20+ Best WordPress Travel Blog Themes (Compared)

Out of the box, with tons of great blogging features, WordPress is easily the best platform for building websites. Moreover, by installing one of the best themes below, you will have a unique travel blog site with a high-quality design ready to be used for the latest content.

Some themes are created specifically for travel blogging, others are versatile and suitable for a range of projects. However, all of these themes include at least one pre-built demo site related to travel blogging. In addition to all the pre-defined content, layouts and templates, you get a wealth of customization options through a control panel that allows you to personalize every aspect of the site with just a few clicks of a button. For those who want to have better control over the look of their site, the built-in advanced page editor will come in handy.

No matter what type of travel blog you want to create, you will find the right choice here.

1. Trawell

View Details

Considering the 5-minute setup process, Trawell should appeal to a group that is focused on creating website content (rather than spending time picking out beautiful themes), so anyone looking to start a blog will appreciate this quick start method.

That's not to say Trawell lacks any key features, on the contrary, they offer some attractive homepage designs, blog layouts, and page templates to choose from, allowing you to easily add essential content to your website. If you want to publish content in multiple languages, this theme offers good support for leading WordPress multilingual plugins, and RTL language integration can also come in handy.

Other reasons to choose this theme are Google Maps - to share your historical footprint in an interactive map format, and to ensure the implementation of monetization options for blog ads and other offers. Since Trawell integrates seamlessly with the popular WooCommerce e-commerce plugin, you can sell digital content (e.g. travel guides) and physical products (including items featured in the countries/regions you visit) through your blog.

2. Publisher

View Details

Among the many content-centric demo sites, you can find options such as travel guides and travel blogs, import your own site with just a few clicks of a button, then replace the demo content with custom text and images, then explore the theme options and site settings.

Theme customization options cover all aspects of layout, colors, fonts, and more, allowing you to personalize your travel blog as you wish. In addition, you can use the integrated page editor to create custom page designs or edit the pre-defined templates that make up the Publisher demo site.

Publisher contains many options when it comes to pre-built templates and page layouts, and one type preferred by travel bloggers should be a list of articles. Therefore, if you plan to post popular attractions or travel tips on your site, these templates should be carefully studied. Other presets include email newsletter forms, image and video gallery layouts, and important pages (such as Contact and About Us). Whenever you publish a new post on your blog, you can choose from a range of relevant modern designs.

However, since Insight includes a dynamic homepage editor, you can easily adjust the elements and layout on the homepage.
