Revealed: the 17 ultimate bucket-list travel experiences

Desperate for travel inspiration? Look no further; a new survey, which polled 1,000 people from the UK, has revealed the ultimate bucket list destinations for travel dreamers everywhere.

And the Northern Lights, one of the world’s most beautiful natural phenomenon, has been deemed the most popular experience to aim for in your lifetime.

It was followed closely by safari through the African savannah, and a hike across the Great Wall of China…

However it’s safe to say that some of the others on the list, compiled by TotallyMoney.com, were a little more niche.

Think natural geysers, daring mountain climbs, and an unforgettable New Year’s Eve, to name but three.

The bucket list isn’t the only thing that TotallyMoney.com have come up with; they’ve also got a handy new Bucket List Calculator on their site. 

All you have to do is tell them your age, your annual income, and all the places you’d love to see in your lifetime.

They’ll then work out the total cost, as well as the amount you’ll need to squirrel away each month to be able to pay it all off.

It’s a tad boring and grown up, but we guess it’s the only way to make those dreams a reality.

Scroll through to see the ultimate countdown of the top 17 bucket list destinations - and add to your own wanderlist accordingly...
