A member of the official seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is spectacular. There's no other word for it. At 446km long and one mile deep, this epic gorge is one of the quitessential icons of Arizona.
The Giant's Causeway
Thousands of tourists fly to Belfast every year to see this natural beauty in nearby Antrim. The rock formed a 'honeycomb' shape millions of years ago when the molten lava met with the ocean and cooled off very quickly.

At 1.7km wide and 108 metres high, this gorgeous waterfall is technically the largest in the world. Located on the border between Sambia and Zimbabwe, these falls are also know as "Mosi-oa-Tunya", which means "smoke and thunder". There's no wonder - that amount of falling water must make a lot of noise!

There are hundreds of mountains across the world - and even through the Matterhorn may not be the tallest or the greatest, it is certainly the most striking. Its peak consists of a four sided pyramid, each face corresponding to the points on the compass.

This quintessential image of Australia is 350 metres high and over nine kilometres in circumference. You haven't really been to Australia until you've seen this breathtaking sandstone rock at sunset. Gorgeous.

The Tepuis in Venezuela
These stunning table top mountains in South America served as inspiration for the Pixar film 'Up'. As they tend to stand alone as separate entities, some play host to wildlife species that are unique to that very mountain!

The Amazon Rainforest
This stunning jungle is the biggest in the world, holding over half of the world's remaining rainforest. Definitely one to visit for the stunning wildlife.

At the complete polar opposite of the spectrum is the Sahara Desert. The biggest of its kind in the world, sand dunes here can reach as high as 600 feet!

The Dead Sea is so called because it is nearly nine times saltier than the ocean. It makes it very difficult for wildlife to live there, but you've got to admit, it's great for floating in!
