Cue the wanderlust: These are the world’s most Instagrammed forests

Travellers from nearly every continent on the planet are sharing their experiences of visiting the world’s forests.

Instagram is a constant source of inspiration for modern travellers, whether gauging the allure of destinations or experiences.

The photo-sharing platform is also a powerful resource for interpreting the interests of millennials and modern travellers.

As it turns out, wandering off the beaten track, and being considerate of the environment is becoming more important for travellers, with in-destination experiences being favoured over the destinations themselves.

Visiting national parks or wandering through the world’s forests are some of the best ways to enjoy these kinds of experiences, so long as travellers commit to leave no trace on their journeys.

A new study by airport taxi service Taxi2airport.com has revealed where to find the world’s most photographed and shared forests, based on an aggregation of Instagram hashtags associated with each of them.

Germany’s Black Forest, Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest, England’s Sherwood Forest, Japan’s Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and Australia’s Daintree Forest are the world’s five most Instagrammed.
