Going on a trip can be an exciting way to see new things, meet different people, enjoy breathtaking views, and try activities you have never done before. Whether you go on a city break, a road trip, or a beach vacation, you can have the time of your life – that is, if you choose the right destination.
If you want to have an exciting trip but don’t know where to go, we’ve got your back. In this article, you will find 5 ideas for a trip of your life, ranging from climbing Kilimanjaro mountain and trekking to Machu Picchu to going to the Death Valley and visiting Norway’s hidden gems. Read on and start planning your next trip.
If you are looking for ideas for an adventure of a lifetime, then Kilimanjaro is the ideal choice for you. Africa’s highest peak is a popular destination for mountaineers and trekkers, but if you are not yet in shape for a mountain climbing challenge, you can go on a guided hike.
You can climb Kilimanjaro in around 10 days, and it can be costly, though not as expensive as a climb to Everest. Still, you need to be prepared to pay around $2,000 for a trip to Kilimanjaro. But if you think that a mountain climbing trip is out of your reach, don’t give up! A Kilimanjaro hiking trip is still a great way to create unforgettable memories and meet new people.
West Coast Road Trip
If you want to see the best of the United States, then the West Coast is an excellent choice for a road trip. From San Francisco, take Highway 1 all the way down to Los Angeles, stopping at many iconic places along the way.
One of the best things about this trip is that you have plenty of options for accommodation: in addition to hotels and hostels, there are also campsites and more unusual ways to stay overnight like yurts or colorful wooden houses. As for food and drinks, you can try different cuisines in every state, especially seafood in Oregon and Washington. Be prepared for the good weather: this is one of the few regions in the U.S. where it doesn’t rain much, so you should be able to soak up the sun all day long.
Trekking Machu Picchu
In Peru, Machu Picchu is one of the most popular destinations for tourists, and with good reason: it is a truly majestic place that offers both breathtaking views and unique architecture. It is also one of the most accessible ancient ruins: while it is not as easy as visiting Rome or Paris, you don’t need to have special skills or training for this trip. However, if you want to do it right, you will need at least 2 weeks – not only to see Machu Picchu but also to explore the surrounding area.
Expenses are usually higher than in other parts of Peru, largely due to the fact that there are fewer public buses going up there. The easiest way to get there is by train from Cusco; otherwise, you will need a rented car or private transportation. If you choose the train option, then look into booking your ticket as soon as possible since tickets tend to sell out quickly due to popular demand. While in Cusco, make sure to visit Ollantaytambo, one of the most beautiful Inca ruins in South America.
Visit Norway’s Hidden Gems
If you love the Northern Lights but don’t want to visit Lofoten or Lapland (which are also great destinations), then Norway’s hidden gems are another great option for you. These gems are places that offer spectacular views but are not as popular with travelers, so you will have more space for yourself and better chances of seeing the lights in their full glory.
Some of these gems include Herdla Island near Bergen (which gives an amazing view of the city) and Kvaløya Island near Tromsø (where you can see the lights dancing over the open sea). You should know that these places are not close to big cities, so finding accommodation can be tricky – but if you manage it, you will have no regrets about it!
The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China might be the most famous manmade structure in the world: it is a wonder of human ingenuity that has been standing tall for centuries despite being exposed to harsh weather conditions and erosion. If you want to see it for yourself, then make sure that you book your tour at least a month in advance since tickets often sell out fast – especially if you plan on visiting during peak season (May-September).
And if you are not into crowds, then visit after October when most tourists have gone home; also keep in mind that it can get really cold during winter so bring warm clothes and a hat with earflaps!
If you want to have the time of your life, then these 5 destinations are great places to visit. From mountain climbing and road trips to hidden gems and mystical ancient ruins, you will not be disappointed by these trips.
And if you are not sure where to start, we recommend that you go on a trip to the West Coast: it is relatively easy to plan and book, offers plenty of scenic views and activities, and no matter what your preferences are, you are guaranteed to have an adventure of a lifetime.
