We wanted to know the best places in the world for summer travel, so we asked our favorite travel Instagram girls with all the experience and the best taste.
This is the first in our travel inspiration series with these amazing instagrammers, so stay tuned!
For me, Europe comes alive in the summer time! I love to visit beachy spots like Santorini or Zakynthos in Greece, cultural hubs in Italy like Florence or Venice, Granada or Cordoba in the south of Spain for delicious food and historical experiences, and then go off the beaten track a bit to places like the Albanian Riviera in Albania which is home to stunning beaches and crystal clear waters, or the coast of Montenegro.
Our five favorite summer destinations are Kenya for the Great Migration, the Maldives to relax on the beach, New Zealand for a taste of winter and adventure, Peru to hike Machu Picchu, and Utah for all of the National Parks and hikes.
I love outdoors and adventure, but not always prefer the heat. During summer, I try to escape the crowds and choose the destinations, that are less visited. It also depends on the climate and the weather in the particular location, so I try to adjust my trips accordingly.
Some of the examples of my favorite, less known summer destinations, are Georgia (the country, not the state), Madagascar, Lofoten islands in Norway, Ladakh region in India with Himalayan mountains, and Indonesia.
Mallorca & Menorca because the beaches are simply unbeatable! Those islands are a dream! Next is Berlin which has got to be the best city in the world in summertime. So many open airs and events happening 24/7! Another island that makes the list is Capri as it’s the perfect lux getaway in summer, and a place to see and be seen! Lastly, I would say all of Portugal. The coastline of that country is so beautiful and I feel like the country is made for summer.
