9. Misty Fjords, Alaska, USA
Located on the southern tip of the Alaska Panhandle, Misty Fjords is actually a wild and very remote National Monument. Many argue that this is the most original and simultaneously one of the most beautiful fjords in the world; nevertheless, there is no arguing tastes – while the former is questionable, the latter is most definitely accurate. You won’t see any cruise ships here, though; it’s impossible to navigate the steep-walled, narrow passageways. On the other hand, sea kayaking opportunities are exquisite at Misty Fjords, even though they are often challenging due to the frequent storms and high tides.
