Must-sees on Netflix for travel lovers

Did you know that Netflix is filled with awesome shows and movies for travel lovers? In this article, I’ll share my favorite travel must-sees on Netflix.

Expedition Happiness

A German couple buys an old American school bus and transforms it into a campervan. They travel from Canada to the United States, to Mexico.

Travels with my father

The British comedian Jake Whitehall travels around the world with his father. They’re nothing alike, Jack prefers backpacking and eating street food, and his dad wants to stay in five-star hotels and eating typical English food. Very uncomfortable and very funny at the same time.

Sense 8

Sense 8 is a thrilling and exciting show, that takes place in 8 different cities in different countries. 8 characters never met each other, but are connected telepathically.

Pedal the world

Another German documentary about a long journey. In this movie, you will follow Felix, who plans to travel around the world on his bike. An amazing journey that will take you through Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the United States.

Chef's table

Do you think good food and travel are the perfect combinations? In that case, you should definitely check out Chef's table. In this show, you'll follow some of the best chefs in the world.


If you ever want to visit Colombia, make sure to watch Narcos. Great crime television series about Pablo Escobar and there's a lot of scenic views of Colombia.

Dark tourist

Not every single tourist is interested in the highlights during their travels, there's also something called 'dark tourism'. This is exactly what filmmaker David Farrier is looking for. An interesting show with lots of different travel stories.


In Unbranded, you'll follow four cowboys who travel through the American West from Mexico to Canada with sixteen mustangs (horses). The views are spectacular.

Hector and the search for happiness

This is a feel-good movie (perfect for a rainy day) with Simon Pegg. He portrays Hector, a bored psychiatrist, and decides to travel the world to find happiness.

The last laugh

A road trip comedy with Chevy Chase. Two retired men (a comedian and his manager) decide to go on their last comedy tour and they go on a road trip in the United States.

These are my favorite travel-related must-sees on Netflix. What are your favorites?
