When people hear the word “vacation,” they often think of tropical white sand beaches and plenty of sunshine. However, there is a whole world out there beyond those places. This applies particularly to the northern part of the planet, which has some of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. If you are up for an adventure, check out the following three locales.
This state is the northernmost one in America. It is also the largest, which means there are plenty of things to do when you want to get away from home and work for a little while. You can go on a world-class guide fishing Ketchikan AK tour where you will have the opportunity to catch salmon, halibut and trout. There are also National Parks scattered throughout the region such as Denali, the highest mountain in North America.
This country is most known for its majestic fjords. You can actually take a cruise where you will meander through the waters as the rock formations tower overhead. If nature is not your thing, you can hunker down in the capital city of Oslo. Although it is not as well known as other European metropolitan areas such as London and Paris, this Scandinavian city has plenty to offer. The Viking Ship Museum, Aker Brygge and the Royal Palace are all on the menu.
This small nation is considered one of the best places to see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis as it is otherwise known. With Iceland’s capital of Reyjavik as your launching point, you want to see as much of the country as possible. You could rent a bike and see the mountains and volcanos from the road if you are highly athletic. If not, cars are perfectly suited to get you to the Blue Lagoon hot baths and the Gullfoss waterfall.
There are so many wonderful regions to explore that it might hurt your brain. Don’t waste any opportunity to go out and explore the vast world.
