1. Go on an African Safari in Tanzania
The Serengeti National Park’s safari will take you through the homelands of elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, buffalo and more. Exploring the animals in their natural habitat is humbling, breathtaking and astounding.
2. See the Northern Lights in Iceland
Iceland is considered to have one of the best views of the Northern Lights, and you can enjoy the gorgeous sky while soaking in hot springs. The best time of year to see the lights is from October through February.
3. Skydive Over Fiji
The waters of Fiji are crystal clear, so when you skydive there, you can see the coral reef and the tropical fish through the water as you are soaring downward. There are also many smaller islands around the area that look spectacular from the sky.
4. Swim with Dolphins in Hawaii
In Oahu, you can enjoy swimming with captive dolphins or take a cruise which includes snorkeling with the dolphins. These gentle animals enjoy human interaction, and some will even give hugs.
5. Visit the Pyramids in Egypt
Explore ancient paintings, hieroglyphics and carvings while standing in awe of the great architecture of the pyramids. Be sure to arrive at or before sunrise, not only for the beauty, but also because the sun will get intense later in the day.
6. Experience Zero Gravity
This one is not an exact location, but it is an adventure that is topping bucket lists. We used to think we had to be astronauts to experience zero gravity, but there are places opening all over the world that provide zero gravity simulators.
7. Fly in a Hot Air Balloon Over Myanmar
Hot air balloon rides at sunrise in Bagan, Myanmar are very popular. They float above more than two-thousand temples dating back as far as the ninth century. This view is unlike anywhere else.
8. Scuba Dive in Australia
With many different types of coral, a great diversity of marine life and crystal clear waters, the Great Barrier Reef is definitely the best place to go scuba diving. There are excellent programs for beginner and experienced divers alike.
9. Hike in Machu Picchu, Peru
Machu Picchu sits high in the Andes Mountains. It is known as the lost city of the Inca and boasts sophisticated architecture for the fifteenth century. It was abandoned over four-hundred years ago, but there is so much to see and explore by walking through its ruins.
10. Ride in a Gondola in Venice, Italy
