We all have some interesting morning habits. Mine is to scroll through my favourite Vancouver Instagram accounts over a steaming cup of Balinese tea. And while the better part of my day is generally spent inspiring others to scoop up their passports and jetset to far off places, with a quick swipe on my aging iPhone 4 (don’t judge), amazing Vancouver Instagrammers are out there reminding me that my backyard is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. So whether you share a passion for my hometown, or Vancouver is on your bucketlist, start following these fantastic Vancouver Instagram accounts:
Vancouver is Awesome (@viawesome)
Yes, yes it is. And so to are the areas around Vancouver, and if you had any doubt, scroll through some of their pics of Brandywine falls, Mt. Nimbus, and Garibaldi Park, stunning! Make sure to tag your photos with #vancouverisawesome to get featured on their account!
Not every city is lucky enough to experience all four seasons, but my hometown does it with flair. This Vancouver Instagram account makes the dreariest of days look glamorous.
Anyone who’s an active member of the Vancouver social media community knows Bahar. She’s fabulously hilarious, beautiful inside and out, and above all, she loves to get behind the lens! And when she’s not playing cupid around town, or teaching her teenage son how to be a gentleman, she takes incredible photos of my hometown. Bahar can turn a mediocre stroll in the park into a romantic journey into another era.
As the official account for Tourism Vancouver, this Vancouver Instagram account will take you on a virtual tour of the far corners of this part of the world. From the cobble stoned streets of our beloved Gastown, to the Peak of Vancouver at Grouse Mountain. Make sure to tag your photos with #veryvancouver to get featured on their account!
Vancouver is beautiful, but so to are the souls that capture its uniqueness. Vancouverize is a great localized perspective of what eating, drinking and living in this coastal town is all about.
Karm Sumal is a permanent fixture on Vancouver’s social media landscape. Karm is the co-founder of Vancity Buzz, the ultimate guide to everything Vancouver, and he runs one of the most popular Vancouver Instagram accounts.
This is one of those Vancouver Instagram accounts that makes me want to up my photography game. Evgeny Demin focuses on urban and landscape photography, and every time I scroll through his gallery, I fall even more in love with my town.
Must Be Vancouver (@mustbevancouver)
I love this account because it regularly curates all of my favourite Vancouver Instagrammers into one place. Must Be Vancouver shows off Vancouver through the lens of its various local enthusiasts, and it’s a great place to learn about neighbourhoods to explore, epic views to seek out or fun things to do.
Historical Vancouver (@historical_vancouver)
I often hear people say things like “Vancouver has no culture”, or “we don’t really have a history because we’re so new.” History is yesterday, new or not, every city has a history, and ours is rich, controversial, interesting and brought to life in this very cool Instagram account.
Miss 604 (@miss604)
Rebecca Bollwitt is one of the hardest working women in this town, but she also has a lot of fun. Her crazy successful blog Miss604 has been giving Vancouverites the scoop on everything unique, relevant and cultural for more than 10 years. Her Instagram features the best of Vancouver, as well as snapshots from her adventures abroad.
