The most beautiful forests in the world

Gorbeia Natural Park
What do you think if we start the week knowing some of the most beautiful natural places in the world? Specifically, today we want to focus on forests , ecosystems full of life, on which animals, plants and, of course, human beings depend, among other things because they serve as natural filters for water. Today forests cover only a third of the surface, although some eight thousand years ago they occupied practically half of the planet. Even so, there are still more than 2,000 indigenous cultures living in them.

Visiting these natural spaces is a real gift for the senses, since it is possible to enjoy different aromas, colors and textures. In addition, their shapes and colors vary depending on the time of year. Today at Vuela Viajes we want to take a tour of some of the most beautiful forests in the world. Of course, we apologize in advance for all those who have had to leave in the inkwell.
