  1. Great review! A lot of inspiration indeed. We love reading you and I believe you are missing @hey.travel, I love their couple shoots all over the world

  2. Great list of travel instagrammers, love the variety. We are @travelers_in_training btw, we are a travel couple that loves helping other travelers by giving them travel tips about experiences we have gone thru during our travels :) , as well as learning from other travelers and their experiences.

  3. I confess that I don’t really get it. The vast majority of these photos are clones of each other with virtually nothing original. I think I will go a bit nuts if I see one more ‘back of girl’s head as she looks over the landscape’, ‘land-rover parked in lonely space’, or ‘girl walks off on path’…… Why are these repeat acts so celebrated? Genuine question. And added to that they only seem to provoke comments of ‘so what but please look at my pictures’. Few thoughtful reflections on what does or doesn’t make them great….

    • Because having a human element draws people into the image, and allows them to imagine themselves there. The same types of images are used for marketing products — this type does very well for outdoors products. While “fashion” photos (think beautiful woman with a European backdrop, probably Paris or Milan) works great for marketing clothing and jewelry.

      It’s been proven to work well at drawing attention — and people follow trends. If it’s working for others, why would you try something else that isn’t? That’s my take at least. People see other succeeding with these kinds of images, so they try to copy the same success. However, feels like it’s starting to get overdone. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the next trend will be?

  4. hello dear friends I really love you all i hope you all fine
    please check out my page I love portrait and travel photography

  5. Hello, I’m Eric Criswell from Memphis, Tennessee and just ran across your post on the top Instagram accounts to follow. I wanted to say great job on those selections. I found some new photographers I was unaware of and appreciate your work on the list. Keep it up!

    Eric Criswell

  6. Thank you for your suggestions and tips.
    Some igers are really masters… by some of them I get so inspired! Especially those with an original style. I hope to get in touch with travelphoto grams. Please, take a look and any feedback is appreciated! @stehanet65

  7. Great Accounts! So much Inspiration! I stareted to Share my pictures as well in Instagram, would be Great to Hear some Feedback from you. My Account: worldtravel.stories Keep up the Great work!

  8. Fantastic selection of photographers. Daniel Kordan is one of my favourites. His edits are just incredible. I also follow many of your other suggestions.

  9. Found a lot of inspiration in these grams, mastered years after years, those photos are taking it to a whole other level, wish one day will be as good as these guys !

    Thanks for sharing with us

  10. Great collection! Maybe you like my account too 😇 would be nice if you are having a look on it ❣️Instagram: worldtravel.stories

  11. Added value. I think lots of pictures are about “selling” a life, rather than communicating thoughts and add value to the whole community. It is in the ideas we find purpose.

  12. I’d love to share my work with all of you! I share my travels and adventures through photography on video on instagram. If you enjoy my photos, feel free to follow @ventureninja

  13. I think I’m following everyone!
    I just made myself an instagram-account with my very own pictures.
    Take a look at @travelerinspo

  14. Nistce list some of these accounts are good, but too many of them use such photoshopped pictures they look totally fake .. it would be nice if people could just share info and pics without all trying to be “influencers” and wannabe travelers


  15. wow I’d love to be on this page, there’s any chance to apply? ;)
    have a look on my Instagram if you fancy to!


  16. hi everyone, i follow all of them because I love travelling. as i am new on IG, i request you to please have a look of my account, feedback is totally appreciated. my username is @justshoot_it_

  17. Hi guys, big fan of the expert vagabond and others on this blog post…so inspired by them I have recently moved to the States and am trying to add interesting content each week…my Instagram is conorwalsh1995…please take a look and any feedback is appreciated! Looking to get connected with fellow travellers!

  18. I’ve been following most of them all the time as I love traveling as well and posting only travel photography on my IG. They all have unique and amazing style in their feed.

  19. I’ve just followed all of these photographers on Instagram :) Can’t wait to see what they post. If anybody fancies checking out my account, its @rivieragoldenglamour

  20. Awesome list and nice blog! I will be sure to follow these accounts. If you have a minute or two please check out my account.. @earthpano and let me know what you think!

  21. Nice list!! I already follow a lot af them, I think my favourite of your selection is @anna.everywhere
    I started my own instagram, you can have a look ;) @abovethemap

  22. Just found this post. Great info.! Just wondering your opinion on the wave of follow-unfollowers on Instagram. I’m getting a bit irritated with the trend as I’m posting my travel pics. How does one even grow anymore with something like this happening? [email protected]

  23. Thanks for those suggestions. Some gems among them. For an interesting feed on travel in Asia with a focus on Bali, you may want to check out @dominikvanyi

  24. Most of these accounts I already follow, but I did find some cool new ones, thanks! If you like the north, you might like my account too it’s: @Fenne.be

  25. Awesome list! Thank you for posting this, I’ve followed all the recommendations and it really brightened up my feed!! A couple of my other favorites are @jacob (amazing, colorful shots), @travel_inhershoes (female solo traveller) and @vitaladventure (nomads on a small sailboat). All are truly inspiring!

  26. Interesting article. Some figures have already changed. I am also trying to promote my page, though it is really small, comparing to this instastars :) my page is travel_and_share

  27. Great article! I personally love the @cleverdever Instagram account. She has a great eye and I love how she shares her passion of travelling…

  28. Hi Matthew,

    I stumbled on this old (well, updated) post, looking for something completely different.
    Firstly thanks, there are some, that I have not seen before.

    But I’m kind of dissapointed, that you have only pointed the big shots, and have not shouted out any of the “beginners”, with considerably smaller follower count (few thoulsands for example), but still with fantastic content. There literally thoulsands of accounts, some of theme even with better content than few here, no offence to anybody. :)

    I understand, your list is subjective, but still :) Thanks.

  29. Wow, this article has truly inspired me. I indeed followed your page, and the list of the others were simply magical. I felt like I embarked on a mini trip of my own in their lenses. I am an aspiring newbie.. so I would hope one day to leave a mark on the world such as all you talented people do. I have my Personal account @Liononyourgirl on IG and my new travel page @rytravels that I hope can soon take off and start the journey of my own. I would love to hear feedback from all who read this, and I will certainly follow you guys and love to see what you have to show :)

  30. Hey really great post, im also into travelling myself, im from Argentina and would be Happy if anybody want to follow me @manolec95

    • Awesome! Argentina is beautiful! I most definitely Am following you!! :)I am new to photography and wish to take it with me on my travels as well.

  31. Great list! I follow a lot of them and they provide quality content.
    Always fun to go through their feed and get some inspiration to create beautiful travel pictures for my account @pj_decoster

  32. Great website and Instagram! Very inspiring. Every time I stumble across a new blogger means I have more education of the world and all its beauty!

  33. Great post! Just followed a great deal of those featured in the article and from the comment section. I’d also like to add @craighowes – a personal favorite.

  34. Thanks for sharing this post, there are so many great photos we don’t know where to begin with the compliments!!

    Reading about your exciting travels has inspired us to create our very own site, which we have named The Secret Lodge. We hope to share posts as amazing as yours in due time. For now, you’re more than welcome to follow us on Instagram @thesecretlodge

  35. Check out 20 years of adventure travel photography from 5 continents and 38 countries: Author and photographer Marc Pagani @marcpagani

  36. Great recos! I love Deb + Dave too — amazing people with some incredible stories. I also share travel photos (only my own) on @curious_mag to inspire people to get out and see the world!

  37. Thanks for the listing! I guess you have taken quite some time to do the screenshots the photographers’ Instagram profiles. Neat work!

  38. We are just starting out with our Instagram account but we have some great pics to share from all our recent and past travels! We would love you to check us out and if you like what you see please follow us @lastminutedetours

  39. I run more of a tropical account the features me traveling to beautiful countries and islands. Check me out on instagram!! @nicolenorvell :)

  40. A great list, I would like to be in the places of those photos. because you have to live it to understand well the photos. if they wish can visit me on instagram with @iletours

  41. Nice recommendations ! I already follow few of them.
    If you’d like to see nice pictures of Europe check @adritravel !

  42. This is a great list! Most we are following at @peanutsorpretzels, but there are some news ones as well.

    Thanks for sharing!


  43. Thanks for that. Just what I needed. I’m new to Instagram, so It was good to see the high level of images being made by others. Cheers.

  44. I follow smaller ones like @kunzum

    They post some of the interesting videos and photos about travel. Have been following other travel photographers too, but this one is very different. They are a travel magazine and blog too, and their posts provide unique information on the places visited.

  45. Hey there! Great list but I would certainly add smaller accounts…I feel more engaged! I’ve recently discovered a very inspiring travel girl @marinacomes She replies to everybody who leaves a comment!!

  46. Really good list! I had been following most of these already, just added you to my list!!
    Just wanted to add that next to the ‘big’ travel Instagram accounts I really enjoy smaller ones as well such as: mauria14, gipsytraveller1 and sojoti
    Or anyone under 5000 followers with good posts… With the small ones I feel really involved for some reason :)

  47. Great list! Check out Josh’s work when you have a chance. He just passed 20k followers and I may be a little bias, but I think his shots are amazing!

    @worldofwanderlust – Full time traveler. Her account is more inspirational for young girls to travel. She posts lots of fun vlogs also.

  60. Great list, Matt!
    It’s not easy to find accounts which are different with great content.

  71. Hey guys, I’m a travel blogger from Melbourne Australia! im looking for some advise on places to travel in Europe and new followers who are willing to give me some advise on my Instagram.
    My Instagram name is @spiritualtraveller


  72. Wow. I am now following all of these travel grammers! Such inspiring stuff. One not mentioned that is WELL worth a look is @world.in.hd

  73. Awesome list. Thanks Matt! It’s my mission to get on one of these lists this year :) Instagram is by far my favourite social media.

  74. Thanks for sharing. Yours is nice too, I’m following you on Instagram. We are a Tibetan family of 4 traveling globally, you can check us out @thinlet1.

  75. Hey Matthew, thanks for the great post! It is so hard to find the right instagrammers to follow an you got them all in one spot! I’m new to travel photography (just launched my first travel blog) and am so excited to learn more. These photos are so incredibly inspiring, thanks for such a great list of photographers!

  76. Since there are lots of recommendation on more people to follow, here is another one on IG : TheLandOfSnows
    This guy has worked 13 years in Tibet and has the most amazing pictures about the Himalayan Kingdom.

  77. What a great list! Was following some of these accounts already, but some of the new ones are incredible! You are a great source of inspiration, all of you. Check out my travel account @joeredtravel ! Muchas gracias :)

  78. Trying to catch up to you guys. Some truly amazing photographs. Hope to run into anyone of you on our journeys.

    Godspeed and safe travels!

  79. Oh what a treat this is! Instagram is the most wonderful social medium out there. Would love to connect @paper.boats.

  80. Some nice accounts here and certainly talented photographers I follow myself, but forgive my honesty, these round up lists that pop up around the net from time to time seem to always list the same groups. It’s really nothing new and perhaps featuring new people could keep things fresh and support a growing set of new, up-and-coming talent. Just my two cents.

  81. Thank you for this, there were plenty new ones in here for me… oh, and muchas gracias for including me :-)

  82. I really thought I’d logged in and thanked you for featuring me, Matt. But belated thanks!! It always means a lot to me when people connect with my Instagram account since that’s my favorite social media channel of them all ;) And it’s always nice to be featured alongside some of my personal favorites (like @WheresAndrew!)

    Hope you’re doing well wherever you are in the world currently!!

  83. Hey Matt, I recently found your blog and inspired me to start blogging about short trips that I’ve done with my girlfriend. Anyway thanks for the inspiration on instagram.

  84. I follow quite a few of those people, but need to add some more :) great list! My two favorites are Liz and Alex. (PS I i have an instagram @hippieinheelsblog) Thanks for sharing!

  85. Such a great list. Of course, there’s one amazing account missing (MINE) but I forgive you :-) I love Kirsten Alana, Daniel Nahabedian as well as Dan & Audrey’s accounts.

  86. I am obsessed with Instagram and try to post a snap from my travels every day as well as follow helps of great photographers. I follow most of your list above already but will definately be adding the ones I don’t already. If I had to pick a favourite it would be Brendan van Son and Young Adventuress. Both have incredible photos that inspire me to be a better photographer.

  87. Thanks for the mention Matt! I love reading these types of lists because they always mention a few people I have yet to discover on IG. I’m looking forward to following Michael Christopher Brown, Foster Hunting, etc.
