With so much natural beauty to see throughout the world, deciding which natural wonders to visit first can be difficult. To assist, we have developed a list of the top national parks in the globe, based on reader votes and expert opinions, as well as considerations such as accessibility, wildlife abundance, camping options, and beautiful natural monuments.

Please vote for your favourite destinations below to help us select next year’s ranking. (Please note that the coronavirus outbreak may affect some of the destinations listed below. Before traveling, consult the CDC and the US Department of State.

Yellowstone

Yellowstone National Park is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with magnificent peaks and clean lakes. Multi-coloured pools swirl around hot springs, lush forests weave through vast meadows, and erupting geysers shoot torrents of boiling water into the air. With so much unspoilt natural beauty, it is little surprise that John Colter (a scout for explorers Lewis and Clark) was suspected of being embezzled.

Nowadays, there is no denying that the park is spectacular. Prepare to share the trails with permanent residents including as buffalo, elk, and even grizzlies as you travel through its 3,000-plus square miles of mountains, canyons, geysers, and waterfalls.

Yosemite

Yosemite National Park, one of California’s most challenging natural settings, spans roughly 1,200 square miles of utter awe, with towering waterfalls, millennia-old sequoia trees, dramatic, intimidating cliff faces, and some of the country’s most unusual rock formations. Despite its huge size, Yosemite Valley’s 8-square-mile area hosts the majority of tourist activity.

Half Dome and El Capitan, two of the park’s most iconic landmarks, are located here, as are good hiking trails through the natural wonders. Yosemite is accessible to even unskilled hikers: Adventure outfitters in the area offer guided tours and climbing lessons. Just do not expect to be able to do it on your own. The major obstacle, as it is in so many other American tourist spots, is the crowds.

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park, on the boundary of Canada and the United States, is known as the “Crown of the Continent” because it is at the headwaters of streams that go into the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Hudson Bay. The park, which is popular with hikers, has a range of paths for all ability levels, ranging from the easy to the difficult.

In addition, the park has over 700 lakes, several waterfalls, and two mountain ranges scattered across more than 1 million acres, all of which are home to a diverse spectrum of animals.

It has a lot of history in addition to its stunning geological characteristics. The picturesque 52-mile Going-to-the-Sun Road is a National Historic Landmark and an engineering marvel that runs through the park.
