Adventurous travelers are already making plans to visit new and underexplored destinations in 2018. Nowadays the world seems to be getting bigger – the age of the Internet and fewer travel restrictions has turned many new sites into hot spots. But there are still many locations you can visit before the word gets out.
Popular cities such as Barcelona and London lack authenticity, which is something that is becoming more and more important for explorers. A Tourism and Travel Trends Report found that 26 percent of U.S. travelers enjoy visiting “rare and remote landscapes like Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands or the Arctic,” and 54 percent said they would eventually like to try visiting such places.
You can still surf world-class breaks without having to go to Hawaii; extreme safaris are not only available in South Africa; and Baroque architecture, fairytale villages, and white sand beaches with pristine water are found not only in Italy.
