Sublime vistas, natural wonders, and a rich, characterful historical heritage. Canada’s kaleidoscopic environment and captivating cultural scenario make this one of the most photogenic places in the world. Where, and when, to catch Instagram-worthy shots? Your best bet is wintertime, because snow definitely lends itself to snaps that are nothing short of incredible.
Where to go largely depends on what you want to experience (and post!), but our favorite must-shoots definitely include:
• The Banff National Park, an iconically Canadian winter wonderland showcasing majestic snow-clad trees, mountains, and lakes filled with gently floating ice islands. A truly superb location for Instagram.
• UNESCO-listed Rideau Canal, the world’s largest skating rink! Walking along the Mackenzie King Bridge, facing north, you’ll be able to capture fabulous pics with Parliament Hill in the background, and the hundreds of skaters below that create the impression of Christmas marionettes.
• Vieux-Québec, with its cobble-paved walkways framed by Christmas lights and gleaming decorations, the garland-bedecked cinnamon-scented German Christmas Market, and Place-Royale enhance by a mammoth evergreen.
A stunning archipelago comprising over a thousand coral islands, each immersed in crystal-clear lagoons. The Maldive Islands, a superbly resplendent chain of 27 atolls that covers approximately 90,000 square kilometers, are a wonder-filled oasis. A real paradise for travelers seeking unrivaled locations for Instagram!
Plus, because more or less 200 islands are inhabited, and about half of these host sensational luxury resorts, the whole archipelago is a haven of astounding photo opportunities. Practically everything you see, and photograph, is bound to get you thousands of likes, but you can make the most of your vacation, and improve your feed, including day trips to Niyama, Angsana Velavaru, Laamu and Malè.

Dazzling beaches, evocative country views, and genuine character. The painter Mirò used to say that Mallorca was “pure Mediterranean light”, and indeed more or less everything you see and experience in Mallorca is eye-catching, soulful and fascinating. From the golden-hued villages and hilltop monasteries to the Serra de Tramuntana’s daunting peaks, every single Mallorcan vista is filled with extraordinary personality and simply perfect for your feed.
Beaches aside, the extraordinary countryside, with its time-honored fincas, silvery olive trees, and graceful quietness, is probably the island’s most Instagram-worthy feature. Plus, there are village fiestas that light up the summer nights and give you the chance to capture pics of passionate dancers surrounded by old-world charm.

Norway and the Northern Lights
Longing to see the Northern Lights dancing their way through the sky, and post dazzling portraits of this astounding natural miracle? Well, season and destination are both equally vital, so first and foremost make sure you book your trip between November and March, when the nights are longest, and you’ll have a better chance of getting to see them often.
Secondly, you will need to be as close as possible to the ‘Northern Lights Belt’, i.e. between 65 and 72 degrees north in latitude, immediately inside the Arctic Circle, hence the best Northern European country to travel to for sighting of the mesmerizing Northern Lights is Norway and, specifically, the following top locations:
• The Lofoten Islands
• North Cape (Nordkapp), one of the world’s most aesthetic places
Traveler’s Tip: Wherever you choose to go, always check the weather forecast, never use your flash and… wear warm clothes, you’re in the Arctic!
The Amazon jungle, with its ancestral heritage, amazing rainforest and extraordinary wildlife. The Andean trails, Inca ruins, and colorful markets. Not to mention Patagonia and its dramatic glaciers, the Iguazú waterfalls, and the plains of Argentina. The whole of South America is a wildly exciting and boldly stimulating haven of wonders, and it takes well more than one only journey to uncover and explore it all.
Instagrammability is no doubt guaranteed, but there are a lot of South America photos out there already, so how can you wow your followers? Focus on a theme, or topic, and travel through the countries of South American capturing your “lead character” at its best in each.
Need a cue? Flora and fauna both offer excellent material for an Instagram-worthy South American journey.
If you focus on flowers and trees, you can explore the Amazon, and get amazing snaps of its incredible flowers, such as wild orchid, passionflower, giant water lilies, and cacao plants, as well as of its palm trees and marvelous nut trees. Then move on to Peru, and capture the Machu Picchu bamboo, lilies, Peruvian sundew and Peruvian wild tomato flowers.
If you’re more into wildlife, you could start off following the footsteps of Argentinian animals, such as penguins, flamingos, and whales, then travel to Ecuador to meet the birds, monkeys, jaguars, armadillos, and ant-eaters that live in the Amazon. Top it off with an unforgettable Galapagos experience, and let your followers gape at your shots of iguanas.
Traveler’s Tip: the best way to appreciate Galapagos is no doubt a cruise, and this memorable one allows you to admire the wildlife with the knowledgeable assistance of a naturalistic guide.
