Valbone in Albania; DH keeps promising but still waiting

Done Iceland before it was fashionable and it was amazing!

I would love with all my heart to go to iceland!

Valbone looks stunning - old fashioned wilderness!

Northern Finland in the summer: midnight sun, huge reindeer herds and amazing emptiness
Come to that, Northern Finland in the winter, to see the Northern lights...

Iceland is fantastic! Volcanos, geysers, bubbling mudpools, waterfalls, glaciers, icebergs..... Went for my honeymoon 15yrs ago and would love to go back someday.

I think I'm going to have to save my pennies Seeline!

It certainly ain't cheap but so worth it!! we hired a car and drove round the island - beautiful. We stayed in some fairly basic B&Bs to help keep the cost down.

I think I'm going to have to look into it seriously. What a shame you cant get a ferry from the uk - then we could take our tent. Would be ace to camp around Iceland!

And i would also love to see the Northern lights ...

Oh and go Wolf Watching in Romania - not sure if that counts as a natural wonder but the forests there are supposed to be beautiful ...

The Giants Causeway would be awesome! (to coin a phrase)

Chamonix Mont Blanc we went up in the cable car a few years ago in early June. Over 30 degrees in Chamonix, minus 3 at the top. A view to stun. I swear we could see our house it was that clear!

Picos De Europa and coveniently there is a Paradore! The milky light is wonderful.

Puy de Dome - a volcano

Calanques de Cassis - Fjords, but warmer.
