Favorites embody Niagara Falls, Grand Canyon, Sahara, Mount Everest, The Useless Sea, Ha Lengthy Bay

  1. Americans, Europeans, Chinese, Japanese are counting the days to re-explore the world in a past COVID-19 reality.
  2. Hash tags on Instagram are a good indication of where travelers might want to go again, and Niagara Falls along Yosemite Park and the Grand Canyon top the list
  3. Unfortunately, the Great Pyramids of Giza received the fewest hashtags on Instagram during the ongoing crisis, but judging by the popularity of the pyramids, that will change once the world reopens

Destinations like Kilimanjaro and Victoria Falls are less desirable for COVID tourism trips. This is the same league ready to climb the Instagram ladder like Komodo Island, Angel Falls in Venezuela or the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

The high number of vaccinations in the United States, along with the reopening of the country to domestic travel, has put American tourists back on the streets, and it is showing.

Iceland is also open to visitors and the Northern Lights have become a favorite among those who post on Instagram.

Mount Everest in Nepal remains a magical place for Instagram. An upcoming fashion show at the world’s highest peak will add a Guinness world record to this image.

Described by Teddy Roosevelt as “a great sight every American should see,” it’s no surprise that the Grand Canyon ranks as the third most popular natural wonder in the world.

At 477 miles in length, the famous geological wonder is visited by approximately 6 million tourists annually, so it’s no wonder the warm ombre landscape has been hashtagged more than 4,000,000 times on Instagram to date. The Grand Canyon was beautifully carved by nature and is known for being one of the most rugged yet breathtaking natural wonders in the world.

The Sahara desert, Africa

The Danube Delta in Romania rounded off the top 5 Instagram-compatible natural wonders and collected a whopping 1,638,573 hashtags on Instagram.

The Danube Delta is the second largest of its kind in Europe and consists of deposited sediments that are transported by the river into the surrounding oceans. The bright blue river attracts many tourists, many of whom document their visit with a mandatory Instagram photo enjoying a leisurely boat ride or capturing the wildlife around it.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

With 1,612,457 hashtags from visitors, the Galapagos Islands are not in the top 5 and are the sixth most common natural wonder visible on Instagram.

The Ecuador-based Galapagos Islands are home to a lot of volcanic activity and are known for their mention in Darwin’s theory of evolution. In addition, the Galapagos Islands are very close to the equator, so guests can enjoy a warm climate all year round!

While the islands themselves act as stunning scenery, many Instagram photos of the natural wonder feature the native marine life that can be found there, making this natural creation a perfect place for those who love wildlife!

Halong Bay, Vietnam

With masses of marine life and towers of eroded limestone, Ha Long Bay’s natural configuration creates a picturesque seascape for visitors looking to upgrade their feed.

Aurora Borealis, Iceland

The aurora borealis in Iceland, better known as the northern lights, has earned the title of the most honorable natural wonder on earth with currently 1,167,915 hashtags.

Named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, the aurora borealis sky is adorned with a magnificent light show on dark, clear nights. Although unpredictable, tourists lucky enough to witness the spectacle experience one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world with rays of light dancing across the clear sky.

Due to the fact that the Northern Lights can only be captured under certain conditions, it’s no surprise that Aurora Borealis collects fewer hashtags than some other natural wonders!

With a total of 1,125,527 Instagram hashtags, Mount Everest is the ninth best Instagram-compatible natural wonder in the world.
