It may seem small from the outside, but Europe's dazzling diversity is second to none. From icy archipelagos in the Arctic Circle to towering sand dunes on the coast of France, these are its best bucket list-worthy natural wonders...
Cliffs of Moher, Republic of Ireland
The towering Cliffs of Moher stretch along Ireland's Atlantic coast, offering visitors an intoxicating blend of terrifying heights and some of the world's most beautiful scenery. In stormy weather, the cliffs and raging sea below are particularly impressive.
As Catedrais beach, Spain
This stunning beach is home to colossal tide-carved arches and caves. During high tide most of the arches disappear underwater, but at low tide visitors are free to wander the sandy beach to marvel at nature's architectural skills.
Grande Dune du Pilat, France
Located in southwest of France, the Grande Dune du Pilat is the highest dune in Europe at nearly 400 feet tall. At 1.7 miles long and 2,000 feet wide.
Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland
Legend has it that this natural wonder was built by a giant, though geologists have since discovered that these basalt columns forming a cobbled path into the sea is the work of volcanic activity. Either way, it's amazing to see up close...
Fingal's Cave, Scotland
Tucked away on an uninhabited island in the Inner Hebrides, not many visitors make it to Fingal's Cave in Scotland. Like the Giant's Causeway, the sea cave is made up of massive basalt columns, giving it a magnificent sense of natural architecture.
