The world is full of wild and wonderful places. Every now and then, you come across a really special place. Somewhere that stops you in your tracks and leaves you gazing in awe. We recently got our hands on some photographs from Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic and chose what we consider, some of the most spectacular places in the world.

Off the icy shores of the mighty white continent, you'll find Pléneau Island. The iceberg and glacial scenery of this icy land is truly jaw dropping and home to penguins, elephant seals and sea birds.

As Darwin described it, the Galápagos is “a little world within itself". The beautiful islands are populated with an array of exotic and sublime creatures that bask on the white sands, swim through the shimmering waters and soar above in the blue skies.

The expansive, wild environment of Chichagof Island has the highest bear population on earth. These gorgeous creatures move through the lush forests and can be seen fishing for salmon in the streams around the island.

Snowcapped mountains, polar bears and deep fjords abound in Svalbard. The blue, icy reaches of the Monaco Glaciers are the favourite breeding ground for a range of bird species. Seeing them in flight is truly unforgettable.

Santorini, Greece

Shaped by volcanic activity, Santorini is a treasure to explore. White villages are perched high on the ridges of the island, overlooking the vast seas. Down by the sea you'll find deep blue waters with white, red or black sand and impressive rock formations.

The world is full of unforgettable experiences and breathtaking locations. Sometimes you find spectacular places by accident, but a lot of the time you need to seek in order to find. Explore, experience and discover your slice of Nirvana.
