Nature & Landscapes

Nature Tourism: Always a Breath of Fresh Air

On our gorgeous planet, nature is one of the biggest inspirations for tourism. Though the number of scenic places on the globe is infinite, each of us has our own cherished bucket-list. What we do best at Enchanting Travels is match your list to an itinerary that gets you to the unique landscapes you want to see. It could be the highs of Everest Base Camp you want to reach, or the calmness of the vast open plains of the Serengeti. Perhaps you’ve imagined standing at the point where the desert meets the sea on the Skeleton coast of Namibia, or overlooking the granite massifs of the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. Throughout Asia, Africa, Central and South America, if your aim is to witness unrivaled natural beauty, we’ll get you there.

As the snow glistens off the magical mountains of the Himalayas or the Andes, you are left in rapturous wonder. Hiking along Indonesia’s volcanic Mt Agung, or taking a dip in the hot springs at Fuentes Georginas in Guatemala, brings you closer to nature and the steaming core within.

Few can escape the primeval attraction of a waterfall cascading down a cliff. Famous falls like the dramatic Iguazu in Brazil and the thundering Victoria Falls on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia are breathtaking, but lesser-known ones like Gocta Falls in Peru and Kuang Si in Laos can be just as soothing to visit.

Contrary to popular belief deserts are not empty places. The harsh environments of the Sahara in Africa or Thar in India house a variety of adapted wildlife from camels to the dung beetle. In the Namib Desert, the vast red sand dunes of the Sossusvlei salt and clay pan are home to gemsbok, a large desert-adapted antelope. Moon-like in their starkness are the high-altitude expanses of the Atacama Desert in Chile and Ladakh in India. The salt flats of Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia and Rann of Kutch, India are equally tranquil and alluring.

Once you’ve spent time in a magnificent forest you’ll be a changed person. Explore the Amazon rainforest on guided trips via kayak or cruise boat. Let yourself become spellbound by birdlife in the cloud forests of Costa Rica, or by Central India’s untamed jungles where tigers and sloth bears hide.

Mountain to salt pan, lakes and river deltas to deserts, no matter where you choose to go, being in the lap of nature is soul restoring.
