Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Aṉangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a plethora of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a World Heritage Site.
Iceland is another country that has it all in a small space. The ‘land of fire and ice' is a geothermal wonderland of volcanic craters, lava fields, glaciers, geysers that spew boiling water into the air and some of the most powerful and impressive waterfalls in Europe. In the centre lies an 8km-rift valley caused by the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia pulling slowly apart. Walk along the North America ridge or even dive in the rift lake and experience some of the clearest visibility in the world. And if that's not enough, one of most people's must-sees can also be experienced here: the Northern Lights. Visit from March to April for a chance to view this gentle phenomenon.
The South Island or Te Waipounamu is the larger of the two major islands of New Zealand, the other being the smaller but more populous North Island.
The number of natural attractions on this relatively small island is astounding. New Zeeland’s South Island offers not one but two rare mountain-to-sea glaciers in the Fox and the Franz Josef (heli-hiking is a fantastic options for exploring these).
A safari holiday really is the experience of a lifetime. You may not think so when troupes of baboons are bouncing off your platform tent at 2am, elephants are ripping bark off the tree outside your flimsy window or you can hear slithering through the undergrowth, but the sense of entering the animal kingdom and getting up close to those higher up the food chain than you is both awesome and humbling.

When it comes to mountainous must-sees in Europe, the Alps are the pretty chocolate box option. But for a little adrenaline rush, head for Lomnicky Stit, a 2,634m-peak in Slovakia's High Tatras mountains
