Canada: Is this... a polar bear?

Canada: Is this... a polar bear? | Wicked! | Scoop.it

This is Wapusk National Park located on the shores of Hudson Bay. Access to the park is limited due to its remote location and an effort to preserve the park. It's the home to Cape Churchill, which is renowned as the best location in the world to view and photograph wild polar bears.

Singapore: Most amazing sky pool ever

Singapore: Most amazing sky pool ever | Wicked! | Scoop.it

This is literally the most beautiful sky pool I've ever seen, nested at the very top of the Marina Sands hotel in Singapore, on the 56th floor. It's unfortunately for hotel guests only. Either splurge, with rooms that start at €440, or grab a drink at sky bar KuDéTa, that opened on the same floor and also offers an amazing view over the Marina.

Somewhere...: A blue hole in the night | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Stumbled upon this amazing lighted blue hole picture that was apparently initially published by National Geographic. Too bad the credit is so hard to read and there's no information about where that was shot.

These cathedral marbles caves can be found in Patagonia, in the southern part of Chile. To get there, fly from Santiago de Chile south to the closest town, Coyhaique.

Canada: A hike with a view | Wicked! | Scoop.it

This is the Moraine lake, in Alberta, which is among the best hikes in Canada according to Digest Canada. Their advice: Take the short Rock Pile Trail for a beautiful view over the lake and surrounding mountains... and do double check for any incoming grizzly bear with Parks Canada before going in ;-)
