Instagram is a wonderful source of inspiration. I often plan trips to places that I discover through Instagram and social media.

This post is dedicated to showcasing some of the best travel photographers that post pictures from all over the world. Consider following or visiting these photographers for ideas on where to go for your next trip, or if you just want to check out some beautiful pictures.

So let’s get started on the best travel photographers to follow:

2. @nodestinations

Another very talented couple, Chris and Danika are always travelling and share pictures from all around the world. Their pictures are very high quality and beautiful. I often want to jump on a plane after seeing the destinations they share.

Great destination hubs

Hubs are accounts that feature other peoples photographs with credit to the original artist. Here are a few of my favourite Global Instagram hubs.

  1. travelanddestinations – A hub featuring high-quality images from city to landscape.
  2. bestcitybreaks  Beautiful city images showing some of the best cities to visit.
  3. beautifuldestinations – One of the largest travel hubs on Instagram featuring different places daily.
  4. passionpassport – This Instagram hub features images but each image comes with a story.
