The Most Incredible Naturally Beautiful Scenes From Around The World

If there’s one thing you don’t get to enjoy very often these days, it’s naturally beautiful scenes. Many things are man made these days, which means we’re not usually struck with awe at something so naturally beautiful that we have to stop and stare. However, there are a few places around the world that are still largely unspoiled and naturally beautiful.

To give you a good idea, here are some of the most naturally beautiful scenes:

Volcanic Eruptions, Stromboli, Italy

Stromboli is a small volcanic island, with several hundred inhabitants. Most volcanoes are not constantly spitting things out, but this one is. Lava fountains, gas, and ash are all dispersed and don’t seem to deter the brave people that live here. This is a great place for those on a day trip who would like to see the lava up close. Looking at night is almost like a firework display!

Geirangerfjord and Naeroyfjord, Norway

Geirangerfjord and Naeroyfjord are the two fjords that you should visit if you simply don’t want to go through them all. These two are the world’s longest and deepest, lined by high vertical cliffs, with deep waters and waterfalls. They are truly a sight to behold, and are both on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Kakadu National Park, Australia

Kakadu Nationalpark will make you feel like you’ve gone back in time. The rock art (created by actual aborigines), waterfalls, crocodiles, and bird life tend to take visitor’s breath away. Going on one of the kakadu tours is probably the safest way to explore. This national park is home to one third of Australia’s bird species, with at least 60 of them found in the wetlands.

For over 40,000 years, Aboriginal people lived here, and painted their fascinating tales onto the rocks.

The Northern Lights: Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Canada

The Northern Lights, Aka Aurora borealis, can only be viewed in certain spots from around the world – if you get to see it at all. There’s always a chance you won’t spot it if you go, and sometimes, even those who do go back for more. The glowing green/blue lights illuminate the sky, and forever imprint on the minds of those who see it.

We see these incredible lights thanks to something called Sunspot activity – it’s all very sciencey. Sunspot activity reaches a peak – or solar maximum – typically every 11 years in accordance with the solar cycle. During this time northern lights sightings are expected to be particularly intense.

Banff National Park, Banff, Canada

This national park is a wonder all on its own. The mountain peaks and wildlife set in the Rockies are like none other you’ve seen before, stretching over 4,000 square miles. Here, you can hike, raft, canoe, or just enjoy the sites.

Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada and New York

Sure, you’ll find lots of tourists here, but this is a natural beauty you can’t miss. The vastness of the scene can be hard to take in, with it being 176 feet tall in places, and pushing 150,000 gallons of water per second. It can make the perfect trip for a family who want to explore and see some beautiful natural sights.

What breathtaking places have you seen or would like to see. I know all of these are on my list for sure.

  4. This is making me so jealous I really need to start travelling or just find some time for it, loving all the photos so amazing.

  5. You have an incredible list of beautiful places to visit but since you asked: I will like to visit Bora Bora island. It is an island which began as a volcano, but has subsequently evolved into a barrier reef. As a barrier reef it offers a protective sanctuary. I also boasts of pristine clear blue water. I’ve been hearing about Bora Baora for long time and would like to visit someday.
