7. Turquoise Ice, Lake Baikal, Russia
Another exciting spot for everyone who loves winter. Lake Baikal is the world's largest freshwater lake. In the winter, you can see 130 feet below the ice because it is so clear. On a sunny day, the light reflects off of cracks in the ice, resulting in beautiful turquoise shards.
8. Lake Natron, Tanzania
Although Lake Natron is beautiful, it is not a place you will want to swim. The water has such a high pH that it burns the skin and eyes. It is still a sight to see due to its blood red color from bacteria that grows on its surface.
9. Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland
Where the land ends, the causeway begins. Dating back millions of years, these near-perfect hexagon tubes have an interesting legend. Many believe that an Irish giant used this causeway as a path to teach a Scottish Giant a lesson. It is unclear who won the epic battle, but it is clear that this site is one to see.
10. Wisteria Flower Tunnel, Japan
Taking a stroll through this enchanting scene is like nothing you will ever experience. The tunnel is covered with different colored flowers as if it is straight out of a painting. Hopefully you aren’t allergic to pollen.
11. Patagonia Marble Caves, Chile
These color-changing caves are definitely a breathtaking sight. The caves were formed by thousands of years of waves crashing inside this marble formation, creating smooth walls. The water reflects onto the cave walls, and depending on the water level and the season. To see this dancing display of color, you have to take a 30-minute boat ride.
12. Skaftafell Ice Cave, Iceland
If you love a light hike and cold weather, this ice cave should be at the top of your travel list. The Skaftafell Ice Cave is part of a large glacier and once inside you can experience the calming blue light from above and the feeling of being in a giant natural freezer.
