6 Great Vacation Spots for Nature Lovers
Planning for a vacation with exotic landscapes and wild adventures in mind? Or do you have a bucket list to accomplish because you wish to add color to your life? Worry not. We have compiled a list of great vacation spots with exquisite nature sceneries to breathe in. Thank us later.
- Alaska’s Denali National Park
It seems pretty cool and movie kind-of a scene when you are dropped off in the middle of the Alaskan tundra by helicopter or a seaplane. But if you wish to push it up a notch, you can choose to hiking close to a herd of caribou. This national park inhibits up to one million caribou, which is also known as reindeer outside the America. Mid-September is probably the best time to visit. You can stay at Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge or Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. The latter features a great view of the highest peak of North America.
- Florida’s Crystal River
The best time to visit this place is mid-November, but if you really, really wish to see a gentle and endangered manatee, this river in Florida will fulfil your dreams. Manatee is a 1500-pound sea creature which resembles a lot to seals, walrus, and beaver. You might want to note that some areas are sanctuaries and forbidden to tourists. If you want a passive interaction during swimming and snorkeling tours, you are most welcome to Kings Bay. You can stay at the Plantation on Crystal River.
- North Carolina’s Outer Banks
Do you adore horses? Are you dreaming to see the horses run wild and free? Head to the scenic beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Horses brought from Spanish Mustangs to the Carolinas centuries ago will add a ticket on your bucket list. If you wish to see the most striking herds, they are located on an 11-mile stretch beyond Corolla. You can stay at The Sanderling Resort & Spa.
- British Columbia
If you wish to do some sightseeing and bird-watching and would love to gear yourself up with goggles and binoculars, head to the slopes of Whistler, BC. You can schedule for some bird-watching nearby Brackendale in the Squamish River Valley. It harbors regal bald eagles. The best time to visit this place is in mid-December to mid-January. You can stay at the Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler.
- North Padre Islands
This is one of the best travel destinations for nature lovers. It is organically equipped with scenic beauty and the most special part about this journey is, you will witness endangered Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle hatchlings heading into Gulf waters off the Padre Island National Seashore. The best time to visit this place is mid-July through late August. You can stay at the camping sites in Padre Island National Seashore.
It would be highly remiss of us if we did not add Hawaii to the list. Does jumping into the nighttime waters of Kona on the Big Island sounds interesting to you? Perhaps you have found the perfect vacation haunt for yourself. Also when your guide attracts the plankton when he turns on the light, giant manta rays surface and swim above and below you like stealth bombers. It is an extraordinary sight to witness. You can visit Hawaii at any time of the year. You can stay at Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay where you can see mantas in water while you are dining. Beautiful, isn’t it?
