German landscape photographer Nils Leonhardt shares his top six favorite places to see and experience around the world. Pairing travel with his passion for capturing unique and natural points in time means that Nils has ventured to some of the most beautiful, serene, and exciting places on Earth.

#1 – Isle of Harris, Scotland

Without doubt, I regard Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland as the most beautiful place on earth. As soon as you are immersed, nature becomes a complete aesthetic experience. Finding your thoughts is what this extraordinary part of the world is all about.

#2 – Matterhorn, Switzerland

One of my favorite experiences is to witness the Alpen Glow on Matterhorn on icy winter mornings. It’s about pursuing the elements and waiting in anticipation for the light to unveil the contrasting beauty. The fresh air not only ignites creativity, but also brings you close to nature’s beating chest.

#3 – Dolomites, Italy

The Dolomites are a place brimming with landscapes in every direction where you can lose yourself. As you trek each corner and the unique mountains continually protrude from the horizon, you simply want to proceed for the sake of exploration. Everywhere you look is positively breath-taking.

#4 – Kingdom of Bhutan

If you want to explore a world vastly different from the one surrounding you locally each day, a trip to Bhutan can be the eye-opening change. With friendly locals, vivid natural settings, inspiring natural light, and plenty of opportunities for adventure—both of a rugged nature and the more cerebral experience of learning about the monks and monasteries—it is an excellent choice to help you get off the grid and truly reconnect with the world.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” — Rumi

#5 – Wanaka, New Zealand

Featuring both a vibrant lifestyle and stunning natural beauty, Wanaka is a true haven for outdoor people. The potpourri of activities available will keep happy even the most active traveler.

#6 – Bohemia, Czech Republic

Getting lost in deep snow in the vast and deserted area of Bohemia is an experience not to be missed. Traveling to this beautiful place brings you away from the frantic chaos of the city into a silent wonderland of wood and moorland.
