Let’s be really honest about this place—it’s made for the best selfies in the world! Plan a trip to the Grand Canyon to visit a place that’s so big it’ll leave you speechless (at least for a few moments). Once you recover your breath, point your camera at the giant chasm that’s almost 30 km (18 mi) wide in some places. P.S. When you’re snapping those great selfies, keep a safe distance from the edge!

Ah, a vacation in Santorini—need I say more? It’s a place where the blue water matches the blue rooftops of whitewashed buildings overlooking one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world. Bold color makes for great photographs, and Santorini is all about color, dotted with black, white, and red beaches formed by volcanic eruptions. The best photo ops are in Fira and Oia, world-famous for their picture-perfect sunsets.

Few cities in the world are as grand as St. Petersburg, built by Peter the Great as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia. The legendary “white nights” in early summer enhance the city’s romantic atmosphere and allow you to snap memorable pix late into the night. Absolutes for a photo-obsessed St. Petersburg itinerary include photogenic landmarks like Catherine Palace and Park, Savior of the Spilled Blood Church, and Neva Embankments.

A visit to Andorra presents avid Instagrammers with a serious challenge: where to point the camera first? Tiny in terms of surface area and population, this teensy principality in southwestern Europe boasts grand mountain vistas, modern ski resorts, and ancient churches dating back a thousand years. So, what should you Instagram first? Start your photo journey at Grandvalira Ski Resort, where a selfie stick is all you need to document your incredible snowboarding or sledding skills on some of the 210 km (130 mi) of world-class runs.

More activities await on this complete itinerary, made with the Andorra trip planner:

Ready, Set, Instagram!

Remember your parents’ vacation memories, captured on sensitive rolls of film that had to be developed and then stashed into a box or bulky photo album? It’s a far cry from today’s world of social media and smartphones, which enable you to share your adventures with everyone instantly and easily. So what are you waiting for? Grab your selfie stick, use Inspirock’s itinerary maker to create your dream vacation, and head out into the great big world!
