Who to Follow for Family Travel Inspiration on Instagram

Who to Follow for Family Travel Inspiration on Instagram

If you’re looking for family travel inspiration on Instagram, read on for my favourite accounts. 

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with instagram; I’m not a massive fan of the over staged and set up shots that seem to flood some grids with a very tenuous link to somehow promoting a mouth wash brand or some such! 

But I DO love instagram for the genuine and inspirational accounts, especially those of other family travel bloggers. Now, they may fill me with massive travel envy, especially when I’m sat at home, but they also provide a great deal of travel inspiration. I try to keep my own account as genuine as possible 

So, if you’re looking for ideas of where to head on your next family-friendly holiday, or if you’re toying with the idea of heading somewhere perhaps a bit off the beaten track and need to see other families taking it on to give you a sense of “if they can do it, we totally can too!” then read on to discover some awesome family travel accounts on Insta:

Jenny – Travelynn Family 

Jenny and her family aim to push the boundaires of family travel and dispel the myth that adventure needs to wait until the kids are older (her boys are aged 3 and 4). I am constantly in awe of their travels, and of their stunning pictures. On her grid find inspiration from their epic African roadtrip, adventures through Asia (particuarly India), with a bit of Peak District (their new home) for good measure.

A good sign that your little ones are absolutely fine at altitude… Running around playing 👬 We took it super SUPER slow and we weren't above 3000m for long, so these two were absolutely fine. .. This was the view from the top of #poonhill, but we still had two days to get ourselves back down 🙈. .. .. .. #Ghorepani #nepalisbeautiful #nepalnow #himalayas #Nepal #fearlessfamtrav #travelkids #takeyourkidseverywhere #travelmadfam #topoftheworld #mountainviews #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #lpkids #lppathfinders #lpfanphoto #familytravel #ukblogger #pblogger #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #freespiritedchildhood #getoutside #pottyadventures #adventureparenting #worldschooling #parentswhowander #travelwithkids #wanderlustkids

Susanna – A Modern Mother

Susanna ‘s Instagram is full of travel inspiration for families with teens. From California to Cornwall and everywhere in between.

Chloe – Sorry About the Mess

Nell – The Pigeon Pair and Me

Nell has an eye for the scenic and beautiful. She prefers landscapes to family snaps, but you might just catch the occasional picture of her eight- and six-year old sneaking into her feed.

Urquhart Castle is in a fairytale location, on the banks of Loch Ness. But the beautiful ruins hide a bloody past. On our Rebellion Tour with Loch Ness by Jacobite, we learned how the castle saw battles between Scots and English, Royalists and Jacobites. You’d never have guessed that from the peaceful, beautiful views, though. Our tour gave us a two-hour window to explore the towers, dungeons and grassy banks of the castle before we sailed back to Dochgarroch Lock. The time just flew by. #ad #presstrip . . . . . #urquhartcastle #lochness #MoreThanAMonster #scotland #visitscotland #lovescotland #scotlandisnow #YOYP2018 #travel #familytravel #guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #culturetrip #ukexplore #ukftb #ftb100 #wanderlust #travelmore #highlands #scottishhighlands #familytravelblogger #parentbloggersuk #snaphappybritmums #traveltheworld #culturedkids #travelwithkids #travelblogger #historicscotland

M E M O R I E S – I’m still clinging on to every last minute of the holidays – I’ve loved having all three of my babies at home – it’s been a little crazy at times and the adults are slightly frazzled (including the grandparents 😉) but I wouldn’t change a thing!} We enjoyed a fab #coastaladventure last weekend, an opportunity to enjoy the Cornish Coast before the chaos of the school run starts next week (ad). Anyone else holding on to the summer holidays with both hands? . .

A day trip to Venice, Italy, with a five and three-year-old in August…were we crazy? I’m currently writing a thesis, I mean blog post, on the topic. I’m hoping to answer important questions like: what can you see in seven hours; did the kids enjoy it; and how much prosecco did I drink once the kids were finally in bed? Is there anything you’d like to know? 😂 🇮🇹 😂 🇮🇹 #LoveItaly #lakegardaitaly #italy_ig #italygram #Explorerkids #tinytravels #curiouslittleexplorers #travelwithkids #snaphappybritmums #lpkids #ftb100 #travelmomentswithkids #travelmadfam #ukftb #welovetravel #exploretheworld #wearetravelmums #beautifuldestinations #wetravelgirls #familytravel #trips100 #realfamilytravel #devonbloggers #igersdevon

One week ago today in beautiful Cadaqués.☝🏻 Seems bonkers when the past two days have been spent searching for PE kits (scrunched up and still unwashed from last term. 🤦🏼‍♀️), washing (seven loads and counting) and trying to work out what to do with all this new found space (total squash and a squeeze moment right there. 🐖🐄👵🏼😂) Still, the trio were happily deposited back to their various educational establishments today and whilst I couldn’t wait for their end of day nuggles, I’m not gonna lie… my child-free mooch round town and lunch with my folks was pretty good too! #somethingformeinseptember How’s everyone else going with the back to school fun? Jumping for joy or sobbing into your latte?! #borntovoyage #bornvoyagedoeseurope #cadaques #costabrava #catalonia

Wow… I can’t quite believe this is our last day here. We’ve managed a good mix of exploration, relaxing and family time. But a week is never enough is it? From watching turtles hatching to snorkelling in the clearest blue waters, I’m sad our time at Periyali Villas is ending. But we have so many happy memories and I totally get why there are so many repeat visitors. We may be leaving tomorrow but I’ll be sharing more photos and writing lots about our time with @simpsontravel over the coming weeks. 🇬🇷 Thanks for following our journey… . . . #greece #greekislands #sea #beach #beachlife #familytravel #familytrip #familyvaca #familyvacation #traveltagged #lovegreece #hosted #coast #passionpassport #kidswhotravel #travelwithkids #travelkids #lazyday #family #familyfuntime #zakynthos

Do you get the post holiday blues? We’ve only been back in the UK a few days and I’m already longing for Greek island idylls like this gorgeous harbour at Heronissis on the island of Sifnos. We spent hours here – reading on the beach, taking photos and eating a seafood lunch overlooking the water. It all seems a long time ago now. I haven’t picked up a book since I finished Arundhati Roy’s brilliant new novel in the airport departure lounge. I’ve spent the last few days shopping for new school uniforms, pencil cases and school shoes and trying to get two weeks of holiday washing dry in between the rain showers. On the plus side, one of the boys has decided he needs to make a Death by Chocolate cake so provided he doesn’t cause too much destruction in the kitchen, the day should end well… @youareheresifnos @visitgreecegr @discover.greece @cyclades_islands @beautifulcyclades #ttot

She’s just as likely to share trips from far-flung lands as she is days out in London and is a firm believer that you can – and should! – take your kids everywhere.

Great day out today with friends at @sundown.adventureland . I only heard of this place recently despite it being 50 years old! (and it’s only 50 minutes from where I live.) It’s a theme park for under 10’s which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Each area has a theme from the Wild West, to Robin Hood, Toy Town, Pirates, Fairytales and so much more (including amazing play areas!) We paid for this ourselves and thought it was pretty good value. The new Safari drive (kids get to drive their own car with simple stop and go pedals) was a huge hit as was the fairytale village. Lots of interactive things to do which made familiar tales come alive!

I can't believe it's already been three years since our round the world trip 😫 Our first port of call was Florida where we spent a month discovering that there's a whole more to the sunshine state than Orlando, including the utterly beautiful (and empty!) St Joseph's peninsula (pictured) and Manatee Springs 😍 Have you been to Florida's less known spots? Which was your favourite? . . . . . . #childhoodunplugged #ukftb #traveldeeper #suitcasetravels #lonelyplanet #abmlifeisbeautiful #abmtravelbug #passionpassport #instatravel #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #travelstoke #passportready #beautifuldestinations #travelmore #beautifulplacesonearth #livetravelchannel #travelphotography #tbin #ftb100 #travelblogger #familytravelblogger#florida

    Thank you for this post Daisy! 😊 I have been through the list and followed all those I wasn’t already following. I do have a soft spot for Instagram, but it’s often difficult to find genuine, decent accounts to follow, so thank you! As a relatively new blogger in comparison, the ones I already follow from the above list have already filled me with inspiration so I am looking forward to learning more about the others too! Will be hooking up to #MondayEscapes later as well! 😊
