See mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo.


India Dowley, Digital Editor of Suitcase Magazine, told us this is the best place to see mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

"Climb 3,470 metres to the summit of Mount Nyiragongo, an active volcano that last erupted in 2002 and spend the night in a shelter overlooking the world’s largest crater lake," she said.

Visit the chocolate box fishing villages of the Lofoten Islands, Norway.


"This remote archipelago in Norway is known for dramatic peaks and dark glassy seas," Dowley said. "Dotted with chocolate-box fishing villages such Henningsvær, it’s not hard to imagine it when the Vikings ruled the north seas."

Pretend you're on a desert island at Motu Tiapaa in Maupiti.


"This islet in the South Pacific archipelago is as close to a desert island as you’re going to get," Dowley said. "Simultaneously wild and tranquil, volcanic black rock meets powder-white beaches, beyond which, between July and October, humpback whales glide past on their annual pilgrimage from Antarctica."

Explore the sci-fi landscapes of Cappadocia, Turkey.


"Volcanic eruptions nearly four million years ago left the landscape dotted with rock structures known as fairies, leaving the region looking like something out of a Star Wars film," Dowley said. "Now scattered with underground cities and carved out cave dwellings, Cappadocia has only begun to attract visitors in recent years."

Camp in the Caucasus Mountains in Kazbegi, Georgia.


"This small town in the Caucasus Mountains is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been," Dowley said. "Tbilisi locals go in the summer months to camp among wild horses on the lush carpet of the mountains, with vertiginous views of waterfalls and towering peaks."

Chill out in Levi, Finland.


James Asquith, who holds the world record for being the youngest person to visit every country in the world, picked this as one of his hotspots.

"Located over 100 miles north of the Arctic circle, it gets seriously cold here," he said. "I was there when the Mercury dropped to -34 degrees centigrade, but once you acclimatise to having your breath taken away every morning, you can get busy with some truly unique activities. Ride snowmobiles and skid around on ice in go-karts, and be sure to check out the Ice Hotel."

Have a star-gazing sleepover in Tuvalu.


"This Polynesian island nation is one of the smallest countries in the world," Asquith said.

"Only two flights a week depart from the island. After these go, the airport runway becomes a gigantic open air sleepover at night. What feels like the entire population of the country drag their mattresses out to the runway and sleep in the open as a cool nightly breeze runs across the flat land here."
