In addition to the gorgeous view of the valley carved by the Colorado River – one of the US postcards – the tourist can take advantage of and pass through the city of Las Vegas, which is a few miles to the west. The national park is easily accessible, worth visiting in the low season months (March to November).
This trail on the remote island of Iceland is relatively short (only 55km), but worth it for the distinct landscape and effort undertaken. The country has a relentless volcanic activity, so get ready to see lava fields, volcanoes, geysers and thermal pools, as well as endless mountains.

Located in the Chilean Patagonia, on the southern tip of the continent, this circuit – named after the letter-like format – was recently voted the best trail on the planet by Wikitravel , a travel website. The tourist who visits the site has a lush view of mountain formations, glaciers and crystalline lakes.
It is a difficult trail, with about 80 kilometers traveled in a cold climate with winds of up to 100 km / h. However, there are refugees scattered along the way, offering food and stay – preferred option for first-time adventurers. The best months are January and February, and there are several companies that offer the services of transfer from the city of Punta Arenas.
