The Most Enchanting Forest Destinations to Visit Around the World

Being surrounded by the beauty of nature is an ethereal experience. Forests can make us feel as if we are living in a fairy tale, as if we don’t have a care in the world, and like we are children again. Aside from that, walking through a forest can also provide some health perks, like stress relief. Best of all, nature can inspire you with its magnificent view. Because of these reasons, it is not surprising that more and more people are picking forests as their top travel destinations. So, what are the most enchanting forest destinations in the world?

1. Sequoia National Park, USA

As its name implies, Sequoia National Park is where the famous sequoia trees are located. These trees, being exceptionally large, make up the infamous “Giant Forest” where you can walk through nature and feel as if you are a tiny ant. Seriously, when you see how large these trees are, you begin to feel very small. They truly make you feel as if you are in a fairy tale. Additionally, this forest is also the home of General Sherman, one of the largest trees in the world (and the largest tree width wise). Aside from trees, this tourist destination has a lot of spectacular views because it is surrounded by mountains, rivers, and winding trails. Best of all, you can do tons of outdoor activities in this forest. For instance, you can go hiking, fishing, and camping. As such, you’ll definitely enjoy your stay at this beautiful tourist destination. If you enjoy hiking, I recommend checking out the Tokopah Falls Trail.

2. Black Forest, Germany

This list of the most enchanting forest destinations in the world would not be complete without the Black Forest. You may be familiar with this place because it is where some of the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales are set. It’s also pretty close to the infamous Fairy-Tale castle in Germany.

The Black Forest is dense. Aside from plants and trees, you will also enjoy the picturesque views of the villages surrounding the forest. You will also see lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and skiing trails in this awesome tourist destination. The best part is that you will not only enjoy the natural beauty of this place. The area also has a rich culture that will make your trip a memorable one.

3. Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan

The Sagano Bamboo Forest is a popular tourist destination in Japan. As you know, the bamboo tree is considered auspicious, and it is a major part of the country’s culture.


Inside this forest, there is a path that crosses through the bamboo trees. From there, you will be amazed and inspired by the picturesque view when the sun shines through the towering bamboo trees.

4. Waipoua Forest, New Zealand

Finally, the last on this list of enchanting forest destinations in the world is the Waipoua Forest. This natural attraction is the home of Te Matua Ngahere and Tane Mahuta, two of the largest kauri trees in the world. Aside from gigantic trees, this forest is also the home of different animals, specifically the North Island brown kiwi and the North Island kokako. As such, this forest is the perfect destination for people who love exotic birds.

In my opinion, nothing says adventure quite like a journey into the woods. So, step out of your comfort zone, enter the wilderness, and enjoy these beautiful forest destinations on your next adventure.
