Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia

Visitors to Salar De Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, seem to defy the elements and walk on water in the rainy season. In actual fact, only a shallow layer of water covers the plain, but its mirrored surface seems to blur all lines between the land and sky. The wonder is just as otherworldly in the dry period when the cracked, white Earth looks almost lunar.

Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland, UK

This rocky pinnacle has played a starring role in plenty of fantasy movies, and it’s not hard to see why. The dramatic formation – which has appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman, The BFG and hit horror film The Wickerman – soars to 160 feet (49m), towering above the craggy countryside below. Legend has it, it’s the burial place of a giant.

Saalfeld Fairy Grottoes, Thuringia, Germany

Striking stalactites and stalagmites cling to the walls and floors of these whimsical caverns in eastern Germany. The caves, notable for their colorful rock, were once mined for alum shale, but now they’re purely for show. Visitors come to pore over their rainbow-hued formations which have been tipped as the most colorful in the world by Guinness World Records.

Painted Hills, Oregon, USA

It looks as though someone has taken a paintbrush to these color-splashed hills in central Oregon. One of the ‘seven wonders’ of the state, they form part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument and their rich hues – scarlet, ocher, peanut and black – are the result of a changing climate over millennia. The striking rocks still change color today and five hiking trails wiggle through the landscape. Check out America's most important National Monuments.

Wistman’s Wood, Devon, England, UK

Gnarled, knotted branches dripping in lichen make this one of the most haunting forests in the UK. Its mossy expanse takes up a pocket of Dartmoor National Park and it’s tipped as one of the highest and oldest oak woodlands in the country. Pathways ripple through the trees, whose knobbly arms look ready to reach out and grab you. These are the most magical places on Earth.

Deadvlei, Namib Desert, Namibia

If it wasn’t for the petrified camel-thorn trees and the burning orange dunes, this stark landscape could double for the surface of the moon. Deadvlei is folded into Namibia’s Namib-Naukluft Park and the white clay pan, likely formed more than 1,000 years ago, is fringed by some of the tallest sand mountains in the world. It’s known for its glittering night skies too.

Firefall, Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park, California, USA

Horsetail Fall – a seasonal cascade rushing over the eastern side of El Capitan – is beautiful whenever it makes an appearance. But, come late February, it’s extra special. When the conditions are just so and the falls are backlit by the setting sun, it appears as though a thick stream of lava is spilling over the side of the mountain. Unsurprisingly, the ethereal spectacle usually draws in the crowds.

Carcross Desert, Yukon, Canada

You might not associate Canada with deserts, but the country – usually hailed for its impossibly blue lakes and lush forests – is actually home to the supposed smallest desert in the world. There was originally a glacial lake here, but when the glaciers retreated the lake was lost, leaving behind only the sandy bed. The little desert is a strange, otherworldly sight with snow-capped peaks rising from the edge of the sand and trees springing up all around.

Bastei, Saxon Switzerland National Park, Germany

There’s something fairy tale-esque about these hulking rock forms in Germany’s Saxon Switzerland National Park. The Bastei – great pinnacles of gray sandstone – look almost like the turrets of a ruined stone castle, as they tower over the surrounding woodland. Adding to the drama is the Bastei Bridge, a stone structure that slices through the sandstone forest, and is usually dotted with view seekers and photographers.

Zhangye Danxia National Geopark, Gansu, China

Mountains don’t come much more colorful than this. Bright birthday-cake layers of blue, red, and acid yellow come together to form Zhangye Danxia National Geopark in the northern reaches of China. The eye-popping hues are the result of millions of years of layered sandstone and mineral deposits, while wind and water erosion carved deep ridges and troughs into the psychedelic rock.

Iceland makes good on its nickname, the “Land of Ice and Fire”, with this sprawling glacier, the largest not just in the country, but in Europe too. At its thickest point the icy wonder is more than 2,953 feet (900m) and it has at least 30 outlet glaciers to boot. Adding to the drama is JΓΆkulsΓ‘rlΓ³n, a jaw-dropping glacial lagoon fringing the southeastern edge of the ice cap.
