Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, is like nothing you have seen in your life. This light display in the sky occurs as a result of interaction between solar particles entering the earth’s atmosphere. As a result, you will be able to see pale green and pink colors, and possibly even some shades of violet, blue, yellow, and red in the sky. These colors take many shapes and illuminate the sky in a very unique way. While this natural phenomenon can be seen from several locations, Iceland is one of the best ones.

If travel blogs such as this website have inspired you to visit New Zealand, make sure you check out the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. These can be found on the North Island and are home to thousands of, you’ve guessed it, glowworms. These creatures are responsible for the mesmerizing twinkling glow that can be seen on the ceiling of the cave. Since these bright lights reflect off the water they create picturesque scenery. However, the lights are only half of the story. Glowworm Caves also feature spectacular limestone formations that are out of this world.

Are you a fan of the blockbuster known as “Avatar”? If so, you need to check out the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, or to be more precise, the Southern Sky Column. This tower was the inspiration for the movie due to which its name was changed to “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain”. It is a 3,544 feet high column made of quartz-sandstone, and at its peak there is a small oasis of trees.

4. Lake Hillier – Australia

We are all used to mild blueish and greenish hues of lake water, but have you ever dipped your toe in an entirely pink lake? Lake Hillier can be found on Middle Island in Australia and features a crazy bubblegum hue. Even if you put some water in your container it won’t change its color. So, why does water has this unusual color? Some believe that two micro-organisms called Halobacteria and Dunaliella salina are responsible for the pink hue, while others blame the red halophilic bacteria. In either case, this incredible lake is something you need to see.

5. Caño Cristales – Colombia

All of these striking colors are responsible for its unique look and are a reason why this river is so popular among tourists. The dominant color is red, and it derives from a plant known as Macarenia clavigera.
