To share with you some of our Instagram favourites we have created a list of the top Instagram destinations worthy for your visit. With everything from underwater parks to mountains ranges we will kick start you adventure so that you too can tell a story through some awesome pictures.
Sua Ocean Trench, Samoa
The Sua Ocean Trench, (translated as “large swimming hole”) is a swimming spot located in Lotofaga village, on the south coast of Upolu island in Samoa. Orginating from a time when volcanoes erupted and covered the nearby shores with lava. The ground collapsed, leaving behind a 30 meters deep hole which connects with the ocean through underground canals.

Kayaking in Kamchatka, Russia
Kamchatka is one of the few places on earth not accessible by road. Home to 30 active volcanoes, the Geyser valley (6km of geysers and hot springs, only reached by helicopter) and the Starichkova Island Nature Reserve, there is no better place to explore. Get dropped off by helicopter at the foot of a volcano, cross the Siberian taiga where you will see no roads or people, kayak down to the Bering sea past bears, dolphins, killer whales and sea lions. Truly the experience of a lifetime

Green Lake, Austria
Every Spring this incredible park disappears under water. During summer the snow melts which causes the lake to flood and submerge everything around it. With twelve metres of water covering trees, footpaths and bridges you feel like you’re swimming in an underwater world. This is an ultimate experience and a definite Instagram worthy picture. So get your friends together and head over to Austria.
