The 50 Best Travel Blogs Awards

One thing is for sure, there’s enough travel blogs on the web to please everyone! Even though I think my travel blog is the best (of course I do!), there are a lot of amazing bloggers out there, doing an awesome job at telling travel tales and giving advice on the matter.

This list of the 50 best travel blogs isn’t based on metrics (how much traffic these websites have), because as a blog reader (and I read a lot of them!), I am not at all interested in those numbers, and I believe you aren’t either. When I am looking to be entertained with great travel stories, I want to find a fun or sexy or honest blog, not a blog that scores high at Google Analytics.

Of course, it’s quite hard to rate blogs as the funniest or sexiest ones. To qualify for an EPT Best Travel Blogs Award, the blogger’s website need to be full of high quality content, and the website design has to be clean (uncluttered) and enjoyable to read and look at. Also, I didn’t rank them from 1 to 50 since they are all exquisite bloggers!

If you don’t agree with my choices, please send me in the comment box below the blogs you like and in which category you think they should appear, and I will look it up!

To all the deserving winners, please feel free to embed the crest on your website!

I wish you some very interesting discoveries!

The Greatest Travel Blogs

(Or the Travel Blogs I Am Jealous Of)


  • Y Travel Blog – This family has been traveling around the world for years, and I just want to be able to keep traveling at least as long as they have been.EPT Best Travel Blogs Awards
  • A Lady in London – She has been to more than 101 countries! This is enough to make any wanderluster envious! And she’s sooo classy!
  • Globetrotting Galore – If I am jealous of A Lady in London who traveled to 101 countries, I obviously envy Gunnar who had been to ALL of them! I am looking forward to beating his ’19 countries in 24 hours’! What’s even more impressive is that he has visited that many countries while working full-time! Kudos to Gunnar!
  • Ok, there are too many travelers who visited all the countries of the world: I am jealous of them all!
  • Nomad Revelations – João’s unique travel experiences are so invigorating. Who wouldn’t want to live among an indigenous Amazon tribe (where the women are topless) or ride for 22-hours straight in a pick-up truck in Mali?
  • The Style Traveller – Unlike me, Bonnie always looks fabulous when travelling.
  • Goats On the Road – A Canadian couple, Nick & Dariece, who really made it in the travel blogging industry! Congrats, fellow Canadian!

You may wonder why Nomadic Matt isn’t on my list. It’s not that I don’t like him, I absolutely do. But since he is dominating so much the travel blog industry, I wanted to give other people a chance (I always take for the underdogs!).

    What a great list of blogs. Thank you for sharing it. Wanted to introduce you to Authentic Food Quest and nominate ourselves in the Yummiest Travel Blog Category. We focus on discovering authentic food from around the world and highlighting those dishes to inspire people to travel through food. We started our website in mid-2015 and spent 6 months in South America discovering the dishes of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Peru. We are now getting ready to continue our quest in Southeast Asia. We would love to be considered for future awards. Thanks for your time and consideration. Rosemary

    Hi Dominique, this is a great list! I love that you break it down into categories, so people can check out exactly the type of blogs they’re interested in. My sister and I just started blogging back in July 2016 but would love for you to take a look at our blog and consider us for your next round of awards!

    MVMT Blog focuses on inspiring those with full time jobs or full time educations to make the most of their vacation days and travel the world! We also try to find more remote/unheard of destinations to travel to and blog about. For instance, we just got back from a trip to the Faroe Islands, which many people haven’t heard of before! Hope you’ll take a look when you have a minute. 🙂 Happy travels!

  • Danny Hicks

    Great work putting all of them together. Seriously, all of the sites looks very informative. Let’s travel more!!

  • Sarah

    Great list – nice to find some less well known travel blogs as some of these types of posts tend to focus more on the big names, making it even harder for newer bloggers to get their blogs out there! Cheeky I know, but we’d love to be considered for your next list 🙂

    • Dominique Lessard

      Thanks for your comment! Of course I will consider yours…
      Ask, and you shall receive 😉

  • Al Kadam

    Why is my blog not in the list? Just kidding. 🙂
    I actually came to get more inspiration as I am already feeling hopeless getting people to read my stories. I am a newbie who is on the verge of quitting 🙂 Thanks for the list, I love most of those you declared winners. Now I gotta push myself a little more; I am energized.

    • Dominique Lessard

      Travel blogging is a hard business, but quitting isn’t an option! Keep working hard, and it will pay off eventually 🙂

  • Bella

    This list is so inspiring! My blog is quite new and I found this list while looking for inspiration. Next year I intend to be worthy of inclusion in it – Lonely Planet have chosen me to be one of their top bloggers of the month for the last 3 months in a row so hopefully I will be!
    Best wishes

    Great list! I came hear looking for inspiration, and Wow, Wow, WOW!!

    I’m a new blogger, well I say new, I’ve built my website just over a year ago and I’ve been blogging regularly since I’ve been in South America over the past 8 months.

    My site needs a bit of a facelift I think, but my writing is definitely getting better with each post! (Bolivia by Bus, is one I’m particularly proud of!)

    I would really appreciate any feedback you have for me. (I’d love to be able to make your list next time, so any pointers more than welcome!)
