The Best Youtube Channels To Watch For Travel Inspiration in 2022


Travel inspiration on YouTube is an ever-evolving thing. Every year fresh faces pop up with their own unique style, either showcasing exotic locations with cinematic montages or with their own distinctive way of storytelling.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve accumulated a collection of Youtube channels that I like to keep an eye on to help inspire new travel destinations, and 2022 will be no different.

With the world slowly returning to normal and international travel opening back up, I’ve updated this list with a bunch of new fresh channels as well as a few regular staples of the travel YouTuber sphere to keep an eye on throughout the year to help inspire your own travels.

Have you spotted a channel I’ve missed? Let me know in the comments below.

Stephen and Jessica Parry Valentine (Flying The Nest)

I’ve not seen this Australian husband and wife duo appear on any other Youtube travel inspiration list, and I’m not sure why. Stephen and Jessica’s videos are fun and informative as they explore the world and put together a small series of videos for each destination they visit.

During 2021, they adopted the van life lifestyle travelling around Australia and have recently headed back overseas to explore the world again.

Check out Flying The Nest on Youtube and look at their website for more great tips.

Kara and Nate (Kara and Nate)

This husband and wife duo have been on the road and documenting their travels since January 2016. The pair started out on a quest to visit (and document) 100 countries before 2020.

Now they continue to document their travels both across North America in a van as well as internationally. Follow their story over at Kara and Nate on YouTube.

Eamon and Bec (Eamon & Bec)

Van life became a bit of a theme for travel vloggers during 2020 and 2021, but if you are looking to delve further into life on the road with a couple who were well ahead of the van life trend, then Eamon and Bec’s channel might be more of your speed.

They’ve taken to life on the road driving their way around the globe, in fact, they have two vans, one in Morocco one in Canada and an off-the-grid cabin they built while international borders were closed. Find out more on their channel – Eamon & Bec

Mark Wiens (Migrationology)

If travel is all about the cuisine for you, then Mark Wiens might be more your flavour. Based in Asia but also travels around the world, Mark’s videos on his main channel Migrationology are all about the local food experiences he discovers during his explorations, particularly street foods and local restaurants. Also following the links on his main Youtube channel to his Mark Abroad channel for general travel videos.

Louis Cole (Fun For Louis)

No travel YouTuber list would be complete without mentioning Louis Cole. With around 2 million subscribers on his personal channel Fun For Louis, this British traveller became synonymous with daily travel vlogs.

These days Louis now travels with his partner Raya and have created a joint channel. The couple split their time between travelling across North America in a custom-converted bus and exploring other international destinations.

Find out more about their more recent travels on the Raya and Louis channel.

Nadine Sykora (Hey Nadine)

Another stalwart of the Youtube travel community, Nadine’s a Canadian creator who has been putting out amazing travel content for several years.

While international travel has been off the table, Nadine’s focus has moved more to her new young family but still has an abundance of great, fun and informative travel content in her back catalogue.

As travel starts to become easier as borders continue to reopen, no doubt Nadine will add more great travel content to her channel. Head over to Hey Nadine on Youtube as well as her website to find out more –

Christianne Risman (Backpacking Bananas)

Christianne started her channel as a backpacker sharing her journey around exploring South America, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Her fun and infectious backpacker style still continue to this day as she adopts the digital nomad lifestyle, currently travelling around Europe.

Christian LeBlanc (Lost LeBlanc)

After cinematic travel videos which a quirky sense of humour? Canadian YouTuber Christian and his channel Lost LeBlanc might be for you.

Now based in Bali he splits his time between the Indonesian island and his native Vancouver as well as travelling the world.

Christian’s content previously was primarily focused on cheap travel around South East Asia; however as his video style has become more and more cinematic, he’s since expanded his portfolio to more luxurious destinations all over the globe.

  1. Please give a shoutout to FAMILY travel vloggers too that have their comments disabled by YouTube because they have kids! We’re a family sailing around the world ⛵️ ? with kids, low carbon footprint, high content output.. yet struggle to reach a wider audience because of YouTube restrictions. So we need collaborators to spread the word that starting a family doesn’t mean an end to travel and adventure – we recently visited the Turkey/Syrian border region! So please find these channels and give them a boost! ?

  2. when i look at a few lists like this here about best travel vblogs , then i wonder, where is Bald and bankrupt ? , he got 3,1 mil subs on you tube.
