Real Pink Lagoon in Mexico? -

Is it real or are these photos photoshoped? It is real and completely natural, and there’s a perfectly scientific explanation for it. Its pink colour is the result of a natural phenomenon – the red plankton combined with the large numbers of shrimp found in the water. The fairy-tale-like landscape is also decorated with piles of salt, as Las Coloradas was once a salt mining town. The lagoon can be found in the tiny fishing village of Las Coloradas, located on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. This lake is part of the Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve and attracts tourists from around the world. www.facebook.com/LasColoradasYucatan

Deep in Alaska explore the most remote national park. You can reach Wrangell–St. Elias National Park via the Ultima Thule planes. They are not for everyone; they carry just two passengers. During take-off and landing, it is necessary to lean towards the front to take the weight off the machine’s tail. But the places you can see are places where no one has ever set foot. You can see grizzly bears, bison, moose, dall sheep, mountain goats, wolves and black bears. Your adventure is defined by you. Throughout the safari you are based at the wonderful Ultima Thule Lodge, where you will decide on your activities during the safari. Six days will cost you from €6,000 per person. www.naturalworldsafaris.com
