Bryce Canyon, USA
Renowned for the strong smell of pine that hangs in the air, Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, is a great place to enjoy hiking. Sleep under the stars, take a hike to fully explore Bryce Canyon’s giant pointed rock formations.

Also regarded as “The Valley of the Moon,” the word Wadi is an Arabic for “valley” while Wadi means “high” or “elevated.” Campers can hike, or camel trek thorough Wadi Rum. Set-up your camp then prepare your meal on the fire, crash for the night in a Bedouin tent, feel and breathe in the scent of sand.
