Sam Highley of All Roads North

Imagine the ultimate road trip. Globetrotter Sam Highley picks Instagram feeds to inspire.

Try not to get jealous, but some people aren’t glued to an office desk. Yorkshire boy, Sam Highley has been on the move since leaving University thirteen years ago. His career in travel includes helping an international e-commerce company expand in Europe, time in Buenos Aires with a luxury lodge operator and a stint managing a remote fishing camp in Northern Russia.

In 2013, he set up All Roads North, an unpretentious luxury travel company that custom designs American road trips. His job is to handpick the finest hotels, discover local experts and insider experiences. We asked Sam to select five travellers on Instagram worth following.
