In honor of yesterday’s World Tourism Day, the Telegraph offered up some ideas on what travel experiences you need to do before you die. 

The list starts with northern lights, and Nigel Tisdall, Telegraph Travel’s northern lights expert writes that “it is one of the great, timeless thrills of travel…”

Passionate travelers should also check off the Galapagos Islands. 

“The Galapagos Islands is probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world,” says Mark Carwardine, Telegraph Travel’s Galapagos Islands expert. 

A trek to Machu Picchu is another destination that is a must with Telegraph Travel’s Chris Moss saying that while popular and full of high expectations, the journey does not disappoint. 

“No other South American archeological site comes close when it comes to visitor numbers and broad appeal,” said Moss.

One timely recommendation is to see New England in the fall. While leaves change in the fall just about everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, the explosion of color in North America and particularly New England is something worth checking out IRL.

“Photographs can’t do justice to the startling scarlet, gold, purple and orange that blaze across the hills and sweep into valleys,” writes Paul Wade, Telegraph’s New England expert. 

These are but a few of Telegraph’s more than 30 recommendations. See the rest here
