1. Inca Trail Trek at Machu Picchu, Peru

The Inca Trail in Peru is one of the world's most famous hiking pathways, stretching for 26 miles and passing through Incan ruins, hillside vistas, and cloud forests. The trek normally lasts four days and three nights and includes a visit to Machu Picchu, a 15th-century Incan fortress that is also one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. There is a sense of mystery and amazement for anyone who follows the trip path all the way to the peak because of the strange ruins all along with it.

2. Greece

The Greek Islands are one of the most affordable and picturesque areas in Europe and are ideal for relaxing, partying, or adventuring. If crystal blue oceans and beaches tempt you, with jaw-dropping sunset vistas in the background, then tour around the Greek Islands. The aquatic appeal here is more than one can wish for, so much so that you may be perplexed by the vast array of possibilities.

3. Northern Lights

While there is no guarantee that you will view the Aurora Borealis, it is worth planning a trip to see the Northern Lights, especially during peak aurora season, which runs from December to March.

The main draw is that you don't have to spend a fortune to experience the spectacular phenomena. There are several low-cost flights and accommodations in Norway, Iceland, and Sweden that you can couple with a Northern Lights adventure.

4. Leh-Manali Road Trip In India

Manali is a prominent summer hill resort in Himachal, famed for its pleasant temperature and snow-capped peaks. Leh, the capital of Ladakh, is located in Jammu and Kashmir, which has been termed "Heaven on Earth."

The Leh-Manali Highway connects these locations, and you may experience the tranquil natural splendor along the route. The route is approximately 490 kilometers long and reaches an elevation of 4000 meters. It cuts across mountainous terrain on both sides. You'll have plenty of opportunities to stop and snap photos of the stunning rock formations along the way. Once you reach the Rohtang Pass, the glacier peaks with gushing streams give way to abandoned and dry regions. Even those desolate landscapes are comforting to the sight.

5. Great Barrier Reef

A dive on the Great Barrier Reef, located off Queensland's Pacific Coast, is pure delight. This location is home to some of the world's most unusual marine vegetation and wildlife. Cairns, a metropolitan city, is a great place to start planning your scuba diving vacation to the reefs. It is also one of the top locations in Australia, one of the world's most popular backpacking destinations.

6. Galapagos Islands

If the prospect of being at the birthplace of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution isn't enough to get you to visit this once-in-a-lifetime location, perhaps the fact that it is a wildlife sanctuary and nature lover's paradise would. The protected Galapagos Islands are abundant with friendly and daring creatures, making it one of the few spots in the world where you may get up close and personal with wild animals. Sailing with killer whales, diving with sea lions, and viewing giant tortoises and marine iguanas in their native environment are all examples of up-close animal interactions. Aside from immersing oneself in the abundant animals, trekking in the Sierra Negra volcano is a one-of-a-kind experience to be had here.

7. Cherry Blossom In Japan

Japan is an incredible nation to visit at any time of the year, but April is most probably the best month of the entire year. Trees all around the nation are filled with pastel-colored petals during the spring season. Locals celebrate Hanami when people gather beneath the trees to party. It is a wonderfully fantastic time of year to not only view but also experiences Japan's natural beauty and culture.

8. Transylvania

Rural Transylvania's allure, with its historic citadels and treasured customs, will transport you into a real-life fairytale. Discover fantasy castles and fortified churches in this ancient area, meet the blacksmiths, truffle hunters, beekeepers, and botanists who keep local traditions alive, and embark on a beautiful horseback ride in the woodlands and woods.
