It's time to add the world's Seven Natural Wonders to your bucket list!
Gaze up at the highest mountain in the world as you fill your lungs with fresh mountain air on a hike to Everest Base Camp, at an altitude of 5,364 metres. Or if hiking isn’t really your style, there’s always the option of a Himalayan mountain flight.
Based on its combined height and width, Victoria Falls are classified as the world’s largest waterfall. For the best views of the magnificent fall, complete with rainbows, the sweeping African landscape and quite possibly an elephant or two, take a helicopter ride over the top.
Sitting on the edge of the fiery red rocks of The South Rim of The Grand Canyon it feels as though you’ve entered another world. Rugged, huge and a masterpiece of colour contrasting, it’s a view you’ll never forget.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world largest coral reef, so big it can be viewed from space. Home to over 1,500 species of fish, 411 types of hard coral and 6 species of turtles – among more – it’s no wonder this is the ultimate dream for any diver.
A spectacular display of colours in the sky, the Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, appear when solar wind particles and air molecules collide at night. With Iceland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greenland, Canada and Alaska all offering excellent options for a winter break with a touch of magic, you’re spoilt for choice of destinations.
Infamous for its sudden eruption in the 1940’s and 50’s, Parícutin volcano is located near the city of Uruapan. Trek to the top either on horseback or by foot and look out over lava blackened villages and towns for a stark reminder of the power of our natural world.
Almost as famous as the Christ the Redeemer who watches over it is the Harbour of Rio de Janeiro. Created by erosion from the Atlantic Ocean the harbour is made up of a balloon shaped bay and the iconic Sugarloaf Mountain. Did you really need an excuse to add Rio to your travel bucket list?
