The Most Amazing National Parks in the World

Sometimes, when you’re stuck in the same old routine of 9 ‘till 5, you forget just how breathtakingly beautiful Earth really is. Like many of us, you’ve probably found yourself mindlessly surfing the internet when you stumble upon a photo that stops you for a second – a photo which causes that inner adventurer in us all feel the need to visit. Here at Royal Robbins, we’ve put together a list of national parks that we think, could be some of the best views Earth has to offer.

Yosemite National Park, USA

Yosemite is one of the most picturesque national parks in the world, with almost 4 million people visiting the park each year; it was one of the first parks in the National Park Service – set up in 1916. Yosemite is situated in the US state of California and is famous for its jaw-dropping cliffs, powerful waterfalls and crystal clear streams and no matter what angle you point your camera at, you’re going to end up with a very nice photo indeed.

Grand Canyon, USA

Definitely the most illustrated national park in the world, Arizona’s Grand Canyon has been sculpted by the Colorado River over millions of years. It sees five million visitors each year, each going to witness its vertigo inducing, one-mile deep canyon that spans ten miles across – offering unparalleled panoramic views.

Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Also know as Paine Towers because of its soaring peaks, Torres del Paine is located in the Patagonia region of Chile It gets its nickname from the 3 granite peaks that are shown in the photo above. As well as the peaks, which are made from granite, Torres del Paine is also home to stunningly blue glaciers and icebergs and the golden like plains that are occupied by rare wildlife. The park offers activities to suit any ability, from kayaking on the ice blue lakes to hike trails up to the towers peaks.

Mu Ko Similan National Park, Thailand

The virtually untouched Similan Islands are located in the Andarman Sea, 50km west of Phang-nga, Thailand. The tranquil, crystal blue waters harbour some of the best diving sites that Earth has to offer just off its often deserted beaches. On land, one of the most striking features of the Similan islands is the giant boulders that are found on the western and southern shores. However, due to the very unpredictable weather in the wet season, the park is inaccessible from mid-May up until November – so make sure you plan around this if you’re thinking of visiting.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Laying in the plains of Tanzania in Eastern Africa is the vast area (5,700 square miles to be exact) of the Serengeti National Park – the ultimate safari destination. The Serengeti was only made a national park in 1951, when it was recognised that the wildlife needed protecting due to heavy hunting; making animals such as lions scarce. Now, it has a healthy stock of the ‘big five’ game, including lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos, which can be safely observed on an excursion on the Northern Safari Circuit.
