Instagram is one of the best places to fuel your wanderlust. Well, that and your envy of everyone who is taking amazing vacations. As sad as it is, there are some vacations that we just can't afford — or they're just too exclusive for more than one person to experience.

Luxury travel can be anything: next-level hotels, safaris where no detail has gone forgotten, a secluded pool surrounded by rainforests and waterfalls. You can find all of these things and more in the wide world of well-traveled Instagrammers.

And even if you don't have the means to make a similar excursion, it's still fun to live vicariously. That's what the app is all about, right?

We went on a hunt to find the Instagrammers showing off the most luxurious travels around the world. You're welcome — or maybe we should apologize to your bank account.
