4. Yellowstone, US

It’s the colours of the Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park – shades of tan, orange, yellow and bright white – that make it such a unique place to visit.

Feeding from Norris Geyser Basin, the water might look inviting, but it’s far too hot to swim in.

Those desperate to get wet can head to the Gardner River, also known as The Boiling River, to take a dip during daylight hours – meanwhile, everyone else can follow the easy walking trails.

5. El Tatio, Chile

This geyser field in northern Chile is one of the world’s largest and is surrounded by volcanoes. To see it in the best light, you have to get here by 6am – it’ll be absolutely freezing but is definitely worth the effort.

At this time of day, each geyser is covered by a column of steam that condenses in the cold morning air. There are over 80 active geysers here, that generally erupt to just under a metre, although the highest measured eruption is said to be 6m.
