Salar de Uyuni in southwest Bolivia is where you will find the world’s largest salt flats. While that may not sound that impressive, during a certain time of year there is a thin layer of water which transforms the plains into one gigantic mirror. This is the place for people to pull out their cameras and start creating fun and unique shots.

Iceland is a country full of impressive landscapes and adventure. One of their most popular and commercialized sites is the Blue Lagoon, and for good reason. This lagoon consists of hot geothermal seawater high in minerals which will leave your hair feeling like straw and your skin feeling like new.

Lake Retba or Lac Rose as known by locals in Senegal is unlike any other lake you will lay your eyes on. It is a bright pink color during the dry season (Nov-June) due to the Dunaliella salina algae which is high in salt. The algae produces a red pigment which helps absorb light. Currently it is under consideration by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. If you do stop by, you will more than likely see either other tourists or salt collectors.

Often some of the most impressive places take a little bit of exploring to get to which is the case for the Medenhall Ice Caves. Located near Juneau, Alaska, these caves can be found in the Medenhall Valley and extends for 12 miles. The only way to access the caves is to kayak in and ice climb out. Unfortunately due to global warming the glaciers are becoming smaller extremely quickly.
