The world is a huge place with many amazing places to visit. Whether you’re looking for the most picturesque scenery, or just want to see as much of it as possible. No matter what your preference may be, there are some spots that you can easily go without visiting them and still have an amazing time.
Here are 5 destinations around the world that are not so popular but should be considered for your next trip.
5. The Faroe Islands
Location: North Atlantic Ocean, between Iceland and Scotland
A beautiful archipelago consisting of 18 islands, the Faroe Islands are an autonomous nation within the Kingdom of Denmark. They are well known for their incredible vistas which you can admire from one of the many scenic viewpoints around the area. And if you’re looking for some adventure, go cliff-diving or hiking up one of the many mountains around the area.
4. Svartifoss in Skaftafell National Park
Location: Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland
Skaftafell is a beautiful national park located in south-eastern Iceland and is the fourth largest national park in the country. The park has several breathtaking waterfalls including Svartifoss, which is one of my personal favorites with its contrasting black basalt columns against a backdrop of ominous clouds.
3. La Perouse Bay, Saipan
Location: South Pacific Ocean
Located in the northern region of the United States Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, La Perouse Bay is a hidden gem. It’s a pleasant place that serves as a popular vacation spot for locals and tourists alike. The bay has stunning views, with lush surroundings accompanied by the soothing sound of the waves crashing into the rocky shoreline.
2. Deception Island
Location: Antarctic Peninsula
Another amazing destination found in the Kingdom of Denmark, Deception Island is a top tourist site for cruise liners. With rugged terrain and sloping beaches, you’ll have an unforgettable experience hiking around the island’s many sights. You can also do some wildlife watching as fur seals are commonly seen along the shores. And if that doesn’t convince you, the island has an actual volcano located within it.
Location: Reykjanes Peninsula
The most popular destination in Iceland is without a doubt its capital, Reykjavík. It’s often referred to as one of the smallest yet most developed cities in the world and you can see why when you visit Reykjavík. The views are stunning, the locals are friendly, and it’s a good place to start your trip in Iceland if you’re not into roughing it up with camping or other activities involving extreme weather conditions.
In conclusion, those 5 locations are some of the least popular but most amazing destinations in the world. So go ahead and pack your bags as you don’t want to miss out on these great experiences.
