Ready to fantasize about dream destinations to visit around the world? Covid-19 is preventing us from traveling as we would like at this moment but no one prevents us from dreaming and doing it big, imagining the most beautiful trips that can be done when all this is over. So what are the most popular and dreamed-of destinations for travelers?

In this article, we propose the 10 dream destinations to visit in the world for 10 dreams in the drawer ready to be fulfilled. You can choose the nature of the Galapagos, the mountains of Patagonia, the beaches of Hawaii, the paradise islands of the Cook, or opt for a safari in Tanzania or a flight over the pinnacles of Cappadocia.

The 10 dream destinations in the world: trips to do at least once in a lifetime

1. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Let's open this review on dream destinations with the Galapagos Islands, the Ecuadorian archipelago made up of 13 volcanic islands located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Discovered only in the mid-1500s, the Galapagos were used as a base by buccaneers, fishermen, and whalers until the 1800s, before becoming a National Park in 1959. This isolation has favored the development of numerous endemic species of animals and plants (species that therefore are not found anywhere else in the world!), many of which are now at risk of extinction. The Galapagos is truly the kingdom of animals, a lost paradise where man is a guest in the territory of iguanas, giant turtles, sea lions, and sharks that move between paradisiacal beaches, volcanic cones, and sea beds of rare beauty. If you are a nature lover… this is your dream trip!

2. Patagonia, Chile, Argentina

A trip to Patagonia is the dream of modern explorers and of all those who want to retrace the footprints left by the "greats", such as Chatwin, Bonatti, or Che. It is a journey, to say the least, mythical along the famous Route 40 (in Argentina) or the Carretera Austral (in Chile) to discover natural paradises made up of totally unspoiled mountains, lakes, and glaciers. In this large area of ​​South America, which belongs equally to Chile and Argentina, there are some of the most famous natural parks in the world such as the Los Glaciares National Park (which includes the Perito Moreno glacier, the peaks of Cerro Torre, and Fitz Roy), and the Torres del Paine Park (with the very famous lagoon of the 3 towers). In Patagonia, it is possible to walk hundreds of paths in the middle of nature with a capital N,

3. Cook Islands, New Zealand

Unmissable among the dream destinations, here are the Cook Islands, a tropical paradise surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. This Polynesian archipelago consists of 15 small islands and numerous islets; they were explored several times by the English Captain Cook in the 1700s, from which they then took their name. There are three main islands, Raratonga (where the only international airport is located), Aitutaki, and Atiu. The real natural spectacle of all the Cook Islands is the tropical beaches such as those of the Aori Marine Reserve or Muri Beach in Ratatonga, or Tapuaetai beach in Aiutaki, where sea and sky merge and where it is possible to admire the seabed absolutely extraordinarily. A curiosity: the Cook Islands have self-government and are in free association with New Zealand, according to their statute they can become independent at any time with a unilateral act!

4. San Blas Islands, Panama

From one paradisiacal archipelago to another: in Central America, you will find some of the most authentic and least inflated dream destinations in the world. The San Blas Islands are in fact located near the Panama Canal (to which they belong) and 378 are part of it between real islands and sandy islets, of which only about 40 are inhabited. The San Blas Islands are the classic Robison Crusoe islands, a necklace of islets of fine white sand, with palm trees, and a crystalline sea, perfect for those who want to completely break away from civilization. Inhabited by the indigenous Cuna tribe, who took refuge there during the Spanish invasions of Panama, the San Blas Islands is located in a very famous sailing area thanks to the absence of hurricanes and a sailing cruise is certainly one of the best ways to explore them. 

Love at first sight: the natural pools of Cayo Holandeses… better at dawn!

5. Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

For those who love animals, the real dream trip to do at least once in a lifetime is the safari, and Tanzania it is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best place in the world to make them. Ngorongoro National Park is a unique park, to say the least because it is located inside the crater of an extinct volcano. From Karatu you climb up to the crest of the caldera and then descend inside, on a journey to discover a lost world where you can see dozens of lions, zebras, hippos, gazelles, etc ... The Serengeti National Park is no exception, let's talk about the landscapes of “The Lion King”, a magical territory where the famous migration of wildebeest and zebras to and from the Masai Mara in Kenya has been renewed for millennia. On a safari in Tanzania you will feel like you are inside a National Geographic documentary: nowhere else in the world will you see the quantity and quality of animals that you can meet here! 

Love at first sight: night in a tented camp in Serengeti National Park.

6. Svalbard Islands, Norway

From the heat and the sun of Tanzania, we completely change the geographical area for a dream destination located in the far north, namely the Svalbard Islands. These islands belong to Norway and represent the northernmost inhabited area of ​​the planet; 60% of the archipelago is in fact covered by ice for 12 months a year! The islands cover an area of ​​around 60,000 square meters and the largest are Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet, and Edgeøya, with all the towns on the former. The rest of the territory is occupied by mountains and wide valleys covered by ice and inhabited by polar bears. A trip to Svalbard is a trip to an extreme and fascinating natural territory, now 2/3 protected by 3 nature reserves, 6 national parks, and 15 bird sanctuaries. Thanks to this, Svalbard has recently obtained the certification of Sustainable Destination. 

Love at first sight: night at the Isfjord Radio Hotel, one of the most beautiful in Svalbard.

7. Lhasa and Mount Everest, Tibet

If you are looking for a still authentic and super fascinating destination, Tibetit's just the thing for you. Nicknamed “the roof of the world” due to its high peaks, Tibet is an autonomous region of China that has Lhasa as its political and spiritual capital. In fact, here are the former residence of the Dalai Lama (the magnificent Potala palace) and the Jokhang temple, where pilgrims come to venerate the golden statue of the young Buddha. But Tibet is also the region of Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world (8848 meters) which is located halfway between Tibet and Nepal, as well as several other mountains that exceed 8000 meters. A trip to Tibet means getting completely lost in nature, among breathtaking landscapes, snow-capped peaks, and crystalline lakes, but also getting in touch with a millenary culture and traditions that seem to belong to another era.

8. Whitsunday Islands, Australia

Australia could not miss among the dream destinations, especially if we talk about the Whitsunday Islands. These 74 islands, mostly uninhabited, are located between the northeastern coast of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world's diving paradises, with incredible marine life. The Whitsundays are characterized by heavenly beaches of flour-white sand (made up of 98% silica), tropical forests, and hiking trails. The most famous beach is Whitehaven Beach (the name says it all), a 7km stretch of beach with surreal colors to say the least, accessible by boat, seaplane, or helicopter from Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island. The color of the water ranges from blue to emerald, with an infinite number of reflections and shades that leave you speechless. 

Love at first sight: the view of Whitehaven Beach from Hill Inlet Lookout.

9. Hawaiian Islands, United States

The Hawaiian Islands represent the dream trip of many travelers and it is not hard to understand why! The 8 islands that make up the archipelago are famous all over the world for their wild landscapes made of cliffs, waterfalls, tropical vegetation, and golden, red, or black sand beaches, as well as for the waves to ride "in the saddle" of a surf. . The capital is Honolulu and is located on the island of Oahu, where you shouldn't miss Waikiki Beach as well as World War II memorials in Pearl Harbor and North Shore, the surfing mecca. Other things to visit are the gardens of the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) and the cliffs of the Na Pali Coast in Kauai (the oldest island of the archipelago), the "Hana Hwy" (which is the most famous coastal route of all Hawaii) and Haleakala National Park on Maui,

Love at first sight: visit to Thurston Lava Tube (Big Island).

10. Cappadocia, Turkey

Among the dream destinations between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, we close the article with Cappadocia, in Turkey, a real open-air museum where you can admire the famous "fairy chimneys"(in Göreme), but also ancient underground cities, canyons with incredible colors and rock churches with incredible frescoes. In fact, everyone associates Cappadocia with the postcard hot air balloon ride over the fairy chimneys (the famous cone-shaped rock formations), but there is much more. In addition to the attractions of nature, in fact, in Cappadocia men have created truly unique works that leave you breathless, as is the case of the underground cities of Derinkuyu and Kaymakli, of the 100 and more rock churches in the Inhala Valley, of the abandoned city of Zelve or Uchisar Castle. A trip to Cappadocia is a dream journey that will give you unique emotions. 

Love at first sight: a trip to the Rose Valley or the fairy chimneys in a balloon.
