Some discovering new places & experiences ... but admit it, you love it even more when you're the first out of your friends to experience a new place, right? The thrilling sensation of reaching an unknown, undiscovered destination is addictive, & it only takes one look at the 10 undiscovered places below. Come with me on a journey to these 10 undiscovered holiday destinations before everyone else catches on!

1. Dominica Island:

A beachside in Dominica

If you're a big fan of nature & the color green, you're bound to fall in love with this lush, mountainous island nation. Nicknamed the 'Nature Isle of the Caribbean 'thanks to its unspoiled beauty, it's said that if Christopher Columbus sailed the Caribbean in 2019 the only island he'd recognize would be Dominica! Highlights include stunning tropical rainforests, the Morne Trois Piton National Park & its roaring Boiling Lake, the charming Emerald Pool waterfall & the champagne Reef - named after its bubbling currents caused by an underwater volcano!

2. Bazaruto Island, Mozambique:

West Coast of Bazaruto Island, Mozambique

Known as 'the pearl of the Indian ocean', The island of Bazaruto feels like somewhere between heaven & earth. This amazing destination off the coast of Mozambique has stunning landscapes that have been eroded by the Limpopo River & the ocean to form a paradise of dunes, corals & hammocks suspended in the middle of the piercingly blue sea.

3. Meteora, Greece:

Rocks of Meteora

Athens, Santorini & smashing plates might be the first things that spring to mind when you think of Greece. However, the UNESCO site of Meteora in Thessaly is a place that needs to be added to your bucket list immediately. Here you'll find immense natural pillars with six orthodox Christian monasteries proudly sitting on top. This unique wonder is reachable via train from Athens to Kalampaka within 5 hours.

4. Kamchatka, Russia:

Valaginsk Mountain, Kamchatka

Russia is a country with so much still undiscovered by backpackers. The immense nation of tsars & vodka is where you'll find the volcanic Kamchatka peninsula, located in the Far East. This scenically dramatic region offers stunning trekking routes bypassing beautiful national parks, as well as the largest active volcano in the northern hemisphere, the Klyuchevskaya sopka. It's another worldly environment that needs to be seen to be believed. This tip is way ahead of the travel curve, so there are no hostels yet in Kamchatka! But head to the nearby cities of Khabarovsk or Vladivostok & book a tour from there.

5. Hidden Beach - Playa Del Amor, Mexico:

The Hidden Beach 

There's no doubt about it, Mexico has some of the best beaches in the world. We all know about concern & Baja California, but what about Marietas Island? This small archipelago is easily accessible from the coastal town of Puerto Vallarta. It's home to an array of marine life, & with an ocean water depth of between 70 & 110 feet, it makes for a prime diving spot. Here is where you'll find playa Del Amor, a hidden cove born from a huge crater in the heart of the island.

6. Cano Cristales,Colombia:

A part of the Cano Cristales River 

This river in the Colombian serranid de la Macarena should be considered the eighth wonder of the world in our humble opinion! Walk along the river to discover beautiful waterfalls & quiet areas where rare local flora is left to bloom in its full glory. Between late July & early November, cano crystals take on their iconic yellow, red, green & black hues as a result of the 'macarena clavigera', an aquatic plant that transforms this magical river beyond our widest rainbow-filled dreams.

7. Montreal Botanical Garden, Canada:

A site at Montreal

During summer the multicultural, bilingual vibrant city of Montreal truly blossoms. If you liked the movie Edward Scissorhands, we bet you'll be interested in the Montreal Botanical Garden, an urban jungle packed full of interesting topiary & colorful plants. Gaze in awe at the lanterns of its Chinese Garden or discover the rock creatures waiting in the Alpine Garden. It's far too easy to lose a day just strolling around the grounds!

8. Belleville - Paris, France:

The Parc de Belleville

As Thomas Jefferson said, "A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, & in the point of life". True that! Paris is one of the most visited & romanticized cities in the world, but there are more places to fall in love with than the Eiffel Tower or Montmartre. Slip under the more rad & pay a visit to Belleville, a neighborhood that's becoming one of the culture cit's most vibrant areas packed full of culture & charm . Stroll around admiring its street art & enjoy some tasty crepes at any of its hipsters hang-outs.

9. Matera, Italy:

Matera Basilicata in Southern Italy

Italy is full of must-see places, the awe-inspiring Rome, the Artistic Florence, or the latest Instagram sensation, Puglia. But we're all about trendsetting, not following, so we're focused on the city of Matera in the 'sole' of the Italian boot. It's home to the Sassi, a series of caves that are carved into the mountainsides & house museums, bars & restaurants. It's a city quite unlike any other!

10. Antarctica:

Adélie penguins in Antarctica

The snowy seventh continent remains an enigma to travelers. Most Antarctica adventures begin in the port of Ushuaia, Argentina's most southern city,& continue through the land of vast whiteness, icebergs, glaciers & spectacular mountains. It's not the easiest destination to visit, but the breathtaking views & total serenity that await at the end of the earth make this voyage worth the white. Do we bet not many of your mates have a ticket this off their bucket lists yet?
