1. Fiordland National Park, New Zealand

Well, enough for some scientists to believe that plant and animal species thought to be extinct may very well be alive and thriving within this temperate rainforest. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it’s home to fjords, waterfalls, and miles of pristine beaches.
