Our world is filled with breathtaking natural wonders and new places are found every day, uncovering new, interesting species, incredible natural formations, always stunning our senses with a new level of beauty that literally takes our breath away.
Imagine if we hadn’t started to address saving the environment (and continue to do so); future generations would miss out on experiencing the Earth’s beauty, a splendor that is so incredible that it’s almost hard to believe it exists. Following are just a few of some the most breathtaking places on Earth
The Travertine Pools of Pamukkale, Turkey
The mystical looking Travertine Pools of Pamukkale are counted among the most awe inspiring places on earth and mysterious as well because they have a uniquely ethereal look. Over the centuries, white travertine mineral deposits have developed in this area of Pamukkale’s hot springs, creating a collection of pristine, blindingly white terraces that lead to extraordinary terraced pools filled with crystal blue waters. This exceptional area has been enjoyed for approximately 2,000 years and is sure to be around for many more.
Fiji’s Lau Archipelago
When it comes to the natural wonders of Mother Nature, most of us define natural beauty as spectacular sunsets; Fiji’s Lau Archipelago is known for its mind blowing sunrises. Located 200 miles away from Fiji’s mainland, this remote collection of over 50 islands and atolls sees few tourists, however anyone who makes it there is rewarded by the beautiful surroundings and unbelievable variety of marine life.
Just as intoxicating as the natural beauty and wildlife are the welcoming islanders who begin and end every day singing.
Fjordlands National Park, New Zealand
Fjordlands National Park is one of New Zealand’s largest, and achieved the honor of being called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Rudyard Kipling.

The entire area is filled with astounding beauty and definitely deserves being counted along with some of the most breathtaking places on Earth. The North and South Islands actually played the part of Middle Earth in the filming of the popular Tolkien’s Lord of the Ring collection.
