The Top Travel Youtubers to Watch (with links)

Travel is our ultimate passion and favourite hobby of all, and we’re pretty sure it’s the same for you and that’s why you’re here! World travel brings so many incredible benefits that we all seem to get bitten by the travel bug and we can’t get enough of it!

The result of that is even when we’re not travelling the world, we wish we were. When we are at home enjoying some downtime we like tuning into some of our favourite travel YouTubers and going with them on adventures to find new inspiration, useful information and of course, to be entertained!

If you’ve been missing travel lately and want to explore the world with the very best travel YouTubers out there, scroll down to see our list of favourites, chances are there will be a few you haven’t heard of! 


Harald Baldr


Harald Baldr is in fact, the first travel YouTuber I ever watched.

Herald, Mr Baldieri, Progressive Lance, the Albino; Harald goes by many names, most of which are given to him by his larger-than-life fanbase.

Harald opened my eyes to the whole world of documenting your travels to share with others, not to mention he practically pioneered the long-cut style of vlogging.

The way he explores sketchy neighbourhoods in countries around the world, with such confidence and joyful resilience makes him a memorable person to watch.

Harald is best known for his unique encounters with locals. He never misses an opportunity to invade a local family home or getting in the kitchen of a restaurant to show us how people live around the world.

He is also quite a history buff and loves to teach us about the histories of the countries he visits.

Harald is a stranger to his own comfort-zone it seems. From eating roasted Guinea pigs in Peru and crispy Scorpions in Thailand, it’s what makes his channel so addictive.

Despite Harald’s great success in the travel industry, he is also a very generous man who has given back to people in the community numerous times, to those who have made a lasting impression on him and who he hopes will have a bright future ahead of them with some help.

Bald and Bankrupt


Not long after I started watching Harald’s videos, I realised his good friend, Bald also had a YouTube channel all about travel.

Bald is such a compassionate, charming man to watch – a firm favourite with Russian-speaking Babushka’s, he is a real man of the people.

What makes this travel YouTuber so unique is that he is an Englishman that speaks fluent Russian and Hindi!

This enables you to get a unique inside perspective of the lives of locals in the countries he travels to the most, Russia and India.

Expect to see a very unique way of travelling and interacting with the world, in often dangerous and desolate places that don’t see tourists.

Bald’s channel grew quickly and it’s not hard to see why, his youthful energy, attention to detail and engaging storytelling are just some of the things that made him our favourite travel YouTuber.

Itchy Boots


Itchy Boots tells the turbulent and exhilarating tales of Noraly, an energetic female biker from Holland, tackling a daring round the world trip on her Royal Enfield Himalayan.

Noraly has had her fair share of crazy travel experiences and tricky problems to solve along the way, but the local people in the countries she explores are never far away when she needs a helping hand.

Her travel videos show the ups-and-downs of riding a motorcycle in some of the most perilous terrains on Earth ranging from icy mountain passes to roads blocked by dangerous mudslides and falling rocks.

Because she likes to keep her video blogs quite short, you are always eager to see what happens in the next episode!

Itchy Boots is a vibrant travel YouTuber that will really take you for a ride and keep you wanting more!

Peter is a Slovakian film maker, world explorer and comedian with some of the most entertaining travel videos on YouTube.

He travels with a light-hearted approach and always manages to see the bright side of a situation.

What I really like about Peter’s travel vlogs is you get to feel and experience what it’s like in some unusual countries you may not have heard of.

Peter shares his thoughts and feelings with his audience and really seems like a great person. One thing I really love about his content is that he challenges the negative stereotypes we so often hear about poorer countries.

In a very creative series that is full of comedy, he reviews the ‘best and worst’ establishments in a particular country – a series that has gained a ton of popularity.

Warning: once you start watching PPPeter, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve seen them all!

Where’s Poppy


Where’s Poppy is the vibrant travel journey of a zesty, full-time explorer in search of a connection with local people and their culture.

From what I have seen, Poppy has been on the road for more than 3 years.

At one point she moved to China and learned to speak Mandarin.

In every video she carries her characteristic uplifting mindset and generally inquisitive nature that makes her a pleasure to watch.

Poppy is a journalist as well a traveller and gets to know people from Costa Rica all the way to Australia to discover how people live and what challenges they face.

Follow her adventures into rural China and Tibet to see some very inspirational and original travel films.

Gabriel Traveller


Gabriel is perhaps the most experienced travel YouTuber on this list, with almost 4 decades of world travel under his belt.

Exploring mysterious destinations far and wide, his travel videos really immerse you in the surroundings.

Not only has Gabriel traveled a lot, but he has explored so much of the countries he’s visited.

His narrative offers useful advice coming from a lot of experience that could help you travel smarter.

Gabe has written two books, “Following My Thumb” and “Gabe’s Guide to Budget Travel”. He’s also been featured on international television numerous times!

What I really enjoy is that these videos are raw and capture the real side of the destinations he visits. Missing are the annoying effects or distracting music you often see on other travel channels. It’s simple exploration of the unknown world, from hiking Himalayan mountain trails to walking the interesting streets of cities most don’t even know about.

Steve Yalo


I haven’t been watching Steve Yalo for very long, but right from the beginning I found him very likeable and entertaining to watch.

Steve left his life on the hamster wheel in the USA behind and started travelling the world.

It seems he quickly caught the bug as he hasn’t turned back since!

Steve is as free-spirited as he looks and every adventure with him is full of ear-to-ear smiles and moments of laugh-out-loud comedy – making his vlogs so much fun to watch.

From Sri Lanka to Columbia, Steve has travelled to some stunning, gorgeous destinations and likes to provide helpful tips and advice to help you achieve your travel dreams.
