9 Travel Experiences To Add To Your List

The time has come for vacation again. You are making your list of all the places you would like to go and visit. There are certain things that you would like to experience and you have added them to your list. Here are a few unique experiences to make sure are on that bucket list of travel.

Swing over the end of the world

That’s right. There is a place that’s nicknamed “the end of the world.” In the town of Banow, Ecuador there is a station that’s held over Mount Tungurahua. It is a crater to an active volcano. Visitors can enjoy themselves with the sight as they swing over the crater.

Go back in time

There are many places in the world that show historical significance. The site of Machu Picchu is one of those places. It is a place that draws not only history buffs but hikers as well. The massive citadel was built hundreds of years ago in the Andes Mountains. It is a place where many hikers travel to not only for the sites but the tedious climb and challenges it offers. The beautiful views at the top are worth every step.

Wildlife at its best

There is nothing more spectacular than seeing wildlife up close and personal. The best experiences found are throughout Africa on a Safari. There are many places that offer tours and guides to take a safari. In today’s time tourists in Africa have the opportunity to travel many ways. They can take a safari on foot, jeep or even horseback to visit the beauty found only in Africa.

Healing in Iceland

The Blue Lagoon is a place that’s found in Iceland. It is a man made spa that features a huge lagoon filled with beautiful blue sea water. The heated water is naturally infused with algae and minerals. Because of this many say that the lagoon has many healing powers as well.

The lovely thermal waters of Iceland’s understandably famous Blue Lagoon. Paradise.

Ski on live rock

Many of us have made that family trip to the ski lodge. Days spent out snowboarding in the snow and nights by the roaring fireplace. There is a place in Nicaragua but that you can do some boarding. It isn’t in snow though. Instead, you will find an active volcano called Cerro Negro. In the city of Leon, tourists can take sled rides or snowboard down the huge slope of the mountain at 2388 feet. It is a once in a lifetime treat for all those who want the joy of snowboarding without the cold.

Swim with the Fishes

The Australian coast is home to the largest barrier reef in the world. It is beautiful and has over 1600 miles of beautiful coral gardens and sea-life. A sight that is not found anywhere else. It attracts both novice and experienced scuba divers year round.

Take a Gondola

The beautiful town of Venice, Italy is home to narrow streets and canals. At every corner, there are small cafes and shops that you will want to see. The best experience is to travel as many tourists do. Take a gondola ride during the day for some shopping or have a romantic night on the water as well.

See the lights

This is one sight that you will not want to miss. The Northern Borealis is one of the most remarkable sights to see. There are many places to see them from Alaska to Canada, Norway, and Sweden.

Walk the great wall

The building of the great wall of China began in the 7th century BC. It is one of the largest and oldest structures in the world. Its defense and magnificent structure made from lime, tiles, and stone. It’s definitely a trek that is worth the time.

Throughout history, there have been many places built or formed to include on the list. Many places aren’t listed here. Some are the castles in Germany, the vineyards in Italy, the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls and more. They are all great destinations every traveler should experience at least once.

    Some great ideas here, such a good mix of natural wonders, history and culture. I haven’t had chance to tick many of these off my list yet..the northern lights is probably my top choice though!

  • Lisa says:

    These are some great travel experiences to add to the list! I’d love to see Nicaragua and see the volcanoes and landscape there. I have to disagree with Venice and the gondolas; the place is beautiful, the gondolas are a con for travellers!

  • Dada says:

    There are some of the activities I have added to my wish list travel like snowboarding down on the active volcano Cerro Negro! Wow what an experience that must be! Walking on the great wall of China has been a dream of mine for awhile now and aswell seeing the northern light! Must I am not too saf because I know I will do them one day! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • You have some really nice points on this list. I have visited the Blue Lagoon adn loved it, I also saw the Northern Lights and managed to get a express ride on a Gondola in Venice that costed less than your average, over-priced, touristy ride. I’d love to visit Machu Picchu, though. Looks like a beautiful place!

  • Judy says:

  • Heidi says:

    Nice ideas to add to the bucket list. Iceland is on the top of my list right now so the healing pools and the Northern lights are at the top of must do things. Wow and snowboarding on a volcano, that is a must!!!

  • Jaypee says:

    Northern lights, Blue lagoon and Safari in Africa are in my list hoping I can tick them off next year! Scheduled to climb great wall this April, I’m excited! Taking a gondola ride is the least exciting for me because I don’t have someone to share it with. haha

  • Soraya says:

    These all sounds like great ideas to consider for your bucket list. I would love to one day visit Iceland and see the Blue Lagoon – that has been on my list. And the End of the World sound fascinating, although I think of Antartica when I think of End of the World. But the one items that is so high up on my list are the Northern Lights – totally yes!! Great list.

  • You definitely covered all corners of world! Made me realize how many things I haven’t seen. Thanks for sharing a broad range of travel interests.
