Ireland Walk Hike Bike created a great national park infographic noting some of the world’s best national parks.
Wherever you go in the world, you’re likely to be not too far away from some spectacular natural scenery. Yes, even if you’re situated in a bustling metropolis, there’s a good chance that there’s a natural wonder to behold relatively nearby. This could either be an unspoiled landscape at its authentic best or a national park with stunning scenery and wildlife in its natural habitat.
Ireland Walk Hike Bike created an infographic outlining some of the world’s best national parks, picking out one from each continent except Antarctica, which has none. Let’s delve a little into these parks and some of the features that make them so attractive to visitors from around the globe.
Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park in China
Beginning in Asia, Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park in China covers a tremendous diversity of natural features including waterfalls, lakes, forests and snow-capped peaks. This park was badly affected by an earthquake in August 2017 but reopened to the public within seven months.
Kakadu National Park in Australia
In Australia, Kakadu National Park contains several fascinating aquatic features and is even good to go for a swim in some places – but avoid those with crocodiles!
The African Serengeti
Tanzania boasts one of the most spectacular parks in the world in Serengeti, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981 and a place where buffalos, elephants and giraffes roam freely.
Killarney National Park in Ireland
In Europe, Killarney National Park in the southwest of Ireland features some of the most captivating, awe-inspiring mountain scenery you could ever wish to see.
Yosemite National Park in California
Moving across to the Americas, Yosemite National Park in California is the natural habitat of magnificent wildlife such as bobcats, coyotes and black bears.
Note: Another grand national park in the united states is Yellowstone, which offers great hiking destinations and beautiful wildlife and scenery. Further south (much further south), you can view stunning jagged peaks at Torres del Paine National Park in Chile.

About Ireland Walk Hike Bike
Ireland Walk Hike Bike was set up with one purpose in mind – to show you the real Ireland that we know and love.

Whatever holiday you want – walk, hike, bike, more active than that or less active than that – we will be delighted to chat with you, work out your ideas & plan your holiday with you to ensure you have a really memorable trip to Ireland.
