17 Travel Bloggers You Need To Follow On Instagram

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!

AUTHENTIC CHICA

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.

WANDERLUST CHLOE

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!

GLOBETROTTING GINGER

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.

Having my angel moment. ๐Ÿ˜‡

MADDIE BRUCE

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.

TUNI METROPOLIFE

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.

 WANDERING SUNSETS

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.

WORLD OF WANDERLUST

As soon as Brooke graduated from University in the US she booked a one way ticket to London, and the rest is history. Brooke shares travel tips, recipes, lifestyle and DIY on her famous blog and has an Instagram account full of the dreamy places she visits.

ARZO TRAVELS

Arzo lives in Germany and is part-time teacher, part-time traveler, travelling on the weekends and in school holidays to satisfy her addiction. 

ADVENTEROUS KATE

Kate is a famous blogger that quit her job at the age of 26 to travel the world. 63 countries later, Kate has some dreamy photos on her Instagram, some pretty cool posts on her blog, and mostly writes on solo female travel.

THE WANDERLIST BLOG

Alyssa is an American living in London and documents her travels through her gorgeous Instagram account and Snapchat, and writes in-depth blog posts with a sense of humour. She has recently travelled to Slovenia, Morocco and Croatia – check out her Wanderlist in the link in her bio.

DAME TRAVELER

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 โœจ 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 โ†  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. 2๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ has already gotten off to such a great start โ˜บ๏ธ #dametraveler A photo posted by #dametraveler (@dametraveler) on
