Wrapped up in your sleeping bag, you know as soon as the night falls you will enjoy hours of this magical light show. An once in a lifetime experience!

2. Galagapos islands >> Bucketlist trips

The  Galagapos Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean, nearby South America. Why you’ll want to go here? Because you will find unique species of animals and plants found nowhere else in the world. So exotic! The most important islands are among others San Cristóbal, Isabela and Fernandina.  These islands are super far into the ocean, what the journey towards it is even a great adventure!

3. Machu Picchu >> Bucketlist trips

High in the Peruvian mountains lies one of the oldest cities in the country, Machu Picchu. A city built by the Incas and so hidden in the mountains, that it has never been found by the Spaniards when they conquered Peru. For that reason, the city has never been destroyed and you can still discover a lot about how the Incas lived then. Like walking on an ancient film set!

4. England in the fall >> Bucketlist trips

It may sound strange, but England in the fall is really a must see. The orange colored trees, fresh air, that cozy feeling when you drink a hot chocolate at a local pub; delicious! And also convenient: close to home!

Clear blue lakes, snowcapped mountains, vast pampas full of large birds, guanacos and rheas and an ever-changing view. If you’re going touring through Patagonia, then all your expectations will be surpassed. The area stretches across Chile and Argentina and is indispensable for the real wanderlusters.

7. Great Ocean Road >> Bucketlist trips

Do you love roadtrips? The roadtrip along the Great Ocean Road appears to be amazing. Travel along the coast of Australia, from Melbourne to Adelaide, and enjoy the view! Can you see yourself cruising in a cool camper?

8. Easter Island >> Bucketlist trips

An island in the Pacific Ocean which now serves as a model for the entire planet. Because Easter Island was once forested, but there is not much left of the amazing forests. The tribes there have exhausted all resources and therefore Easter Island is often used as an example for the rest of the world. However, history is not the only thing that makes this island special. They are the more than 800 Moai statues scattered across the island that will amaze you. These statues are from the 11th century and are still in full glory on the island!
