Prague, The Czech Republic
A trip to Prague is a fantastic way to spend your birthday. The capital of the Czech Republic is known for its diverse Gothic and Baroque architecture, unique buildings, and extensive, green parks that overlook the Vltava River. And let’s not forget its delicious beer, of course.
You can learn more about art, history, literature, music, and architecture in the city’s museums. You can also stroll around the historic part of town, enjoy majestic palaces and breathtaking cathedrals, grab a cold beer or eat a delicious traditional pastry.
Moreover, there are plenty of activities for the adventurers. For example, you can visit Prague Ranger where you can shoot legendary weapons. If you are more into relaxing activities, celebrate your birthday with a picnic, for example, in Rieger Gardens, and blow out the candles as you watch the most beautiful sunset in the city.
Grand Canyon, USA
The Grand Canyon is the type of place that overwhelms every visitor. Would you not like to spend your special day somewhere that fills you with awe?
This steep-sided canyon is located in Arizona. It is almost 450m long and more than 1800m deep. Explore the Grand Canyon on your birthday by doing several activities, such as
- Walk the Trail of Time, where you can learn more about the canyon’s geological history.
- Hike or bike on designated paths and roads.
- Go on a rafting trip on the Colorado River, in the Grand Canyon National Park.
- Ride the Grand Canyon Railway and enjoy the views.
- Take a scenic drive.
- Observe the scenery from the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a horseshoe-shaped walkway standing over the Canyon (it is not part of the National Park).
- Explore the Canyon further with a Jeep tour.
This unique place has a lot to offer, and you can expect a dynamic birthday here, in one of the best-known natural spots in the world.
Lagoa das Sete Cidades, Azores
The Azores’ nine volcanic islands are a natural paradise. The Portuguese archipelago is a dream destination for everyone who loves greenery and outdoor activities. Its beaches, hills, and cliffs impress everyone who visits the region.
The most notorious natural monument in the Azores is the Lagoa das Sete Cidades (Lagoon of the Seven Cities). The lake seems to be divided into two lakes: the green lagoon and the blue lagoon. The two meet in a narrow strait above which there is a bridge.
Despite the (tragically beautiful) legends that emerged from this feature, the lakes are ecologically distinct, which causes them to appear different colored.
Regardless of the scientific reasons, it is a breathtaking place to visit. And it can definitely be the background of an unforgettable birthday.
Scottish Highlands, Scotland
What if you could spend your birthday in the place where Harry Potter and James Bond were filmed? The Scottish Highlands’ beauty does not go unnoticed, not even in Hollywood.
Explore this wildland and let nature’s birthday present to you be the stunning Scottish landscapes. Explore the splendid Isle of Skye, probably one of the most admired places in the Highlands due to its magical beauty. Walk along the astonishing beaches and enjoy the remarkable cliffs at Duncansby Head. If you dare, hike to the highest peak in the UK, Ben Nevis. Oh, and who could forget the one and only Loch Ness?
Giza Pyramids, Egypt
Travel to one of the most visited places on Earth for your birthday. The pyramids of Giza are impressive monuments that draw a lot of attention. Celebrate your birthday in a place of culture and history.
There are plenty of activities awaiting at the Giza plateau but start by simply admiring the immensity of the structures. There are three massive pyramids plus the unique Sphynx in the complex. You can visit the interior of the pyramids and admire the scenery.
If you like to explore the surroundings, you can get a quad bike and the most remote but equally amazing parts of the Giza plateau. Overnight, you can watch a Sound & Lights show, in which the story of Ancient Egypt is told by a narrator.
