Iceland is famous for having one of the most unique landscapes on the planet. Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, and the surrounding area offers visitors volcanoes, geysers, and a stunning variety of wildlife, which include humpback whales, dolphins, porpoises, and puffins. There’s also the opportunity to go whale watching, or to see the colorful but dormant 120 meter Thrihnukagigur volcano close up – by being lowered down into it! While in Pingvellir National Park you have the chance to go caving or snorkeling.

With mountain gorillas critically endangered seeing these majestic animals in the wild is an experience never to be forgotten. This is, though, really only an adventure for people who are not daunted by some serious walking. Consequently, it’d also be wise to take out holiday insurance just in case of injury. But seeing gorillas in either the Mgahinga Gorilla Park, or the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, will certainly make all the effort worthwhile.
The free six kilometre Bondi Beach to Coogee Walk will allow you to see some of Sydney’s most famous beaches, and view Sculpture by the Sea, also for free, if you visit the city in the spring. Bondi Beach has also long been one of the favorite haunts for surfers. Beginner surfers can be given lessons, while the more experienced surfers can also improve their skills via surfing classes. The Sydney Harbor Bridge offers great views of the city, but taking a cable car across the nearby Blue Mountains is an even more memorable experience. The Blue Mountains are visited by campers, hikers, and abseilers, and more hardy souls can attempt to walk up the breathtaking Three Sisters Rock.
