Visiting Galapagos is unlike anything else! Even if you have no interest in history, science, or Charles Darwin, it’s worth visiting it and exploring the marvelous islands. People who love wildlife and nature can find the mecca of bundled beauty and incredible biodiversity on this piece of land.

To visit the most remote and isolated islands, you can take a small boat tour and check the best hiking spots, untouched by human nature and see endemic species that live only on these islands. Along the journey, you can take Darwin’s footsteps and explore the land where Darwin himself saw the genetic adaptations of the species and conceived the theory of evolution.
Greenland is famous for the Arctic Circle which makes it one of the best summer holiday destinations. It’s a perfect venue for a boat trip that takes you through the icebergs and greets you with walruses, whales, and other sea creatures.
While many might find it odd to choose Greenland as a summer destination for a holiday, it’s a unique place to spend your free time and explore something different and marvelous. The best time of the year to visit Greenland is June through September.
Since the nights are shorter and the days are long, you will have more time to spend on extracurricular snow activities like snowboarding, sledding, skiing, ice skating, etc. The most famous places to visit in Greenland include: Nuuk, Disko Bug, Kangerlussuaq, and Ilulissat.

You’d get to witness the skies filled with balloons and people enjoying the birds eye views of Cappadocia while ravishing through the blue, endless sky. You’ll be blown away by the caves, underground cities, and ravines and wish that you can stay forever.
