Have you ever stumbled upon a photo or video of a place that looks so beautiful that it simply can’t be real? As you can imagine, these places are even more breathtaking in real life. So let’s take a quick trip to a few of these places, you know, through our words, and then you can be the judge of where your next adventure lands you.

If you’re into chasing waterfalls, then you’ll want to get to Skogafoss, Iceland. You’ll notice that in most of the pictures you’ll see a rainbow or two, and guess what? Those are totally real and visible to the naked eye. There are tours that will take you to the top of the waterfall for the ultimate views, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can venture up there yourself. Something to keep in mind if you plan on visiting, like many of the bathrooms in Switzerland, there will (probably) be a small price to pay.

First things first, a fjord is a long, deep, narrow body of water that reaches far inland. And Norway has one of the most spectacular ones. And lucky for you, it’s one of the easiest fjords to visit, located much closer than most. You can take in breathtaking views on a number of trails and climb the world’s longest wooden staircase. If you prefer activities that are a bit more relaxing, then hop aboard a sightseeing cruise, then just sit back, relax, and take it all in.

If you’re looking for a winder wonderland kinda getaway, then Zermatt, Switzerland is where you should go. You’ll feel like you’re inside of a snowglobe and probably never want to leave. While visiting Zermatt, you’ll notice a massive mountain, the tenth highest one in Switzerland, in fact. A lot of people have died trying to climb this mountain, as it’s extremely difficult to climb, so we recommend just admiring her from a distance.
Ruyi Bridge, China

Here’s a place for adventure seekers to check out! This bridge in China is a bending glass-bottomed structure that makes you feel as though you’re floating in the sky, so if you have a fear of heights, we suggest you get over that before visiting. The design of this bridge was inspired by the “ruyi” shape, which is curved and symbolizes both power and good luck.
