Hunt for glaciers in Greenland

Greenland is one of the world’s most unspoiled environments, making it pricey and difficult to reach yet well worth the trouble. Exhibit A is the glaciers and icebergs floating off the coast of the continental United States that you may see up close and personal when on a cruise.

Hot air balloon over Cappadocia, Turkey

Hot air balloon rides above the Cappadocia region of central Turkey provide 360-degree views of the well-known limestone spires and “fairy chimneys,” which are inaccessible from the ground. Booking with Kapadokya Balloons, the first business to introduce hot air balloon tourism to Cappadocia, is something we strongly advise. Transfers to and from your hotel, snacks, complete insurance, and a champagne reception following the flight are all included in the services.

Swim the Great Barrier Reef

Everyone should visit the Great Barrier Reef at least once in their lifetime, especially divers and snorkelers. The natural wonder boasts 1,500 species of fish and more than 400 different varieties of coral, but it has also been fast degrading as a result of coral bleaching and global warming. Therefore, it is imperative that we see it in all of its splendor and comprehend what we are losing.

Climb Mount Everest

Both hikers and non-hikers are familiar with Mount Everest, which looms big in the distance. But this is one beast that should only be tackled by someone with extensive travel expertise. Before tackling Everest, you need to climb at least three 20,000-foot summits, one 23,000-foot peak, and one 26,000-foot mountain, according to alpinist Adrian Ballinger, who made the attempt in 2016. But hey, if you’re one of the fortunate few with the knowledge, time, and resources required to climb Everest, then by all means, go for it. The climbing season this year, which ran from March to May, is already over, but you’ll still need that extra year to get ready.

Go on a canoe safari in the Okavango Delta, Botswana

When looking for excitement, going on a safari in Africa is a no-brainer. But how do you get started? Due to its abundance of wildlife and topographical diversity, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is a must-see for both novice and seasoned safari travelers. For the best, most up-close view of the roving elephants, antelope, and cheetahs, among other animals, board a mokoro boat. Stay at the eagerly awaited Xigera Safari Lodge, one of the most recent openings on the continent. There are 12 new raised suites, a baobab tree hut where guests may sleep beneath the stars, and numerous eco-friendly improvements to the resort.

Sleep under the Northern Lights

mysterious Northern Lights. Location, season, and weather are only a few of the variables that affect the technicolor phenomena, but a trip to Finnish Lapland is a surefire way to experience it. The Arctic region is one of the best places on Earth to observe the northern lights, especially if you get to stay at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort or a portable Aurora Bubble Sled. Plan your vacation between December and March to increase your chances of seeing wildlife.
