4 Most Photogenic Holiday Destinations
There are so many beautiful places to visit in the world, so how do you go about choosing where to go on your next holiday? If you have children you may think your options are more limited – but you shouldn’t put off travelling to long-haul destinations with them! If kids have plenty of snacks and games to entertain them, as TUI recommends, then a longer plane journey can be part of the adventure. Once you have decided what type of holiday you want, with good research and preparation you will find something that suits the whole family. So, here are 4 most photogenic holiday destinations that won’t require a filter on your phone. They are amazing all on their own, so you don’t have to do any work editing them for your Instagram account.
Banff National Park, Canada
A photographer’s dream! Banff was Canada’s first national park and it is one of the world’s finest destinations. A UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, it boasts majestic, picture-perfect mountains that will simply take your breath away. There is plenty to see and, with a range of hiking trails, there is something for every ability. Road trips can sometimes be boring, but the stunning scenery here is sure to amaze everyone and keep them interested. Surrounded by beautiful, jewel-coloured lakes, it is a perfect place to visit and photograph at any time of the year.
The Northern Lights, Thorsmork, Iceland
The Northern Lights are one of the natural wonders of the world, and they can be found on most people’s bucket lists. Typically green, purple, red or blue, it is easy to see why these colourful, dancing lights are so spectacular. Younger members of the family will enjoy the science behind the phenomenon. They are caused by electrons from solar winds and magnetic fields mixed with gases in the atmosphere. Aurora was the Roman god of the dawn and Boreas is the Greek name for the north wind. The best time to see the Aurora Borealis is from September to April. Capture precious memories. All you need is a good camera, clear skies and a bit of luck.
Oia, Santorini, Greece
Santorini is one of the most recognised and photographed islands in Greece. It is home to beautiful whitewashed houses with colourful blue domes carved into cliff tops, surrounded by the brilliant turquoise of the Aegean Sea. Offering delicious, fresh food, great swimming and sightseeing, it is a picture-perfect paradise. Think scenes from the film, Mamma Mia. You won’t want to put your camera away – make sure you take pictures of the magical sunrise and the legendary sunset.
Felidhoo, The House Reef, Maldives
If you are still searching for an award-winning picture, why not visit The Maldives in the Indian Ocean? It offers a wealth of beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs full of bright fish all ripe for snapping. Felidhoo Island is perfect for snorkelling and diving in the colourful corals of the expansive house reef. Or take a boat trip and be dazzled at the array of white beaches and bright blue and green coloured waters. The Maldives is family-friendly and children will enjoy swimming in the warm water, snorkelling and hunting for Finding Nemo – the bright orange and white striped fish made famous by the film of the same name. A photographer’s dream, capture it all through your lense for the perfect travel photograph.
