For the decision-making process to be made easier, here is a list of some of the best experiences that cannot be missed.
Visit The Colosseum In Rome
The Colosseum is one of the most notable and most visited attractions in Rome or Italy. As one of the oldest existing monuments in the country for more than 2000 years, the history that took place on this square was quite amazing.
This ancient highlight in Rome, the architecture, the size and also the formidable spectacle they witnessed, was unprecedented and remains to this day one of the greatest, most impressive yet most brutal examples of public entertainment in history. In an era when dynasties ruled, citizens were encouraged to visit the games that took place here.
Visit The Galapagos
Explore the Galapagos in luxury with South America Odyssey. 1000 km away from the Ecuadorian mainland coast lie the world-famous Galápagos Islands. Scattered in the Pacific Ocean, the volcanic islands defy the scorching heat of the equator.
Over the years, under the strict conditions imposed by the Galapagos National Park, more than 100 visitor spaces above and below the water have been opened up to tourists arriving from all over the world. The ‘Noah’s Ark in the Pacific,’ is today an ideal place to explore for biologists and photographers. The huge marine reserve in the Galapagos is also one of the best dive sites in the world.
Go Volcano Sightseeing In Iceland
Want to stand on a stream of lava? Then head to Iceland. The Icelandic volcanoes are certainly a unique natural phenomenon and serve as a great spot for nature lovers and adventurers. After walking along crater lakes, you can then relax in Iceland’s hot springs. In some places, the mud bubbles formed by volcanic activities cause open holes, where water shoots out in fountains of up to 80 meters high. If relaxation is on your mind, you can take a warm bath at any time of the year in these naturally made pools.
Iceland is also great for walking tours. With its fascinating trekking routes, you can discover various native animals such as penguins and whales set amongst one of the most alien type landscapes on planet earth.

Thousands of wildebeests, zebras, antelopes, and gazelles migrate through the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya every year in search of new grazing grounds. The big migration is one of the most spectacular animal experiences in the world.
To make your trip even more special, Kenya and Tanzania are also said to have some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world.
