National Parks – 4 More Beautiful Choices to Visit
National Parks are some of the most beautiful places in the world to travel to, hosting the full brilliance of nature within their boundaries. We’ve already taken a look at some of the most beautiful National Parks you will find in the world and, if that wasn’t enough, here are some to add to your travel list.
Cinque Terre National Park in Italy
From Monterosso al Mare in the north to Riomaggiore in the south, this string of five colourful seaside towns runs along Italy’s Ligurian coast and hosts multiple panoramic trails that run from village to village. It’s truly a walker’s paradise.
If you’re feeling a bit fatigued from all the trekking about, we recommend taking a break at one of the area’s many parasol-dotted beaches and enjoying a lunch of the local delicacy, trofie al pesto.
Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park in Japan
Mount Fuji is often said to be one of the most beautiful places in the world and, situated at the foot of this mighty volcano lies one of the most popular destinations in the world. Within this impressive National Park, you’ll find the hot-spring Hakone and the five lakes of Fuji. During the spring and summer months, the wildflowers in the area create a scenery of world-class painting brought to life with a vibrancy of colour like no other.
Jasper National Park in Canada
This is the largest national park you’ll find in Canada and though its popularity pales a bit in comparison to Banff, home of Lake Louise, Jasper proves to be far richer with its wildlife. From coyotes, moose, grizzly bears, bald eagles and Canada geese, the fauna of the area are quite a sight to behold. Also, if you’re up for a little road trip, ride along the Icefield Parkway from Banff to Jasper for the most amazing snow-capped scenery.
Wadi Rum Protected Area in Jordan
Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon, is located in southern Jordan, about 60 miles south of the ancient city of Petra. It’s been the setting for many space movies, including The Martian and The Last Days on Mars, due to its desert landscape. Traditional Bedouin camps, as well as futuristic bubble tents, are dotted throughout the desert, and it’s worth spending some time here overnight.
