5 Must-Do Bucket List Trips for 2023: The Ultimate Adventure Checklist

We all have a bucket list. Whether places we want to see, things we want to do, or experiences we want to have, we all have a list of things we want to experience. And while there are endless possibilities for amazing experiences out there, there are some that just stand out above the rest. Here are the top 5 bucket list trips you need to take in your lifetime.

#1 - Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is an ancient Incan city that is located high in the mountains of Peru. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South America, and for good reason. The views from Machu Picchu are absolutely breathtaking, and the history and culture of the site are fascinating. If you’re looking for an amazing adventure, Machu Picchu should definitely be at the top of your list.

#2 - The Great Barrier Reef, Australia

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system and is located off the coast of Australia. It is home to an incredible diversity of marine life and is a popular destination for snorkeling and scuba diving. The Great Barrier Reef is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and should not be missed.

After nearly two years of closures, both Australia and New Zealand have reopened to tourism. Because they are both major bucket-list destinations, the appeal of these countries remains strong, and travelers are now booking trips to experience the very best of the region’s unique wildlife, vibrant cities, and culinary culture.

#3 - The Northern Lights, Iceland

The Northern Lights are one of nature’s most incredible displays, and Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see them. The best time to see the Northern Lights is between September and April when the nights are long and dark. If you’re looking for an unforgettable experience, witnessing the Northern Lights should be on your bucket list.

#4 - The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

The Pyramids of Giza are some of the most iconic structures in the world. These ancient tombs date back over 4500 years and remain some of the largest man-made structures on earth. A visit to the pyramids is a must-do for anyone interested in history or archaeology. And don’t forget to check out the nearby Sphinx while you’re there!

Experts predict that the home of the Nile River will be a very popular destination in 2023 and beyond, particularly with the buzz about the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum. As more major cruise lines enter the Egyptian market, anticipate an even greater demand for private charters of Nile boats and traditional dahabeyas. Private guides, after-hours museum access, and fast-track customs are services luxury clients should demand.

#5 - Safari in Tanzania

A safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that everyone should have. Tanzania is one of the best places in Africa for a safari, as it is home to many national parks and game reserves. On a safari in Tanzania, you'll have a chance to see lions, elephants, leopards, and many other amazing animals up close.
