Magical Travel Destinations You Need To Visit In Your Life

Traveling is often high on peoples to-do list, yet few people manage to fit it into their busy schedules. This list will hopefully inspire you to block out some time in your calendar specifically for seeing the world. From fairy-tale like castles to breathtaking islands, any one of these seven travel destinations will make you want to drop everything that you’re doing and book the next plane out. Life-changing experiences and maybe even the world’s best selfies await.

1. Iguazu Falls, Argentina

    Argentina is home to Iguazu Falls, which separates the river between upper and lower Iguazu. There are over 275 different waterfalls within 1.67 miles of the Iguazu River. Along with hundreds of beautiful waterfalls, the region is also home to a wide variety of wildlife from howler monkeys, toucans, giant anteaters and much more. You can view the waterfalls by boat, viewing platforms, and more. Get up close and personal by visiting Argentina, or get the best panoramic long-range views from Brazil. If you’re already there why not stay a couple days and do both? Be sure to add this to your list of must-see travel destinations.

    2. Lake Sørvágsvatn, Faroe Islands

      Located in the open ocean somewhere between Iceland and Norway, the Faroe Islands is home to Lake Sørvágsvatn, a beautiful lake that deceives you into believing it is hundreds of feet above the ocean. This lake is a natural optical illusion. With only a steep cliff separating the lake and the ocean, this is one of the many natural phenomenons the world has to offer. Largely untouched, the Faroe Islands offer a multitude of incredible views, waterfalls, and natural wonders to explore both by land and sea. This is one of the world’s best travel destinations that you do not want to miss.

      3. Lake District, England

        Home to the highest mountain, the deepest lake, and the longest lake in England, Lake District is the largest and most popular national park in the country. The entire park is full of rolling hills and glistening lakes that perfectly reflect the trees and mountaintops above them. There are activities for people of all abilities and interests–such as long walks through hundreds of miles of picturesque fairy-tale like scenery, hiking up the mountains, getting out on the water, and even experiencing wildlife in its natural environment. You may even find the red squirrel or wild fell ponies during your stay, making this one of the top travel destinations for the whole family. Lake District, England is an inspiring landscape that has stirred the minds of many famous poets and movie directors–Beatrix Potter, William WordsWorth, and John Ruskin, to name a few. See for yourself why this is one of the most magical destinations that you need to visit in your life.

          Located almost 8,000 feet above sea level, Machu Picchu will make you feel as if you’re in an Indiana Jones movie. High up in the Andes Mountains, this ancient city was built in 1450, then later abandoned. The exact use of this city is a mystery, but you’ll definitely have breathtaking panoramic views of the rugged mountainside as you visit one of the most historical travel destinations in the world. Machu Picchu will give you a taste of Incan history, beautiful scenery, and a great workout from hiking up to the city.

            Preikestolen, also known as “Preacher’s Pulpit” is located in Norway. It is known for having some of the tallest, most jagged cliffs in the world. The Preacher’s Pulpit gets its name for protruding out of the cliffside, having a mere 1,981 foot drop to the bottom. Being one of the scarier travel destinations, Preikestolen is a great place to go to conquer your fear of heights. The segment of rock actually looks like a ginormous pulpit that is 82 by 82 feet. The hike up to the top is about 2.6 miles one way, and you climb 1,082 feet in elevation. You’re also free to explore the cliffside and go just about anywhere you want. When you get to the top, you’ll have a breathtaking view of Norway’s landscape. You may even find people taking the faster way down by jumping off Preikestolen with their wing suit.

            6. Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

              Fit for a king, this castle looks like it holds a princess in the highest room of the tallest tower. You can go see the princess for yourself because Neuschwanstein Castle is open to the public. Starting construction in 1869 for King Ludwig II, the reclusive king intended the castle to be used as a personal getaway. Immediately after his death the castle was opened to the public. Now there are over a million people that visit the castle annually, making it one of the most beautiful and popular travel destinations. The castle is awe-inspiring with mountainous views and mind-boggling interior. Your mind is sure to run wild and re-live your childhood fantasies of being a princess, or a king.

              7. Tulip Fields, Holland

                Holland has the perfect weather for growing tulips, and if you go between the end of March and two weeks into May then you’ll experience millions of colorful tulips all around you. From the sky, the landscape is a blast of colors that are woven together by seams of asphalt. On the ground you can meander along through the gardens and open fields by car, bicycle, or on foot. This is one of the best spring-time travel destinations. The best place to experience the tulip season is Keukenhof Garden, which alone has over 7 million flower bulbs and 800 different varieties. The tulips are also accompanied by a tranquil pond, soft grass, trees, and more to awaken all of your senses.

                The world has an endless amount of magical travel destinations that we are dying to see. Even if you were to see something new every day for your entire life you wouldn’t even scratch the surface of all this world has to offer. Just in your own country there’s an endless supply of bucket-list worthy travel destinations. Whether you book a flight half-way across the world or just visit somewhere in your own back yard, get out there and see as much as you can.
