Most followed travel influencers on Instagram

The accounts of the most popular travel influencers on Instagram not only inspire us when choosing our next getaway, but they also confirm what you already suspected: wanting to be one of them.

Currently, there are three generalized opinions regarding travel influencers:

  • Talentless lifers
  • Content creators that are liked
  • People who inspire us to follow our dreams

In the third case, the thing has changed during those recent years and it is the Instagrammers themselves who assure that, after those dinners in the Maldives and sponsored posts, there is enormous work and doses of effort, patience and travel, many trips.

We bring you the most popular travel influencer accounts to discover new destinations and even find your own voice. It will be great for you if you decide to immerse yourself in our Master in Travel Journalism.
