Keep reading to find out more.

 

1. The Lake District, UK

Starting off with the most recent addition to the World Heritage group, the Lake District is a stunning region consisting of mountains, lakes and endless rolling hills.

Go for a hike up the tallest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, or go for paddle on the 18 kilometres long Lake Windermere.

2. Easter Island, Chile

One of the most remote locations on the World Heritage Site list, Easter Island is shrouded in mystery, history and beauty.

The focal point of the island are the 887 statues or moai, created between the 13th and 16th centuries.

Why they are there is still a mystery, and archaeologists are still searching for clues about their meaning and how they even got there.

Be sure to explore the stunning coastline too.

3. Canadian Rocky Mountain Peaks

12 countries + 15 states = 5 awesome years married to this one. Cheers @ahadzo, where to next? 😜

Spanning over 180,000 square kilometres, the Canadian Rockies feature some of the most awe inspiring scenery in the world.

Take a hike through dense forest, along alpine lakes, and up through peaks such as Mt. Robson.

4. The Pyramids of Giza

This time my passion brought me to magical Cairo and today not only did I saw the incredible pyramids, tasted delicious food, experienced the craziest traffic but also I taught the first day at #polecampegypt and met so many talented and dedicated girls. Thank you so much @mint.pfe for your warm welcome and taking me everywhere even though you had the craziest time! Looking forward to another day of the camp tomorrow where I can share my love to pole with more students ❤️ PS of course I had to strike a pose and omg I had an audience 😅 actually in Cairo you don't even have to strike a pose for people to stare at you 👀🙋 Wearing @dharmabumsactive #Cairo #pyramids #travelingtheworld #dharmabums #dharmabumsactive #lovemydharmabums #yoga

Located in Egypt, the pyramids of Giza consists of a complex of pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and several cemeteries.

They were believed to be constructed between 2560–2540 BC, making the fact that there are still standing in such incredibly good condition truly remarkable.

If you visit the pyramids of Giza, make sure you are properly prepared for the intense sunlight and heat with some gorgeous sunglasses.

Invest in the Ray-Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer.

These beautiful sunnies feature a classic wayfarer design and a universally flattering tortoiseshell design.

5. Palace & Gardens of Versailles, France

The royal chateau of Versailles is a truly stunning location, consisting of extensive manicured gardens, and a beautiful palace which was the seat of the King of France in the 17th and 18th Centuries.

Versailles was used to house members of the senior nobility, so that Louis XIV was able to, in a way, control them and curb any attempts to overthrow him.

It was the scene of many stories about scandal, murder and romance, and is a truly fascinating place to visit.

6. Mount Fuji, Japan
