Let’s be honest, social media can be tricky. Algorithms are always changing, posts aren’t in chronological order and no one seems to be seeing your content. This can make it hard to grow your account or even make sure that your friends and family can see your post. Hashtags are a great way to get your content out there and to find similar content relevant to you. This article focuses on nature hashtags, but these techniques works for any photo or video you upload.

Nature Hashtags

The best nature hashtags for all of your photos

Makes you want to visit North Carolina, doesn’t it?

Whether you’re snapping a picture of a bunny in your backyard or a mountain scape in Banff, nature photos are super popular across all platforms. With the popularity of these shots, you never know how many extra likes, follows, comments or even reposts you’ll get just by using the right nature hashtags.

Simply using the tag #nature isn’t enough, but it’s definitely a start! Think about the words that go along with the shot and of course, your location. Here are some easy to use hashtags that generate major engagement:

#nature #instagood #photography #sun #photooftheday #sunset #photo #sky #amazing #pretty #view #naturephotography #fun #art #winter #wildlife #blue #pink #ocean #picture #sea #instagram #night #naturelovers #landscape #snow #canon #picoftheday #instadaily #vscocam

Landscape Hashtags

Who knew you could find such a forested setting in Turkey?

Nature hashtags are great for your nature shot, but if your post fits into another niche category, it’s always good to use more direct hashtags. If your photo is of the landscape, whether city or nature, it’s good to use specific landscape hashtags.

Feel free to mix and match the nature hashtags with the landscape hashtags. Changing up hashtags over time is also a good idea, especially because Instagram is always changing its algorithm.

Some stellar landscape hashtags include: #landscape #nature #photography #sky #sunset #travel #view #picoftheday #clouds #instagood #mountains #photo #winter #naturephotography #love #photooftheday #trees #instadaily #traveling #beautiful #naturelovers #sun #vsco #landscapelovers #colours #igers #explore #landscapephotography #like4like #wanderlust

These popular hashtags range from as simple as #sunset or #sun to #skyporn and #wanderlust. Sunset hashtags to consider:

Wildlife Hashtags

When you save your hashtags, you save time uploading them to your caption.

If you’re one of the lucky people who are quick enough to spot and photograph wildlife, you’ll want to use the right wildlife hashtags on social media, so your tribe can see your snaps.

Everyone loves a good wildlife photo and the better you tag, the more people will see it. Be sure to also tag the tourism board in the area. If they’re doing their job right (and your pic is epic), maybe they’ll repost it.

Some top wildlife hashtags to include in your caption:

#wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #photography #naturephotography #wild #birds #naturelovers #bird #animals #photooftheday #art #landscape #instagram #outdoors #birdphotography #forest #beautiful #natgeo #winter #birdwatching #birdsofinstagram #photographer #natural #plants #flowers #mountains #sunset #adventure #naturaleza

Top Travel Hashtags

As you can see, some IGers prefer to put their hashtags in the comment section instead of the actual caption.

No matter where you’re travelling, tagging your pictures is super important. You’ll want to tag the destination (and don’t forget to use that location tag in Instagram), but there’s also a few top travel hashtags you’ll want to use on social media.

Travel is another great time to tag the tourism board of the area. A quick google or Instagram search should find you the right username for the destination marketing board. If that fails, check the local hashtags for the top local accounts.

Then, follow this guide and use the following hashtags so that your photo is seen all over the globe:

Top Travel Hashtags: #travel #instagood #photooftheday #instatravel #love #nature #trip #beautiful #wanderlust #travelgram #photographer #picoftheday #traveling #winter #happy #like4like #landscape #sky #photo #travelphotography #lifestyle #beach #travelling #architecture #likeforlike #holiday #vacation #travelblogger #follow4follow #naturephotography
