Though we’re barely in the new year, we’re already thinking about where to spend our holidays in 2017. Keen to find some picturesque and dreamy destinations we’ve never been to, we thought we’d look on Townske to see where to go next. Check out some of our picks for the best destinations to travel to in 2017.
With the southernmost tip of the Great Barrier Reef found there, Lady Elliot Island in Queensland is snorkelling galore. The island is a coral cay, meaning it’s made from crushed coral, making it quite unique and unlike other island destinations we’ve been to before. The pristine waters are home to over 1,200 marine species, which makes the thought of throwing on a snorkel and diving in even more enticing.
Nestled somewhere between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe Islands are an unconventional holiday choice but a great one nonetheless. It’s the place to be if you prefer a very untouched part of the world, with abundant natural wonders to explore. There are a collection of villages dotted throughout the islands and plenty of experiences to be had in between.
Cappadocia, located in the middle of Turkey, is a beautiful place to visit. The architecture alone is worth seeing, with houses and churches having been carved out of natural rock formations. The area is also known for the picturesque hot-air ballooning that takes place in Göreme. Watching the sunrise over the magnificent landscape as hundreds of other balloons float around you would be an unforgettable experience.
There is an incredible amount of natural beauty in Canada and a plethora of national parks there to explore. The Yoho National Park is number one on our list of them to hit up in 2017. With stunning lakes surrounded by towering, snow-capped mountains, waterfalls, and interesting natural rock formations, pretty much everything there is Instagram-worthy.
When you see pictures of Boracay Island, it’s easy to see why it’s a regular at the top of ‘Best Islands In The Word’ lists. This is where we’ll be hitting up when we need somewhere perfectly tranquil to relax. The nightlife and restaurant scene on the island is also meant to be quite happening, so there’s a bit of everything for everyone at Boracay.
