We know you have every U.S. national park on your bucket list. But what about every national park in the world? According to the BBC, in 2012, there were more than 4,000 national parks on Earth, dedicated to the conservation of landscapes and wildlife. What a dream that would be, to visit all 4,000! But to make your bucket list a little more attainable, we adapted an article by the RV travel blog “Trekkn”, in which the authors worked with other travel bloggers to create a list of 47 of the best national parks in the world. The list includes parks from over 30 countries.
National parks are some of the most visited places in the world. In 2019, more than 327 million people visited U.S. national parks and monuments. As tourism begins to ramp up again, national parks across the globe can expect more and more visitors.
