Probably one the most unconventional waterfalls in the world, Gulfoss can be found on the southern coast of Iceland and as you can see the water isn’t always falling!

Caracol Falls

Behind Iguazu Falls (#2) this is the second most popular tourist attraction in Brazil. To get to the base of the waterfall you have to take a steep 927 step trail but for those of you adverse to climbing there is a 100ft observation tower nearby with incredible views.

Plitvice Lakes

Located in Croatia, it’s something like the Grand Canyon…except with bright green colored moss lining the sides and crystal clear lakes at the bottom. And thanks to mineral runoff from the Dinerac Alps the water is uniquely turquoise colored.
