HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
The Hawaiian islands are a beautiful creation by this planet, but the experience that’s most sought after there is an encounter with a live volcano. You can watch the Kilauea Volcano erupt molten lava, which is a unique experience that no one should pass up. The Earth opens up to bleed fire at Kilauea and Mauna Loa, a volcano that’s taller than Mt. Everest. If you’re up for it, you can even take a backpacking trip on the rough lava trails. Named an international biosphere and a World Heritage site by the United Nations, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a place you must visit in your lifetime.
The inspiration for the iconic Disneyland attraction, the Matterhorn is the most recognizable peak of the Alps, sitting on the Swiss-Italian border. Sure, there are larger mountains, but this 15,000-foot tall snow-covered beast is an eternal pop culture icon. The pyramid-shaped mountain continues to be a popular destination for experienced mountain climbers looking for an unforgettable adventure. If you decide to ascend up the monster peak, you can visit the igloo village at the base of the Matterhorn as well to catch some interesting tales of the epic mountain.
