Today’s Instagrammers don’t just “post a picture”. We love to select carefully every little detail such as lighting, background, props, makeup, hair, outfit and of course, flattering angles.
If you’ve mastered this art of taking great Insta-worthy pictures, or you just want to step up your social media game, keep on reading. We’ve collected the most Instagrammable locations in the world, so there’s no excuse for not having a next gorgeous post!
1- Canyonlands National Park, Utah:
A lifetime of exploration awaits you in Utah’s Canyonlands, where you can view the entire park as one dramatic sculpture with fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries.
It’s a three-dimensional playground of smooth rock, narrow canyons, hidden meadows, twin rivers, wildflower gardens, and otherworldly colors.
Every area of the Canyonlands National Park features a desert atmosphere and a mix of brownish and red tones that set the perfect background and lighting for your next selfie.
2- Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada:
The largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, Jasper, is wild in every sense of the word. It’s internationally renowned for hiking in the park, skiing at Marmot Basin, and wildlife viewing.
The striking cornflower blue water of the Athabasca River runs through Alberta, carving a path between rugged canyons and inviting explorers, hikers, and Instagrammers.
Jasper is home to some of North America’s rarest animals, including healthy populations of grizzly bears, wolves, caribou, and moose. So you could capture lots of unexpected photos of nature and wildlife.
3- Seljalandsfoss, Iceland:
Seljalandsfoss is one of the best-known waterfalls in Iceland. It is 65 meters high, and it is breathtakingly beautiful.
A path leads you to the waterfall, and you could even catch a rainbow! Now stop and tell us how could you get a more jaw-dropping picture than this?
You’ll love the mesmerizing feeling of sitting by a waterfall and have to tear yourself away from them.
4- Torres del Paine National Park, Chile:
This protected land in the Patagonia region is a mix of mountains, glaciers, forests, and lakes. And it was stated as Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO.
To fully experience this rugged and beautiful landscape, you’ll have to choose methods other than walking, including driving, horseback riding, hiking, and boating. The views and pictures you’ll be able to capture are unparalleled.
Pro tip: Visit during Chile’s summer (our winter) since the sun doesn’t set on the soaring granite pillars until after 10 p.m.
5- Engadine Valley, Switzerland:
Imagine a mountain landscape speckled with rustic villages whose residents speak an ancient, isolated language. Centuries-old stone dwellings with mysterious renderings of wild men and mountain goats are etched into white facades.
This place actually exists! And it’s Switzerland’s Lower Engadine, a remote valley that has been drawing visitors for more than three centuries.
The Engadine is all about nature. Except for St. Moritz in the Upper Engadine, there are hardly any larger towns and no cities at all. Good weather is a prerequisite! If you love the Alps and want to get a bit off the tourist trail, the Lower Engadine is worth your consideration.
6- Mount Roraima, Venezuela:
It might look like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie, but this natural wonder is completely real and fully awe-inspiring.
The mountains of the Roraima are considered to be some of the oldest geological formation known, and it has some of the highest waterfalls in the world.
Climb it if you can, and the reward from the top will reveal a panorama of clouds of other mesas and savanna pastures.
7- Uyuni Salt Flats, Bolivia:
Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is considered one of the most extreme and remarkable views in all of South America, if not Earth. This area is covered by bright-white salt formations that give the illusion of walking in the clouds.
Many say the Uyuni Salt Flats are a photographer’s dream, so of course, it has to be the Instagrammer’s dream also.
Playing with reflections, light, and the breathtaking mirror effect is a dream subject to photograph. Definitely a visual feast like no other.
8- Milford Sound, New Zealand:
You might recognize the jaw-dropping landscape from The Lord of the Rings at New Zealand’s most stunning natural attraction situated on the west coast of the South Island, the Milford Sound.
With its magical combination of mountain peaks, ink-dark waters and superb dramatic forest-clad cliffs, it must be seen to be believed.
You can take boat cruisers, head out sea kayaking, diving or flightseeing. Whatever you do, you’ll capture a fusion of spectacular natural features with amazing visuals cues around every corner.
9- Mount Fuji, Japan:
Japan’s highest mountain has a reverent status in Japanese culture, as it is believed to be the country’s holiest mountain. This active volcano has experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries.
During springtime, cherry blossoms light up the five lakes surrounding the sacred symbol of Japan, the Mount Fuji.
The best view of the mountain can be enjoyed from the train on a trip between Tokyo and Osaka. Or you can climb it during July and August to capture photos of all the experience.
10- Oia, Greece:
Santorini erupts with charm. A volcano embraced by the Aegean, this island-phenomenon in the Cyclades gives its visitors a mythical experience.
The island’s most famous village is Oia, where narrow, hilly streets lined with whitewashed houses and pink bougainvillea lead to the cobalt Aegean Sea.
If you want to capture incredible views, you should head to the balcony of Santorini, Oia, and be amazed by the peaceful villages and the vineyards.
