12 Natural Wonders You Can Visit Via Public Transportation

The world is waiting, and it's easy to get to.

Many of the world’s natural wonders are hidden in remote deserts or dense jungles, far from the nearest bus stop or subway station. It’s not unexpected—harsh climates, powerful waters, and bubbling lava can make landmarks both awe-inspiring and inaccessible. And sometimes a long, arduous journey makes the destination that much more impressive.

But if you’re itching to take in some planet-produced glory and don’t have access to a car—or a camel—you’re not necessarily out of luck. Many of the buses and trains that we take to work can lead to some incredible sights. From a brightly colored salt lake to a retreating glacier, these are 12 natural wonders that are accessible by public transportation.
