The third largest desert in the world, the Sahara is comparable in size to the area of the United States and covers much of North Africa, including Egypt, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. For miles and miles, huge sand dunes are the only thing the eye can see, giving a magical but intimidating appearance.
In Norway lies an intricate labyrinth of over one thousand fjords, UNESCO-protected and exquisitely beautiful. The most iconic are the Naeroyfjord, Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord and encompass the typical blue, still water and majestic cliffs they are famous for. You can explore the fjords in a number of ways, by kayak, boat or hiking the mountains.
