It’s no secret that the world is filled with geological wonders that seem like they were created by man. If you’re an adventurous traveler and you want to cross off the best vacation spots from your bucket list, you don’t want to miss the last part of our countdown.
1. Engabreen Glacier, Norway
At first, you might see just a huge rock, but the edge of the Engabreen Glacier is a real natural wonder to behold. Located in Norway, this glacier shows an impressive twisted rock structure that has seen the passage of time. Definitely one of the best places to travel in Europe and the world.
2. Sandymouth Beach, Cornwall, England
With an appearance that makes it seem like it was perfectly carved by a machine, Sandymouth Beach has thousands of geological formations in reddish and gray tones. This formation is located in Cornwall county, in England.
3. Sarakiniko Cave, Milos Island, Greece
If you’re looking for one of the best vacation spots where you can take breathtaking pictures for your Instagram, Sarakiniko Cave is definitely the place to go. This geological structure is a giant cave that “hovers” over the sea in Milos Island, Greece.
4. Namib Desert, Namibia
When you think of geological wonders you might visualize a volcano or mountain, but this place really stands out from the rest. The Namib desert, located in the heart of Namibia, extends for miles and miles of blood-red sands that clash beautifully with the blue ocean.
5. Chartreuse Mountains, Southeastern France
Even though France is one of the best places to travel to due to its cultural importance, there are also natural settings that make it attractive. The Chartreuse Mountains are located in the southeastern side of the French lands and they are oddly shaped and holed in the middle due to wind erosion.
6. Sedimentary Layers of Joseph Fjord, Greenland
An interesting fact about Greenland is that it is the first island on Earth created by the collision of crustal movement. Greenland was originally a seabed continent, and now you can see the sedimentary layers of this process in the area of Joseph Fjord.
7. Red Whale Ridge, Nosy Be, Madagascar
Probably one of the most exotic and best vacation spots in the world is located in Madagascar. The Red Whale Ridge is a rock formation that rises in tall and thin wave-like structures for several miles.
8. Stone Eye in Colorful Canyon, Sinai, Egypt
A real impressive attraction for spiritual people and nature lovers, the Stone Eye is located in the Colorful Canyon, just outside Sinai. The beautiful color scheme of this rock formation has been formed to create the shape of a giant eye.
9. Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland
Located on the Atlantic coast, approximately 80 kilometers northwest of Belfast, is one of the best places to travel in Europe. At this location, thousands of basalt pillars of widely uneven sizes have naturally gathered into a causeway that stretches for thousands of meters.
10. Basalt Pillars, Southern Coast of Iceland
There are also some breathtaking basalt pillars located on the Southern coast of Iceland. You can visit this place in winter and marvel at its sight.
Just like that, we’ve reached the end of our most outstanding geological wonders in the world. All of them are majestic structures that prove just how amazing our planet can be. Which one do you want to see first?
