One of the "most beautiful villages in france," the medieval village of najac sits majestically along a rocky ridge overlooking the gorges of the aveyron river. the imposing hilltop chateau dominates the view in the near distance, and is also where richard the lionheart once slept.

“as the cold mist swirled around me, i could hear and feel nothing but the intensity of the falls. walking this close to something moving so fast in my peripheral vision made it exponentially harder to find my balance, but when i was able to focus and relax, the experience was unlike anything else in the world.” @travisburkephotography describes his breathtaking "walk" above these raging waters in central oregon. travel tip: don't try this at home, but do let it serve as a reminder that we all the power to stand tall in the face of fear, adversity, and new challenges.

Silvery waters, lush emerald and gold-speckled greenery, and brooding silhouettes of where the earth falls away to the sea — @espenvalverde captures the immensity and dark beauty of the famed cliffs of moher wonderfully. the destination, while seemingly untouched, is one of the most popular stops for travelers in ireland. the moody landscape has also made appearances in films like “the princess bride,” “harry potter and the half-blood prince,” and “pirates of the caribbean: at world’s end.” are these cliffs on your bucket list?

While the mountains of switzerland are often associated with pristinely snowy peaks and exceptional ski runs, don't overlook the adventures to be had in the summer months. @asenseofhuber takes us for a midsummer's ride, straight through his polaroid and down the longest toboggan run in the country, located on the side of mount pilatus in kriens — a journey many describe as "exhilarating" yet "terrifying." if you're looking for summertime activities that are a bit more low key, the region of pilatus is also great for hiking, picnicking, swimming, and boating.

@leefphotos finds solace in beaches — especially this stunning maldivian escape. “some people prefer mountains, deserts, or forests, but the beach is where i belong. the ocean is an immediate stress reliever for me. as soon as i breathe in that salty air and feel that ocean breeze in my hair, i instantly feel calmer and like i never want to leave. the truth is simple — life is just better at the beach, and that’s a fact.”(📷: @leefphotos 📍: maldives)

The magnificent dunes of brazil’s lençóis maranhenses national park are so vast and blindingly white that it’s not difficult to see how the park got its name — in portuguese, "lençóis maranhenses" means “bedsheets of maranhão,” maranhão being the state in northeastern brazil in which the park is located. though it may look like a quintessential desert environment, maranhenses actually gets around 47 inches of rain each year — and during the wet seasons, the rainwater pools in the valleys between the dunes, creating thousands of these brilliantly blue pools. travel tip: once the dry season returns, water levels drop dramatically, so try to visit the lagoons between july and september to see them at their fullest and most vibrant.

BEAUTIFUL DESTINATIONS
Hawaii is a quiet enigma, wrapped in roads and highways that run through moss-cloaked hills and emerald greenery, and unmarked paths and waterways that beckon to be explored. content creator logan armstrong was enchanted by one of the island’s invitations when he stumbled across an unmarked trail while driving along the hana highway — known for housing hidden pockets of natural beauty — in maui. after stopping to venture down the lush forest pathway, he emerged to this quiet corner and sat, listening to the rhythmic cascades of a pair of young waterfalls and taking in one of the island’s concealed coves. though it may seem like so much territory has already been charted and explored, there's beauty in remembering that even some of the seemingly most-explored places still offer secret corners just waiting to be discovered. where have you found your favorite hidden spot while traveling? #visittheusa (📷: @loganstrongarms 📍: maui, hi)

The jutting peaks of the lofoten islands pierced the remnants of day, the fading sun blanketing them with hues of tangerine-gold and burning plum. @visualsofjulius captured the dramatic scene during an extensive, seven-hour hike in norway this summer.

“i shot this at midnight as the summer light continued to perpetually illuminate the extraordinary landscape,” says @elialocardi of his trip to the capital of greenland — nuuk — last year. the country, also known as the “land of the midnight sun,” experiences this phenomenon during the summer months — an occurrence where the light of the day’s sun extends into the night and remains visible through midnight. have you experienced the surreality of the midnight sun?

“i can’t really help it — my mind is always jumping back to my time in sri lanka.” @pie_aerts recalls the joy of simple living when his days followed the minimalistic succession of surf, chill, yoga, repeat. many of us who have traveled, or travel a lot, have that one spot we could see going to and staying a while — whether it was our connection to the culture there, the people, the cuisine, or just the stunning natural landscape or sprawling excitement of an urban city. what city or country hit that sweet spot for you?
