The most beautiful places on the planet are being slowly destroyed with love. Airlines, ships and other transport links are delivering record numbers of travellers to famous destinations like Venice and Dubrovnik, forcing out residents and impacting the environment. But as common as this is, there are still lesser-known destinations which have not yet been fully realised for their beauty and cultural significance.
The professionals at TRIPorganiser are experts at organising and planning the getaway of your dreams, whether it’s a family holiday or a business trip. Today, they share 5 places to see before they become too crowded.
- Slovenia – Slovenia was named the world’s most sustainable country in 2017 and has some beautiful countryside to boot. The lush, rolling hills of Brda wine country can rival Tuscany and its historical architecture is completely unique.
- Jordan – for adventurous types, the newly built Jordan Trail is a 400-mile trek across the entire length of the Middle Eastern country, complete with stunning views and awe-inspiring environments.
- Iceland – Iceland has countless lesser-known locations to tickle your travelling tastebuds. For example, you can escape the tourists and still enjoy the same kind of aquamarine waters at Myvatn Nature Baths in northern Iceland, or even explore the geothermal pools inside the caves of Grjotagja in the northwest.
- Bosnia - although Croatia’s historic seaside city of Dubrovnik has been forced to take measures to limit the number of daily visitors and protect its UNESCO status, its culturally diverse neighbour Bosnia and Herzegovina is equally intriguing.
- Scotland – though Scotland is a tourist hotspot with the likes of Edinburgh and Glasgow blowing up in popularity over the years, there’s still much more of Scotland to see. Explore the naturistic scenery of Argyll, or head to the coast and explore the rocky shoreline of Dumfries and Galloway – Scotland has it all!
