Top Dream Destinations Around the World


Some of these dream destinations have been on our wish list for a long time. We even asked readers to pick where we should go next. Iceland and Peru were tied and we are working on making both of those trips happen soon (check each destination for an update)! The great thing about wish lists is you can always add more wishes to it. Hopefully our list will inspire you to update your list, and share your favorites with us. We love hearing of new destinations!
Hawaii
A top dream destination for incredible beaches, lush tropical forests, and picture perfect waterfalls. We would add in chasing waterfalls, epic hiking and seeking.
China
High on our wish list is hiking the Great Wall of China, especially the more remote sections. From ancient temples to modern cities China is full of both culture and beauty.
Iceland
A nature lover and photographers dream destination. We want to backpack, explore ice caves, visit waterfalls, and relax in the Blue Lagoon. I think we will have to visit in the winter for Northern Lights and in the summer for backpacking.
Peru
Hiking the classic Inca trail to Machu Picchu, and lesser known hikes like Ausangate trek, and Rainbow Mountain are on our wish list too. Visiting Inca ruins, see the salt mines, tour the Amazon jungle, and of course take some photos with llamas!
New Zealand
The Lord of the Rings hike is on our hike the world wish list! We can’t resist beautiful mountains and turquoise lakes. If hiking isn’t your thing, maybe kayak through Fjords, or visit a Hobbit home!
Patagonia
With many glaciers and gorgeous mountains to hike, the outdoor activities are plentiful. Head to the coast for snorkeling, or kayaking to round out an adventurous trip!
India
The attraction of India for us is seeing its natural beauty and amazing temples. Kerala is all the beauty of India with far fewer people. Add in kayaking, hiking, zip lining and incredible beaches this tropical paradise is for me!
Newfoundland
Number one on Frank’s list, he has family from Newfoundland and heard incredible stories of the country. The beauty of iceberg alley can’t be denied. Of course the chance of seeing moose only makes Frank want to go more.
Australia
There are endless hiking trails on our list in Australia, incredible amounts of wildlife, and cities with great street art. Of course we can’t leave out the great diving opportunities at the Great Barrier Reef!
England
This pick comes from Cathy’s 3 teenage girls. London is tops for both historical architecture and current trends in fashion. I would be very excited to finally see Banksy street art!
