Top 3 natural parks to see in EuropeTuesday 27 September 2016
Whether it's for a break or getting back to the simple things, nature is calling. Go on a journey to discover the flora and fauna of some of Europe's most stunning protected sites. From Croatia to Italy via Spain, here are some of Europe's green gems.
The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia
At the heart of western Croatia, you'll find the "Devil's Garden", called as such by the locals after several supernatural events. This, however, doesn't put off visitors, who come to admire the 16 lakes connected by 92 waterfalls and surrounded by a dense forest.
Snowden National Park, United Kingdom
Dominated by Mount Snowden, this Welsh national park is a favorite among hikers and fans of outdoor activities. A break at the Pistyll Rhaeadr, the country's highest waterfall, is a must, without forgetting the slopes of Cadair Idris, a chain of five mountainous peaks.
The Cabrera National Park, Spain
The archipelago of Cabrera was named a National Maritime and Terrestrial Park in 1991. The landscape, interspersed with cliffs, caves and a small coastal port, has a very rich vegetation with more than 450 vegetal species and seabeds harboring dolphins and turtles.
