In the age of social media, the ‘selfie’ has become the most popular way to showcase the spectacular sights of your travels to your friends and family, leaving them with mixed feelings of awe and jealousy.
Finding the best spots to take the perfect selfie can sometimes require a little secret knowledge, a good camera, and a pinch of magic. However, we’ve compiled this list to let you in on all the best spots to take the ultimate selfies that will make everyone back home as jealous as possible!
Iguazu Falls – Foz Do Iguacu – Brazil
This breathtaking ‘New Wonder Of The World’ is located on the border between Argentina and Brazil and can be seen either side. Breathtaking waterfalls cascade down jagged rocks and cliffs down into the Iguazu River, giving close competition to the famous Victoria Falls. Tourist decks and walkways have been built into the river to allow you to get up close and personal with mother nature, allowing for the most beautiful background for your selfie. If you fancy getting even closer and risking your camera, boat rides are also offered to go into the smaller falls.
Trolltunga – Norway
Daredevils may want to check out Trolltunga; the instagrammable jagged cliff edge known to attract those wanting a daring selfie. 7000 miles above sea level, the awe-inspiring scenery will leave you, and everyone back home breathless (literally).
Sunset Swing – Gili Trawangan Island
Often mistaken for being in Bali, this is the perfect spot to catch the ultimate holiday photo in the most romantic of settings. A double swing built into the sea floor in this idyllic paradise makes for the perfect photo opportunity for two travellers wanting to capture themselves harking back to their childhood days. Visiting at Sunset is recommended by locals to capture the scenery in all its glory.
Antelope Canyon – Arizona US
Forget about the Grand Canyon because this picturesque natural wonder is swiftly stealing its thunder. A concave of tunnels, caves and walkways created by rivers and streams have carved out the best backdrop of colourful rock formations for those holiday snaps!
Cappadocia Hot Air Ballooning – Turkey
Ever wanted a birds-eye view of something spectacular? Capture yourself walking on air floating above the rolling hills, flowing rivers and vast valleys, capturing the striking views of fellow hot air balloons drifting through the heavens. Tours are offering for varying balloons and durations, and are inspiring, fun, and family-friendly!
Dead Sea – Israel
For those unafraid to get wild and muddy, the mineral beaches in Israel are a great place for relaxation, unleashing your inner child as well as capturing a great pic. Slather yourself in the mineral rich muds of the natural hot-sulphur-spring water pools for a great selfie that will definitely make your friends and family Laugh-Out-Loud!
