9. Boulders Beach - Hang out with penguins

8. Banff National Park - Canadian dream
Banff National Park in Canada is a must-visit for any nature lover (that's all of us, right?) The mighty mountains, crystal-clear turquoise waters, lush nature and wildlife are all enough to have our jaws drop to the floor. A must-do in Banff is to take out a red canoe onto the waters, at a cost of $45 CAD an hour and $25 CAD for every additional hour, that's about 30 euros for every hour and 17 euros for every extra hour.

7. Faroe Islands - Rugged beauty
The Faroe Islands are a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the countries of Norway and Iceland. This island is as if from a dream, where you'll find small black homes with grass roofs, magnificent oceanside cliffs and green rolling hills stretching out into the distance. A true photographer's dream, too! The dream-like Mulafossur Waterfall is one must-see on the island, although you'll be amazed wherever you go.
