Angas Travel’s own Kate Collins helped judge Flight Network’s Ultimate Bucket List, and the results are in… the fifty best spots to visit right now. “The list contains a diverse collection of hidden gem locations and exhilarating activities from every stunning corner of our planet” – says Flight Network.

The Top 10 is impressive…

1. Take a Wildlife Safari in Africa

“Nothing could be more breathtaking and awe-inspiring than surrounding yourself by the free spirit of majestic animals which make up the African landscape. Championed as one of the most rewarding adventures one can experience, a wildlife safari in Africa will transport you far from everyday life into a world of uninhibited nature.”

2. Embark on an Expedition to Antarctica

“Antarctica: a land of untouched beauty, frozen plains twinkling with icy frost and glaciers — a destination visited by so few. For its sheer magnitude and remoteness, this continent is a bucket list item for the world’s most adventurous travellers. But, you can’t visit this icy continent year-round. You’ll need to join an experienced crew and travel in the spring, from November to March.”

3. See The Northern Lights

“The Northern Lights are one of the most awe-inspiring natural phenomena on our planet. Dancing across the sky in otherworldly colours, this all-natural light show reminds us that our planet is filled with an abundance of wonder.  Because of this, witnessing the Aurora Borealis firsthand is meant for everyone’s bucket list.”

4. Trek to Machu Picchu

“Machu Picchu: the famed 15th century Inca citadel which still remains as a shining hallmark of classical Inca civilization, fills you with awe at the true beauties of a past culture.”

5. Sail the Galapagos Islands

“The Galapagos Islands are a world of uncommon treasures: animal species found nowhere else in the world, blue waters teeming with life, and phenomenal island views. This volcanic archipelago of 19 islands off Ecuador’s coast are known for their incredible amount of species that influenced the work of Charles Darwin. And sailing through them is a bucket list item that tops the list of explorers and seafarers alike.”

6. Lose Yourself in the Streets of Paris

“Whether you consider Paris the city of love or the city of light, this epicentre of cultural innovation, rich history and stunning architecture will forever champion as a top bucket list destination. Paris pleases all her visitors with delectable food, award-winning wine, and whimsical culture blended with aesthetic appeal.”

7. Stay in an Overwater Bungalow

“Waves crashing against white-hot sands. Golden sun warming your face. The stillness of the world surrounding you in unmatched relaxation as you lay on a balcony suspended over jewel-coloured waters. This is your own private overwater bungalow, the quintessential tropical getaway where cool waters lay steps down from your room, and where breakfast on the water awaits while the sun rises. Take a trip to the Maldives, French Polynesia, or Fiji to book yourself an overwater bungalow retreat.”

8. Gorilla Trekking in Central Africa

“Become one with nature and give into your primal instincts while walking with giant gorillas in Central Africa. This heart-pounding excursion allows you to encounter some of the most majestic creatures on earth.”

9. Explore Otherworldly Iceland

“With steaming natural springs that make you sweat and snow-capped cliffs that take your breath away — Iceland is a magnificently diverse place that’s enchanted adventurous travellers for decades. Boasting towering cliffs, black sand beaches and peaks at the Northern Lights, it’s no wonder exploring Iceland tops the bucket list charts with all the qualities of an otherworldly experience.”

10. Go Island Hopping in Greece

“Mythical stories are brought to life in the Greek Islands. Jewelled waters, quaint accommodations, stunningly-white architecture and endless sun collide here — leaving visitors unsure where to look first. Santorini, Mykonos, and Rhodes are three of the most popular destinations for a retreat, but any Greek island is meant for unforgettable moments of exploration and relaxation.”
