Glowworm Caves: Waitomo, New Zealand

Okay, so glowworms. In a cave. Can you even picture anything more magical than that?! Mother Nature was totally showing off when she decided to exclusively bless the already gorgeous country with the glowworm, Arachnocampa luminosa. Imagine slowly drifting through the sparkling Glowworm Grotto, surrounded by a galaxy of biological luminescence… If you’re more of an adventurous type, black water rafting through this breathtaking cavern will most likely be the most memorable thing you ever do.

Benagil Sea Cave: Algarve, Portugal

You’ll feel like an explorer who’s just discovered the world’s most magical location when you make it to the picturesque Benagil Sea Cave. Sea caves are formed through the constant erosion caused by waves and the one close to Benagil Beach is absolutely glorious. The options of getting to this epic cave are few, either take a boat or brave the swim from the beach. Just be sure to go around midday when the sun illuminates the cavern and you’ll truly be able to revel in all of its glory.

Galapagos Islands: Ecuador

The awe-inspiring beauty and friendly animals just may make you think differently about the world. This isolated group of twenty volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem has taken on almost mythological status as a showcase of biodiversity. Yet you don’t have to be an evolutionary biologist or an ornithologist to appreciate one of the few places left on the planet where the human footprint is kept to a minimum. About 80% of the land birds you will see, 97% of the reptiles and land mammals, 20% of marine life, and more than 30% of the plants can only be found here and do not exist elsewhere on Earth.

Bryce Canyon: Bryce, Utah, USA

There’s literally no place in the world quite like this national park. Hoodoos (tall, lanky pillars of rock) are the results of erosion and the spectacular highlights of this special place. Visit any time of year; during rain, snow, or a clear star-filled night — regardless of the elements the gorgeous geological hotspot will leave you breathless.

Whether you’re a first time traveler or you’re experienced, these top places should be on your bucket list so you can experience the joy and wonder of this beautiful planet. Which place are you visiting first?
