100 Fantastic Instagram Accounts for Travelers to Follow

Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

Margaret Lee

Everybody loves traveling, but we can’t always afford to go everywhere we want. There is no better way to travel the world than through photography. While Instagram might be often known by its food photos and other iPhone photography clichés, this awesome application allows you to see the parts of the world you might never get to see.


Moreover, your phone camera is always with you, no matter if you’re conquering a mountain peak or diving to the bottom of the ocean. You can use Instagram for posting your own travel photos and following other travelers to get some ideas where to spend your next vacation. So here I put together 100 truly fantastic Instagram accounts for travelers to follow.
