The world is a remarkable place full of endless wonders and natural beauty. Often, we stick to the tried and tested and travel to more frequently visited locations. Our team at Travel Sphere thought why not spread out wings a little and travel to more unknown parts of the globe. Here is our top 7 list of the group touring destinations you never know existed.
Explore the mysterious 'crooked forest' of Western Poland, with 400 pine trees all growing with a 90-degree bend at the base. The reason behind the curved trees remains unknown to this day.
Clamber through Jiuzhaigou Valley, a remote region of northern Sichuan, China that stretches over 180,000 acres. It's best known for its Tibetan villages and multi-level waterfalls with colourful lakes that let you see perfectly to the bottom.
Soak your feet in the hot springs of Rotorua, a New Zealand city known for its geysers, thermal springs, and bubbling mud pools. It's nicknamed the 'Sulphur City,' and visitors can also partake in water sports in the region's 17 lakes.
Visit the world's largest deepwater coral reef in the Lofoten Islands, an archipelago off the coast of Norway that lies within the Arctic circle. It's home to wildlife like otters, moose, puffins, and more.
Travel to Pangong Tso Lake, a narrow saline lake in the Himalayas between India and Tibet. The bright blue water, contrasted by the mountains, is absolutely breathtaking.
See the sea life in Rangiroa, a ring-shaped atoll in French Polynesia that is known for oysters that produce black pearls. It also has some of the world's best scuba diving, and visitors can see dolphins, manta rays, green sea turtles, and hammerhead sharks.
