Everyone has their bucket list of places to visit and things to do. But in this day and age, when it’s so easy to get caught up in your everyday life, there never seems to be enough time for it all. That’s why we decided to compile a list of the best Instagrams to revel in wanderlust and vicariously enjoy these adventures....and let these inspire a (real life) vacation of your own! 

Luke Shadbolt

Luke Shadbolt, asides from being a professional surfer, is also an incredibly gifted photographer. Given his background, the beach and surf images are definitely a highlight if you want to channel those summer vibes. 

Scott Hansen

Scott Hansen, yes, as in Scott Hansen from the ambient band Tycho, is apparently a man of many talents. When he’s not busy touring, Hansen documents his dream-like adventures through nature. 

Molly Steele

Molly Steele is a girl after our own heart. She has a knack for adventure and captures it all on instagram, giving us a lens into her picturesque life.

Foster Huntington

Foster Huntington is a true free spirit, he enjoys surfing, camping, and the great outdoors. An instagram that would make Jack Kerouac proud. 

Kevin Russ

Kevin Russ has gone into the wild. His photos will make you want to ditch the beach and head to the mountains!

Meg Steel

A self-proclaimed “Pacific Northwest forest nymph”, Meg Steel really makes the forest look like a magical place we could only get to in our dreams. 

Kirsten Alana 

Kirsten Alana takes us on a trip around the world. Her posts give insight into different aspects of traveling, ranging from food to cultural icons to nightlife, and usually include educational blurbs about the places she covers!

Carin Olsson   

Carin Olsson truly lives “la vie en rose”. Her photos document the charm that only a place like Paris could inspire. 

Mattias Tyllander  

Mattias Tyllander is a Swedish photographer whose attention to color is really a visual treat.

Adam Senatori

Being a pilot allows Adam Senatori to give us a bird’s eye view of some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
