Grand Canyon, USA

Arguably the most impressive canyon in the world, the Grand Canyon was carved out over millions of years by the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon is 446 kilometers long, and visitors can see stunning views of the layered details and carved-out rocks from almost any point along the rim, especially on a clear day. The canyon stretches as far as the eye can see, and intrepid hikers can climb down into the canyon for an amazing series of hikes and boat rides.

Trolltunga, Norway

Trolltunga (Troll’s Tongue) is one of the most jaw-dropping scenic lookouts in the world. Erosion has carved out a narrow jetty of rock that juts out of the mountain 700 meters above the earth. Visitors to the site can see Lake Ringedalsvatnet winding through the mountains and glaciers in the distance. The Trolltunga is the culmination of an 8 to 10 hour journey through the Skjeggedal region, taking hikers through the stunning mountains, glaciers and fjords of Norway.

Bagan, Myanmar

Bagan is an archaeological preserve located in Myanmar, and is the site of the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Pagan. It is the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples and pagodas in the world, with many dating from between the 9th and 13th centuries. The sheer quantity and variety of ruins is stunning, set against a backdrop of ancient trees. Visitors who want to see as much as possible can rent a horse-cart, bike, or even take a hot air balloon ride over the ruins.
