The most beautiful places in the world – Cook Islands
If winter is not your favorite season, you are sure to want an exotic destination. In this case, we have a wonderful proposal for you – the Cook Islands. Although the journey is long, the small archipelago in the South Pacific will fulfill all your expectations of paradise – miles of sandy shores, palm trees, pleasant climate, stunning coral reefs and turquoise lagoon with crystal clear waters. The islands are almost unpopulated and away from most of the “wonders” of technological advances – just perfect if you want to treat yourself to a brief break from civilization. The capital Avarua on the largest island of Rarotonga is a popular destination for tourists.
The most beautiful places in the world – Canada’s National Parks, Moraine Lake
Canada’s national parks are famed for their unique natural beauty, and we are just one such place you would undoubtedly remember for a lifetime – Moraine Lake, located in Banff National Park in western Canada. What makes the landscape so outstanding is the contrast between the bright color of the water and the green tones of the woods, as well as the 10 huge peaks that rise around the lake. Apart from hiking, you could also go on an unforgettable canoe trip through the unspoilt countryside in the National Parks.
The most beautiful places in the world – Iceland, Seljalandsfoss waterfall
Undoubtedly, Iceland is one of the most breathtaking places in the world – with its black beaches, geysers, volcanic fields, icebergs and lush green meadows, the landscape is simply overwhelming. And in winter you can also watch the magically beautiful Northern Lights in the sky. If you are planning a trip to Iceland, we recommend that you visit the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is located in the south of the Atlantic island and falls from a steep cliff in a small lake of 66 meters height. The flowing curtain of water is a view that you would not forget for a lifetime!
Greece: Athens and the islands in the Aegean Sea
If you are a fan of cutoreous tourism, the Greek capital of Athens is the perfect destination for you! There you would learn all about the cultural heritage of the ancient world by visiting the most famous sights – the Acropolis, Parthenon, the National Archaeological Museum. Greece also has magical nature, and you could also visit some of the islands in the Aegean Sea – a popular destination are the Cyclades, as well as the islands of Rhodes and Santorini.
Machu Picchu, Peru
One of the most important cultural monuments in the world is undoubtedly Machu Pucchu in Peru. The ancient city of the Incas is located on a mountaintop, in the middle of the Andes, at 2360 meters altitude! The ruins of Machu Picchu were only discovered in 1911 by the Hawaiian Hiram Bingham, and to this day the city is not completely historically and archaeologically explored and surrounded by many mysteries. But the sight of the mountain makes the breath stop, so Machu Picchu is called one of the new seven wonders of the world.
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
Yewollstone National Park is by far the most popular in the US, and it’s no coincidence – majestic cliffs and pine forests, green valleys and steep slopes combine in their uniquely beautiful scenery. World famous are the Old Faihful geyser, the Firehole River, and the numerous hot springs that impress with their beautiful colors.
