the other world. Visit (and follow! 🙈) my Facebook page for more photos from last night and other stories about the lights from around the world. 🌍 Link in bio 😊 A photo posted by Liberty • 24 • London (@thewanderlustbug) on
