My Favourite Canadian Female Instagram Accounts

When asked what my favourite social media platform is I respond without a hesitation – Instagram! For me Instagram is about beautiful photos, discovering new places, sharing incredible memories, and so much more. And in celebration of Canada’s 150th this year I’ve compiled a list of my favourite Canadian female Instagram accounts. Not only will these ladies inspire you to visit our awesome country, but also further afield, and many will have you getting outdoors to relish in our beautiful natural world.

Top 10 Canadian Female Instagram Accounts to Inspire Travel & Getting Outdoors

1. @ibbtravel – Lindsay from I’ve Been Bit is a certifiable “Waterfall Chaser” and loves outdoor adventures, especially in her own backyard of Ontario! Her photos will inspire you to fall in love with outdoor winter activities and exploring this beautiful country of ours. She’s been from coast to coast across Canada, and even across Europe and beyond.

2. @justinpluslauren – Lauren from Justin Plus Lauren also loves the outdoors, but is happy exploring cities too. And always on the hunt for the next best Vegan restaurant! Her photos will inspire you to get out and explore this wondrous world of ours, from adventures on the Ring Road in Iceland to hiking in her own backyard of Ontario, and enjoying Caribbean sunsets.

3. @hannahlogan21 – Hannah from Eat Sleep Breathe Travel is the one to keep you laughing with her (mis)adventures but inspire you to be true to yourself and love your body in what ever shape it is. She’s a storyteller, curvy, body positive role model and in a love affair with South East Asia. While she travels solo that doesn’t mean she’s alone as she easily finds friends wherever she goes. While she lives in Ottawa, Ontario, her heart is definitely a global citizen.

Bonus: @theworldasiseeit_travelblog Of course me! Confessed nature nut, animal lover who’s obsessed with hiking and travel! And might have a slight love affair with Europe. From exploring the natural beauty and charming towns in my own backyard of Ontario to jet-setting solo across Europe, I hope I can inspire you to get out and explore!

And in case you didn’t know, I run a feature every Friday on my The World As I See It – travel blog Instagram account. I share photos from women across the globe who are fellow nature nuts. So, don’t forget to use the hashtag #WomenSeekingNature on your photos for your chance to be featured on my account. You don’t have to be a travel blogger, nor have a lot of followers. I just want to share great photos of great women getting outdoors.

Do you have some amazing photos of you out exploring the wilds of nature? Maybe one of you after a long hike and enjoying the view. Then use the hashtag #WomenSeekingNature on your photo and yours might be the next feature!
