10 National tourism profiles on Instagram that will make you wanna travel to Europe
Instragram is an amazing tool to make you dream away to new and exciting destinations – or to share your own trips and experiences with your followers. Most National tourism offices have discovered the power of visual inspiration, and many of them shares high quality photos to push you into that plane, car, bus or train – on your way to new adventures. Here are 10 National tourism profiles I love, from countries around Europe.
Enchanting photos of northern lights, snow covered pine trees and beautiful reindeer. Visit Finland’s official Instagram account will tempt you to jump on a plane to Helsinki and head north. High quality photos following the seaons. 243.000 followers.
Wales’ official instagram account is a wonderful buffet of rough, mountainous landscapes, rustic castles and incredible coastlines. A small nation with lots to offer for any nature lover. Atmospheric photos with a touch of mystery. 79.000 followers.
Spain is much more than Barcelona and sandy beaches, and their official tourism instagram does a good job showing this through shots of historic cities, towering cathedrals, blue oceans and modern architecture. 312.000 followers.
The alpine country of Switzerland is extremely photogenic and therefore Instagram is a the perfect place to show off some Swiss magic. Icy glaciers, snowclad mountain peaks, flower adorned chalets and panoramic trains are among the highlights here. 276.000 followers.
Dear Winter, you've been A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! So much snow! Soooo much snow! Wow! As a result, several ski resorts are open until the end of May! The end of May! Great, don’t you think? With spring patiently waiting in the wings, we thought we’d share one last winter photo with you. At least for now. What was your best winter experience in Switzerland? Comment 👆🏼. Thanks for the photo, @benjaminsavary
Go Visit Denmark
My Scandinavian home country of Denmark is represented by the people when it comes to the tourism office’s Instagram profile – with hand-picked photos from followers using #visitdenmark. This gives a lovely mix of city life, old towns, nordic beaches and of course “hygge”. 165.000 followers.
