Everyone would agree that turning 30 is a huge milestone. Make your journey towards this great milestone an epic one by going on many adventurous trips.
Here is our pick of the 6 amazing destinations around the world that you must see before you turn 30:
Machu Picchu, Peru
A place that requires no filter to enhance its landscapes, Machu Picchu is simply breath-taking. A trip around this Inca city nestled in the Andes Mountain would introduce you to symmetrical historical sites, llamas resting on the grasslands, rolling hills, gushing streams, and ruins of the centuries gone by. Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known as a hiker’s paradise. ‘Why was Machu Picchu built?’ is a question that runs through the mind of every traveller. It’s the mystery of Machu Picchu that attracts millions of tourists from across the world. Visit this place and find out if you can solve the mystery.
GoFro Tip: Try the Huayna Picchu and Inka Trail if you love challenging hiking trails.
We live in a cynical world that has stopped believing in magic. However, the ex-imperial city of Marrakech not only believes in magic but also celebrates it. Surround yourself with love, beauty, magic, and madness by flying to this Moroccan city. Visit the Djemaa el Fna local market to witness the acts of Berger dance and music performers, snake charmers, and acrobats. Few of the places that you could visit are the Majorelle Garden, Royal Palace of Marrakech, and Medina of Marrakech.
GoFro Tipp: Don’t leave without the authentic hammam (Turkish bath) experience. Hammam Dar el-Bacha is Marrakech’s largest traditional bath house.
The capital city of Cuba is eccentrically beautiful. With a rich history, thriving art culture, trendy cafes, and offbeat bars, the Havana experience should be ticked off from your bucket list before you touch 30. The 16th century Castillo de la Real Fuerza, Museum of the Revolution, Old Havana, Malecón Beach, and writer Ernest Hemingway’s former house, Finca Vigía, should be on your Havana itinerary.
GoFro Tip: Take a drive around Havana by renting out one of the Vintage Cars.
The Grand Canyon, Arizona
Are you looking for a demanding yet fulfilling travel experience? If so, then the hiking trails of The Grand Canyon in Arizona would leave you equally exhausted and satisfied. Rim Trail is ideal for those looking for an easy hiking route. The ones that can handle steep and challenging trails could try Bright Angel, South Kaibab, and Hermit Trail. Grandview Trail is suitable for experienced desert hikers as it is very steep. Havasu Waterfalls Hike is absolutely worth the effort.
GoFro Tip: Instead of walking around, we suggest rafting on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon for a surreal experience.
Northern Lights! Need we say more? Travel to Reykjavik in Iceland to see the bright, colourful, dancing lights in the sky, which are commonly referred to as the ‘Aurora’ or ‘Northern Lights’. This natural phenomenon is nature’s magic. While searching for the aurora, you could also visit the Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral, National Museum of Iceland, and Golden Circle.
GoFro Tip: Take a dip in the geothermal waters at Laugardalslaug at Laugardalur Park.
To Sua Ocean Trench, Samoa
While you might have seen plenty of beaches, lakes, and swimming pools, we bet you have never seen a swimming place like the To Sua Ocean Trench. This incredible, natural, deep swimming pool in Samoa is a by-product of the volcanic eruptions on the island. Climbing down the 98-foot-deep natural pool with the help of a ladder is an experience difficult to describe in words. With crystal blue water, well-maintained gardens, and picturesque coastal views, take a picnic basket along to relax by the pool.
GoFro Tip: For those who are not confident swimmers, there is a wooden platform where you can sit and relax.
