National Geographic Travel reveals the most stunning spring destinations
Svalbard
If you're a fan of winter activities, but are in need of some sun, then perhaps a May trip to Svalbard is in order.

It notes: 'The Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard is located about 620 miles south of the North Pole. In late spring, the sun never dips below the horizon - meaning you can sponge up all the Vitamin D you desire.'

Popular activities in the area include hiking, iceberg kayaking and wildlife spotting.
Namibia
During spring, Namibia is pegged as the perfect destination with reduced travel costs and cooler evenings.

In late May, National Geographic Travel says that the watering holes start to dry up again, which lures giraffes and black rhinos from their hiding spots.

If you're more of an adrenaline junkie, head to the Namib desert for a spot of sandboarding on the dunes.
Japan
If you want to catch the wonderful cherry blossom season in Japan, National Geographic Travel says to head there between mid-January to May.

Recommended activities include taking a dip in the hot springs in Kawazu and boating down the Kitakami River to Tenshochi Park where 10,000 cherry trees arc into irresistible pale pink avenues'.
Upper Amazon, Peru
For travellers looking for a sense of adventure, National Geographic Travel proposes a trip to the upper Amazon in Peru.

It notes that by May, the water levels will have increased, allowing for 'improved navigation and cooler temperatures'.

Israel
If you're looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, National Geographic Travel says travellers should head to Jerusalem to celebrate Easter with thousands of pilgrims.

If the crowds get too overwhelming, visitors are told to take a gondola ride to King Herod's 2,000-year-old Masada fortress or set off on a peaceful morning boat ride across the Sea of Galilee.

Columbia and Snake River
To see North America’s greatest concentration of waterfalls, head to the Snake and Columbia Rivers, which pass through Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.

National Geographic Travel says that the waterway is best visited in spring when winter melt ensures a thunderous show.
The Seychelles
The Seychelles are a lot more than seashells and tropical fish and powdery sand, says National Geographic Travel.

It highlights that the archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean is home to granite cliffs and 100-foot-tall palm trees, wild tortoises, and 275 species of birds.

In April, the seasonal shift in trade winds promises cool breezes with a high of around 29 degrees Celsius-perfect for beach days and evening outdoor dining.
