There are quite a few top 10 tourist destinations or places you have to visit blog posts out there. I myself am guilty of publishing one or two of them.
But as much as I like to think of myself as a digital nomad, I cannot (yet) boast the experience of a travel expert.
That’s why I compiled the top travel destinations that experts recommend. Buckle your seatbelt and get ready for la crème de la crème!
It’s probably one of these countries you think is too cold to be enjoyable. Think again. Iceland’s waterfalls rival the Niagara’s and it boasts the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull. The capital, Reykjavik, lets you see the sea and neighboring hills from its heart, in Hallgrimskirkja church.
Ok, names tend to be complicated, I’ll give you that. But that wasn’t enough to outrank Iceland from the top of Fodor’s Travel’s Hot Spots to Visit in Europe. The Blue Lagoon is a paradise in itself, where you can swim in warm waters while surrounded by the snow.
I mean, there IS a reason for travel blogger Britney Fitzgerald to qualify Iceland as “nothing less than enchanting”, right? The travel expert went on a road trip there and shared what you need to know about Iceland, should you want to follow in her footsteps. And I suppose that it’s one of every Instagram fanatic to add a picture of Iceland’s black sand beaches to their account. It’s one of mine anyway.
What about free diving in the world’s clearest waters like Kiki Bosch?
The savviest travelers argue about the best vacation spots you should visit in Canada, but they NEVER question whether the Lumberjack Country is worth it. It is.
Canada even tops Lonely Planet’s Top Countries to visit. You might want to head there for its unbelievably welcoming people or its lively cities. On Quora, the vacations guide Sivakumar recommends taking a look at the iconic CN Tower of Toronto and a detour by the Old Quebec.
