Instagram may be notorious for filling your feed with photos of food, self portraits and the odd shot of Paulina Gretzky in a bikini, but for travellers, the network with over 100 million users can be a good start to connect with fellow globetrotters.
There may be purists who believe Instagram may never replace a physical camera, but it's tough to argue against the ease of sharing photos when you've got a smartphone in hand. More than that, travellers now have an easy way to find a source of inspiration when planning their next trip. And with a base of 100 million users and counting, there's bound to be plenty of filter-enhanced inspiration lying around.
So to help, HuffPost Canada Travel has rounded up some of the best Canadian Instagram accounts out there to help fellow travellers see what parts of the country they may be missing out on.
