Travelling has been growing in popularity in the past decade, and with it the explosion of Instagram and YouTube travel themed videos.
Take a look at our video, which rounds up 10 of our favorite music tracks for travel videos from Envato Elements, a subscription-based library full of over a million digital creative assets, including (but not limited to) royalty-free music, sound effects, video templates, stock footage and more.
If purchasing per track is more your style, here are 34 of the best royalty-free music tracks for travel videos available at AudioJungle.
I’ve arranged them by the general destinations: Latin America, Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and Islands of the World.
Samba, Rumba, Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bomba—from Mexico to Argentina, the range of music coming out of Latin America is wide and varied.
The most popular styles are a blend of African, Indigenous and European sounds and range from uptempo beats to dreamy, laidback rhythms.
No matter which Latin American country you’re travelling to, you’ll find a sound to match the mood of your video in one of the over 2,623 tracks at AudioJungle.
Here's the five best in this category:
1. Latin Summer
3. Mexican Song
4. Latin Percussion
5. Latin Mind
With a distinct sound created by the Persian oud, the dilruba, the bansuri flute and the qanun, the Middle Eastern tracks featured here are both hypnotic and exciting and range from the upbeat to the gently contemplative.
Whether the journey takes you to Persia or Egypt, the tracks in this category on AudioJungle will bring a touch of authenticity to your creation.
6. Istanbul Orient
7. Eastern Charm
8. The Letter
9. Middle East
With such a wide and ethnically diverse region, it's impossible to represent all the sounds of Asia with just five selections, so I’ve selected a few of the more popular destinations in Asia.
If you don’t find the sound you are looking for here, you're sure to find it in the Asia category at AudioJungle.
14. Chinese Spring
Bringing a western twist to some of the traditional music found across Africa, these tracks present a range of sounds and instruments from bouncy percussions to catchy tribal vocals.
They don’t represent any one country in Africa, per se, but attempt to blend sounds from different countries to create a sound that can be used for videos featuring most countries you travel to on the continent.
15. African Music Background
16. African Savanna
17. Happy Africa
18. Africa Tribal World
19. African Beat

Music from Europe is as hard to represent in just five tracks as any of the other geographical areas represented here.
So I’ve chosen music identified with just five countries from different points on the European map that’s ideal for your travel video, but just remember that if I haven’t mentioned a country you’re interested in, you can search for your country of choice at AudioJungle.
23. The Greek
In spite of the attempt to forge one identity from many, North American music is still heavily influenced by the culture of the dominant ethnic groups that colonised or migrated to the continent.
This has led to quite an exciting range of music across each country, particularly the United States. This means, of course, that no matter where you’re travelling in North America, you can find quite a unique regional sound to enhance your video production, from Blue Grass in Kentucky to Zydeco or Cajan in Louisiana to the Blues of the Mississippi Delta.
Here are just five of the wonderful tracks that reflect this wonderful musical heritage.
25. Banjo Funk
27. Summer French Jazz
28. That Hip-Hop
29. Blues Rock
Islands of the World
The islands of the world rarely get a look in on any list, but from Iceland to Barbados, they are very popular vacation spots, and many of them have their own unique music that will lend your music video just the right vibe.
This list of five can’t possibly represent the range of island sounds out there, so again just regard it as a place to start.
30. Bonita Beach
31. Jamaican Sun
32. Tropical Island Life
33. Hawaiian Love
34. Southern Atoll
