Six travel destinations that look like they're from another planet.....


Atacama Desert, Chile

Not only is the Atacama Desert the driest place on earth, you could also be forgiven for thinking you’re looking at another world. Explore the desert, including Mars Valley and Salt Mountain and watch the rocks appear to change colour as the sun sets, on our Chile, the Atacama to Patagonia tour. 


Northern Lights, Iceland

The sight of the Northern Lights has long been described as an out of this world experience. The auroras are caused by solar wind and form a multitude of colours which dance across the night sky. You can experience the incredible sight on our Icelandic Splendours tour. 


Yellowstone National Park, USA

The incredible Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is a bubbling ring of vibrant, other-worldly colours that wouldn’t be out of place on an alien planet. You can see the pool for yourself, along with the extraordinary Yellowstone Canyon and Old Faithful geyser on our National Parks tour. 


Halong Bay, Vietnam

This UNESCO World Heritage Site features thousands of islands in all different sizes, most of which are limestone. The bay looks like it could belong on a distant planet, waiting to be discovered. Experience an overnight river cruise through Halong Bay on our Discover Vietnam tour. 


Moon Landscape, Namibia

Home to the Welwitschia Mirabilis, a centuries old desert plant that looks like it doesn’t belong on Earth. The unique land has been eroded over thousands of years to create an incredible sight that you have to see to believe exists. You can discover this area on our Namibia, Tribes and Natural Wonders tour.


Glow Worm Caves, New Zealand

With their eerie sight, you’ll feel like you’ve entered another dimension in the Glow Worm Caves of Dunedin. The tiny creatures are unique to New Zealand and turn the caves into a starry wonderland. Visit the caves and experience the magic for yourself on our Breathtaking New Zealand tour.
