Happy New Year! Let 2020 be your year of adventure and excitement! To help you along we’ve complied a bunch of bucket-list faves that will set your travel itinerary ablaze and make your insta stream look awesome!
1. Montana – Glacier National Park
It’s the largest sea hole in the world and absolutely awesome for diving, but if it’s the view you are after – take a trip on a small plane!
2. Belize – The Great Blue Hole
1,500 square miles of pure wilderness with hundreds of miles of hiking trails amongst the fabulous glacier carved peaks of the Rockies.
3. Hawaii – Volcanoes National Park
Here is where you’ll find some of the best volcano viewing in the world. Active volcanoes are constantly adding to the flowing rivers of molten rock and lava lakes, creating a natural pyrotechnic show as the lava spills into the ocean.
4. Turkey – Cappadocia
A lunaresque landscape like nowhere else on earth. The best views are from the daily hot air balloon rides, which take place at dawn – a surreal sight that adds to this awesome destination!
5. Peru – Machu Picchu
High in the Andes mountains the relics of the Inca civilization will have a profound affect on your heart and soul. Take the long route there, a 4-day trek, and you’ll get to witness the Amazon cloud forest too!
6. Brazil – Iguazu Falls
These are collectively the largest waterfalls in the world, located on the border of Argentina and Brazil. If you want to see the whole thing, head to Brazil. If you want to feel the power of the falls but with limited views, head to Argentina.
7. Norway – North Coast
This is the only country in the world that will let you snorkel with orcas! Between November and February they appear to feast on migrating herring. You’ll likely see a host of other marine mammals during the dive too.
8. Iceland – Vatnajökull National Park
Ice caves, glaciers, lagoons with icebergs, geothermal rivers, snowy mountains, waterfalls and endless hiking trails all rub shoulders in this part of south Iceland.
9. New Zealand – Milford Sound
Could this be the most picturesque paradise on the planet? This fjord in the southwest is home to mountains, rainforests, waterfalls, fur seals, penguins and dolphins, and it is also the eighth wonder of the world.
10. Japan – Kyoto
Head here in autumn for the most stunning vistas of forests, formal gardens and Shinto shrines.
