Soul Stirring Experiences shared by Travel Bloggers

We live on a planet which has unfathomable beauty in all its extremes, that has the power to stir your soul. As you travel and discover more of this beauty, the more you get lost. It is this very feeling that inspires and drives us to travel and experience the world as much as we can.

If you are still wondering what I am talking about, then take a look at the below experiences shared by travel bloggers from around the world, that left them speechless.


Climbing a Bell Tower to Watch the Sunrise in Santorini, Greece

While crowds flock to watch the world famous Santorini sunset, I have never felt more at peace then when I climbed a bell tower to watch the sunrise as the entire island still slept. – Jennifer (World On A Whim)


Up Close with Gorillas in Uganda

There’s nothing that prepares you for seeing these creatures up close in their own environment. Simply breathtaking. – Becky (Becky The Traveller)


Watching sunrise from Borobudur Temple, Indonesia

There is a sense of calm and serenity as the stupas emerge from the darkness around you and the light in the sky changes colour with the sun emerging between the distant volcanoes. – Marianne (Mum On The Move)


Playtime with Dolphins off the coast in Gran Canaria

If you visit Puerto Rico be sure to take a boat ride out to sea, watching dolphins swim freely in the wild is a beautiful experience. – Emily (Emily’s Voyage)


Sunrise at the Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Despite the crowds and early wake up call, seeing the sun rise behind the temple is a magical once in a lifetime experience. – Jen & Stevo (Two Can Travel)


Camping on the edge of the Sierra Negra Crater on Isabela Island, Galapagos

*No Words* – Georgia (Georgia In The Jungle)


Reaching the peak of the Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand

After a tough climb, including pulling yourself along with chains in gale force winds, the view of the Emerald Lakes from the top makes it all worth it. – Laura (Wander With Laura)


Snorkeling with Sharks in Bora Bora

Head into the blue lagoons of Bora Bora for a once in a lifetime opportunity to snorkel among the sharks! – Harmony (Momma To Go)


Sunset over the Wadi Rum Desert, Jordan

Watching the sun set over the vast plains of the Wadi Rum desert, we truly knew we’d found our place as a traveling family. – Keri (Our Globetrotters)


Hiking to the Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan

The experience is unforgettable and no trip to The Land of the Thunder Dragon is complete without a visit to Tiger’s Nest! – Nikki & Michelle (Cheeky Passports)


Trek to the Kandungaw Peak in Cebu, Philippines

My knees were still shaking as we descended, but I was smiling and so elated that I had conquered my fear of heights. – Laiariel (The Little Lai)


Inside a Volcano in Iceland

Getting inside a 4000 year old volcano was indeed a memorable experience and was totally worth every penny I spent. – Raksha (Solo Passport)


Stepping Foot on Antarctica

Spotting, photographing and getting close to icebergs of all shapes and sizes, is one of the best things about visiting Antarctica. – Matilda (The Travel Sisters)


Swimming alongside Whale Sharks in Maldives

While Maldives occupies the top spot on a lot of travellers bucket list, diving in the clear tropical waters of Maldives is indeed a soul stirring experience, especially when you get to dive with sharks, manta rays and the gentle giants – the whale sharks. – Arnav (The ETLR Blog)


A road trip in Cape Breton, Canada

The breathtaking vista in Cabot Trail makes a 30-hour journey from Toronto worthwhile. – Julie (Always on the Way Travel)


Standing in the Shadow of Australia’s Epic Rock

If you want to be moved by a magical, deeply spiritual place, head to Australia’s Red Centre and look upon Uluru (aka Ayers Rock), a place of significance for the Aboriginal people, and a spot that you can’t help but be awed by. – Amy & Nathan (Two Drifters)


Rappelling in Costa Rica

Watching helplessly with a mixture of pride and fear as your child jumps backwards a couple hundred feet down a mountain while waterfall rappelling in Arenal, Costa Rica – Nicole (Go Far Grow Close)


Sunset view in Roopkund Trek Summit Camp in Uttarakhand

The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen while I was closest to the nature I have ever been – Anuradha (Travel Highway)


Walking between two seas in Prasonisi,Rhodes Island

A walk between Aegean and Mediterranean seas will be a special experience from Rhodes Island. – Natalia (My TripHack)


Pack your bags and get out there. Wherever you go, you will always have an experience to remember.

  1. Thanks for including my experience too in such an amazing list of curated experiences.Hope to get other similar experiences too in the near future.

    Definitely going to witness in sunrise in Angkor Wat soon.

  2. All these experiences look totally amazing and want to do all of them. As a European I really want to do the climbing a Bell Tower to Watch the Sunrise in Santorini, Greece. This is suppose to be one of the most amazing things to do in Euroland. One day, one day 🙂

  3. A few of these experiences are already on my bucket list; but I’ve managed to add a few more to it now as well, thanks to this post 🙂

  4. Loved reading all these experiences. Those who travel are really a blessed lot as we are able to experience so many things which many cannot. Recently had the privilege of being brushed aside by a Gorilla in the jungles of Rwanda!

  5. I love reading about the little moments on the road that have taken people’s breath away! If this doesn’t inspire people to travel, I don’t know what will.

  6. Those kind of posts are just the best…reading all those exciting stories around the world, they make us travel with them! It shows as well what a big travel community we bloggers are 🙂 Cheers to all of you!

  7. Wow being up close to Gorillas would’ve been a crazy feeling. We would like to experience what Becky experienced! The Borobudur Temples are quite crazy as well, we didn’t go see them yet, but can’t wait to do so!

  8. Wonderful compilation. From the images at least, I think I’m most drawn to the morning after camping on the Sierra Negra Crater on Isabela Island, Galapagos.

  9. Some wonderful experiences here. Too many to pick a favourite, but I shall try. For me, ‘Camping on the edge of the Sierra Negra Crater on Isabela Island, Galapagos’ would be a dream. That inversion, where the cloud is pushing up against the mountain. WOW.

  10. Wow! That’s a beautiful compilation!! Esp, Up Close with Gorillas and Camping on the edge of the Sierra Negra Crater are just too stunning!
    Reminds me of the soul stirring experiences I’ve had!

  11. These are really some one of a kind experiences! I would love to set foot in Antarctica, but the really high costs have always made me postpone this trip. That’s my ultimate travel bucket list experience.

  12. That is a superb compilation. I haven’t experienced any of these but surely wanna do all in near future. Camping at Galapagos, Roopkund trek and inside a volcano are the most thrilling ones for me.

  13. What a great positive post! It brought back a few memories for me too! Bhutan is high on my list. I’d love to take part if you do a similar post in future!

  14. I have lived a couple of these experiences myself and I hope to see the gorillas in Uganda (or Rwanda) in December. We are lucky that, despite the massive tourism, we can still enjoy experiences like these ones . .

  15. Bhutan has been at the top of my list of places I would love to visit in this lifetime. I can’t even imagine how wonderful it must feel to hike the Tiger’s Nest and see that beautiful view from atop. This is such a great list!

  16. Thank you so much for permitting me to be part of this. I’m so happy after knowing all other travelers experience from their amazing travels. It is always great to read something like this that will inspire us to continue on traveling and find out new places that will surely leave us in awe.

  17. There seems to be a sunrise trend! And Kandungaw Peak in Cebu, that trek looks absolutely stunning. I also love the quote on the cover photo for this post 🙂

  18. These are all incredible experiences – and super inspiring! Sign me up for the Gorillas in Rwanda, the Galapagos and Uluru.

  19. Wow! What a fantastic list! I’ve done a few of these myself and the rest would make good additions to my bucket list!

  20. Wow, there are some real bucket list items on the list, I think I’ve only experienced about 20% of the list! I’m visiting Santorini this winter and I hope the weather is good enough to experience a wonderful sunrise.

  21. Wherever you go, you will always have an experience to remember. I agree with that and i have traveled to some places you mentioned you as well. Happy continued travels to you 🙂

  22. Beautiful pictures and great experiences ! That’s why travelling is so great, not only because you live such great moments, but also because it’s great to share them with friends and family and make them travel through our eyes 😉 Really appreciated this post!

  23. What an amazing list of experiences! Gosh. Remarkable ones. You have curated it fabulously! 🙂 The quote on top is a winner. I have done a few and I must say tiger’s nest monastery is one out of the world experience 🙂 Truly blissful.

  24. I love this post with many beautiful moments around the world. I have been only to Uluru from this list and I must say it was a memorable experience. So many more places to explore. Thanks for sharing.
