Instagram is a powerful social media tool for bloggers and non-bloggers. And travelers are a huge part of the reason Instagram's become so popular. Amazing images of pristine beaches, ancient temples, and beautiful cityscapes are changing the way people travel. But connecting with friendly travelers who post authentic travel content is becoming more difficult as the Gram becomes more saturated with travel images. Luckily, there are super cool IG communities where you can connect with like-minded people. Here are the best Instagram travel communities that any traveler can join!

Instagram is one of my favorite social media platforms, probably because of the emphasis on photography. Not only is Instagram a great place to find travel inspiration, it's also a wonderful community where you can meet like-minded people. In the past, I've hosted travel challenges (remember the #IGTravelChallenge?), but lately I've been focused on participating in travel communities that support everyday explorers.
Instagram Travel Communities You Should Join
I've really been impressed with the growing emphasis on community over competition on Instagram. Unfortunately, the social media platform is plagued by comparison, unrealistic portrayals of travel, and over-sexualized images. But there are travel 'grammers out there helping to take Instagram back! Here are my favorite travel tribes you can use to connect with real travelers!
