#1. The Azores, Portugal 🇵🇹
This Portuguese archipelago, located approximately 1,448 kilometers (900 miles) off the coast of Lisbon, may evoke desire with just a single photograph. The Azores is a wonderland worth a visit, with green valleys, towering oceanfront cliffs, rows of blue flower blooms, and sprinkling waterfalls. Just make sure you get there before everyone you know does. You don’t want to miss the juice of this site!
#2. Machu Picchu, Peru 🇵🇪
Machu Picchu is one of the most important discoveries of the old Inca Empire. Perched in the Mountain ranges of the Andes, the magnificent castle, as well as many structures scattered over the 8-kilometer (5-mile) site, are likely to be relics of a royal residence for Inca nobles or a religious complex. Although getting to the place in the mountains demands a long climb at a high elevation, the sights are unlike anything you’ll ever experience in your lifetime.
#3. Antarctica 🇦🇶
Yup, we just put a complete continent on this list. Antarctica is one of the most mystical destinations we have on planet Earth! Even though 99 percent of Antarctica is encased in ice, the environment is staggeringly diversified, with luminescent glaciers, active volcanoes, the turbulent rivers of the Drake Passage, and swiveling views of unpolluted snow.
#4. Lake Baikal, Russia 🇷🇺
Lake Baikal is located in Russia’s south-eastern Siberian region, surrounded by picturesque grandeur, lush green fields, and majestic snow-covered mountains. This magnificent lake is home to several species of animals and plants. On any given day, you can enjoy amazing animal tours and trekking experiences near Lake Baikal.
#5. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe 🇿🇼
Also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, you will learn why the locals refer to the awe-striking Victoria Falls as “The Thunderous Smoke” by visiting during the rainy months when the volume of water is considerably at its apex. The mist that spews back up resembles thick smoke, and the sound of water flowing over the rock before plummeting into a valley approximately 90+ meters (300+ feet) below sounds like the roll of thunder. An impressive sight, really.
