Extraordinary landscapes have cemented Iceland’s place as an adventurer’s playground. If you’re really feeling adventurous, take the dive between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The plates are slowly drifting apart and are fed by glacial waters and everything is cast in a liquid blue. If you’re feeling daring, visit Iceland between May and October as the dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano opens. You can walk under the surface of the earth in the volcano’s magma chamber.
If you want to see the Northern Lights, head to Iceland between mid-September and April, where there are fully dark nights.
When visiting Savusavu in Fiji, staying at Namale Resort & Spa – sprawled across a gorgeous cliff overlooking the Koro Sea, Namale Resort & Spa is the definition of paradise. Named the most romantic resort in the South Pacific, this luxurious adult-only resort was selected as part of “Oprah’s Favourite Things” and played host to The Bachelorette. The resort oozes with romance and guests have access to private villas, 5-course meals, walks to nearby rushing waterfalls, private dinners, luxurious spa treatments, wide range of activities, and more.
Cappadocia is often described as something made for a fantasy movie, with towering, psychedelic rock formations. The best and most exciting way to experience Cappadocia’s unique landscape is floating in a hot air balloon. Every morning, around 100 balloons take off at the same time, creating a surreal and magical sky.
Visit Kaymakli, as it is one of 36 underground cities in the region built thousands of years ago. Half is open to the public to explore underground churches, storage rooms, kitchen, wineries, and more.
If you want to try the local cuisine, indulge in a “pottery kebab,” which is a style of kebab that involves slow-cooking meat inside a sealed clay pot. Once it’s cooked, the waiter will break the pot open in front of you.
