The Stand Out destinations of 2021
Finally, the big one (it does include the entire planet) 7 continents, nearly 200 countries around the world and millions of destinations from the highest mountains to the lowest canyons, from world heritage sites and the most modern of cities; these were our Stand Out destinations in 2021:
No. 3 - Greenland - With its natural landscape, Greenland is a truly stunning land to traverse. Our travelers chose to escape from the modern world to become one with the natural world and its unique geological landscape.
No. 2 - UK - With its many possibilities and attractions, the UK provides a variety of different tours for everyone, whether it’s hiking through the Lake district or lavishing in the luxury of London, staycations within the UK have become one of the most popular ways to discover somewhere new that was right in front of our faces this year.
No. 1 - Peru - With its natural beauty like the Andes mountains, the diversity of the Amazon rainforest, and one of the seven wonders of the world - Machu Picchu, there is no surprise that Peru tops our list with its natural and historical prowess.
That’s a wrap! We want to thank all our influencers, operators, travelers, and followers for making 2021 a year to remember! See you in 2022 - get that bucket lists ready!
