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

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.
Cathy – Mummy Travels
Beaches worldwide are a favourite but Cathy and her daughter love to chase blue skies around the world. From cities to countryside to coast, her feed is full of bright colours and travel inspiration.

Claire – Tin Box Traveller
Claire fills her grid with moments captured during her travels and family adventures in the UK and Europe. There’s also a good helping of fun at home in goregous Devon in the South West of England. The cheeky smiles of her two daughters, aged five and three feature a lot, but Claire is also partial to an epic view.
Anna – Born Voyage
Anna has three kids and her IG feed is packed with pics of anything from days out, to festivals, to camper van road trips! I loved following their six week trip around Europe this summer, and they inspired me to add a few new destinations to my bucket list! Follow Anna’s hashtag #borntovoyage for even more inspiration!
