Youtube’s Top Travel Vloggers

Top-Travel-VloggersUPDATED and EXPANDED for 2016 

Over the years I have come across many fantastic content creators via youtube, in my travels, and at events. So I thought I would put together this list to showcase the very best to you in hopes you find some more inspiring, educational and entertaining travel content to watch.

I am all about sharing the love and introducing you to all these wonderful travel videographers/ travel video bloggers. Some have massive audiences, others are still building, all produce great videos.

These creators all take a very first person approach to story telling and their travel videos. Also, they regularly upload, since there are plenty of viral travel videos and some beautiful travel videographers, but they post infrequently.

    I have seen Louis a few times in other peoples videos, and kind of thought I would not really like this guy much. However a few weeks back at the end of the Mexico trip when he gave you a big hug, I thought this guy can’t be all bad, so I started watching his videos. Now I am subscribed and I am definitely a FunForLouis fan. So good of you to give a big shout out to effectively your rivals for YT views. Still waiting for your 2 a week, yeah I know, that’s how Nadine is, but I have learned to live with it. lol

    I’ve heard of most of these creators, and I’m excited to start watching some new creators! I found sixpennyglobe a while ago, but unfortunately they stopped posting and I’m not sure what happened to them.

    My friend Laura has a small youtube channel and I think she is good enough to be included on this list, but it’s difficult for small youtubers to be recognized when there are so many people creating amazing content.

    Hey Nadine, you are promoting a group of Canadian guys (High on Life) that has been destroying US National Parks and National Landmarks as well as doing the same in other parts of the world. Please remove them from.this list.
    Thank you.

      Absolutely!! Promoting their illegal and shamelessly destructive acts is disgusting. I can’t believe a fellow traveller and lover of the magnificent natural sights could support such a reckless group. It’s very sad and frustrating to see.

    Nadine, Can you update this and remove High on Life? They destroyed a number of sensitive habitats in the US, have warrants for their arrest and are still under investigation for damage in several US Parks. There are several better examples of what to do suggested in your comments and should easily replace these bad examples. Travel and enjoy the world… leave no marks.

    Hey Nadine- I am disappointed in your choice to highlight High on Life. If you google High on Life, you will find way more about their destruction than their fun loving give a care attitude about travel and adventure. From Machu Picchu in Peru to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming/Montana to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, I could go on, because there are MORE places they have damaged. I have grown up in Wyoming and love where I live and it saddens me that people think that to get a great picture or to get notoriety that they can be so disrespectful to nature and one another. Please remove them from your site. Thank you.

      And don’t forget climbing on a Holocaust memorial in Europe. I hope Nadine will update this blog and remove them. They are NOT worthy of followers or any positive attention.
