If you love to travel, these iconic destinations located around the world should definitely be included in your itinerary.

Travel website TripAdvisor has compiled 12 suggestions for trips you should do at least once in a lifetime. While avid travellers might have already ticked some off your bucket list, read on to find out if you have missed any of these destinations.

The Northern Lights in Iceland, for instance, look splendid in photos but you would probably enjoy it best seeing it in person.

You can also go for organised tours that allow you to ride snowmobiles under the Northern Lights or attend informative lectures on the Northern Lights by researchers in Laukvik, Norway.

If you are into diving, you should plan a trip to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, which supports a diversity of marine life, including many vulnerable or endangered species.

According to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, thirty species of whales, dolphins and porpoises, as well as six species of sea turtles have been recorded in the reef - making this a memorable and unique dive surrounded by nature.
