These five destinations are in breathtaking places that excite every traveler. From the lunar landscape of Hawaii, the exotic beauty of Peru to the tallest dunes in the world in Namibia! Spectacular trails and wild ascents for one reason only, to enjoy the breathtaking view!

Volcanoes National Park – Big Island, Hawaii

It is a World Heritage Site of UNESCO and that is not unfairly! This lunar landscape consists of igneous peaks and rivers of lava. It is the most eerie volcanic pandemonium in the planet with craters that are easily accessible. If you manage to last the 240 km of hiking you will be rewarded with extra-terrestrial views in this landscape.

Canopy Walkway – Iquitos, Peru

A place that hikers will love and especially the fearless kind! So to enjoy this spectacle of exotic and generous nature from above, you have to pass through this passage of 500 meters. This may sound easy but it is definately not! It is so extremely difficult to pass it that only researchers had managed to cross it until recently.

Kilimanjaro – Tanzania

Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa, is a mountain that is not part of a mountain range but the tallest mountain on Earth. It is a landscape that can’t be exluded from the list. If you love climbing, its wild climb of 5,895 meters will certainly not leave you indifferent and the panoramic views of the untamed savannah will be the gift of achieving it.

Sossusvlei – Namibia

This landscape seems breathtaking and the dunes are tallest and oldest on the planet! They are reaching 300 meters in height. This means that if you can not stand watching its fascination from afar and wish to climb it once in your life, you will understand that the ascent is not that simple! It said that it is 2.5 times more difficult to climb than any other surface. But if you are so determined to do it anyway, the perfect time to do so is at dawn. Dreamy colors show their magnificence just then.
