The 10 Best Travel Photos From Last Week

Clearly, #traveldeeper was craving that sweet mountain air last week. We peeked over the edge of the Gullfoss Waterfall in Iceland, trekked up to a remote guesthouse in Slovakia, drank in the epic vistas of Lake Louise in Banff National Park and floated above it all at the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico (photo above by @pachells). Check out the rest of the best from last week’s @afarmedia below and don’t forget to use #traveldeeper for a chance to be featured next week!

Thanks to @heartsmybackpack for finding the mountain retreat of our dreams! #traveldeeper

(Chata pri Zelenom is a remote chalet hidden away in the High Tatra Mountains. It’s a 3-4 hour hike from the nearest village and worth every step!)
