Hit the road and snap yourself in an extraordinary situation. That’s all you need to do to win a travel voucher in our Instagram contest, #WhatOnEarth

Twelve weeks have passed and €1500 in vouchers have been given away in Kiwi.com‘s ongoing photo contest. We have seen pictures rare and bizarre, as well as cute and genuinely beautiful. So what is stopping you from taking part?

Get inspired by this round’s lucky winner Ashley Rivers, known to the Insta world as @travelinghappiness.

“I am a rock climber and love travelling, so I am very grateful for winning,” she told us.

“Believe it or not, this photo was taken at Grand Canyon. I went a few weeks ago and the park is just full of life.”

 

 

Round 6 of our #WhatOnEarth photo contest is over, and the winner is @travelinghappiness with this very grand-looking canyon picture. Tell us a little about it. “Believe it or not, this photo was taken at the Grand Canyon. I went a few weeks ago and the park is just full of life. My boyfriend and I decided to hike through the Rims into the canyon and this was a beautiful stop on the way. It was my very first time there and I was seriously blown away by the life and greenery.” Our judge for this round, Alicia Kabay reckons so too: “If I could be stuck in one place forever, this would be it.” So well done, and enjoy your €200 travel voucher. #hiking #outdoorwomen #backpacking #grandcanyonnationalpark #grandcanyon We’d love you to submit your bizarre and beautiful travel photos to our WhatOnEarth Instagram contest.

“My boyfriend and I decided to hike through the Rims into the canyon and this was a beautiful stop down the way. This was my very first time there and I was seriously blown away by the life and greenery.”

She and her boyfriend will receive a €100 travel voucher each and they already have a good idea how to use them.

“I would love to travel to South America, so maybe there,” Ashley added. 

Kiwi.com’s Quality Specialist Alicia Kabay took her chance to pick this round’s winner and here’s why: “If I could be stuck in one place forever, this would be it.”

The runner-up for the round with a magical number six was Olda Čabelka alias @ca_pi_ca who got snapped in this photo in Iceland.

 

 

The runner-up in round 6 of our #WhatOnEarth photo contest is @ca_pi_ca who wins a €50 travel voucher. So what’s going on?! “My colleagues from Guesthouse Brekka and I went on a trip to Aldeyjarfoss. It was the last trip for us that season. My friend Radek (the guy behind the camera) took us to this waterfall and told me it was one of the great waterfalls in the country. The weather wasn’t nice; raining, a strong wind, but it was true Iceland. When we climbed down near the small lake, Tibor (the guy with the yellow and white scarf) asked me to jump naked into the lake to take a cool photo. I just told him ‘sure’ and in we went! Some girls on top of the rocks cheered us, and we tried to look like we were in a pool in Tenerife!” We’re not entirely sure it looks like that, but it’s a great picture anyway! #waterfalls #iceland #aldeyjarfoss #icelandtravel #exploreiceland We’d love you to submit your bizarre and beautiful travel photos to our WhatOnEarth Instagram contest.

“Me and my Czech colleagues from Guesthouse Brekka went to trip to Aldeyjarfoss. It was the last trip for us in this season,” Olda said.

“My friend Radek ( the guy who was behind the camera ) took us there and told us that this is one of the greatest waterfalls in Iceland. The weather wasn’t nice, raining, strong wind, but it is true Iceland.”

“Some girl’s on top of the rocks made applause for us, and we tried to appear like we are in a pool in Tenerife.”

Olda will receive a €50 voucher for his future journeys.

Just like in the previous rounds, we received numerous entries, and we would love to feature the ones that caught our attention but didn’t make it to a winning position.

Such as @veraraven, a chocoholic, bookworm, music lover and travel enthusiast from the Philipines who took this picture of these giant sculptures during her stay in Esbjerg, Denmark. 

This masterpiece, called Man meets the Sea, resembles the meeting between pure, unspoilt mankind and nature. The statues greet the visitors who come to the town by sea. 

@i.wells snapped this amazing view of a sunset over Prizren from the Kalaja Fortress.

Prizren is a city in Kosovo that lies on the borders with Macedonia and is separated from Albania by the Šar mountains. 

@i.wells comments that catching this view is essential to experiencing the whole atmosphere of the city.

@happy_andreew‘s photo is a celebration of a successful ascent to Lomnický Štít in High Tatras, Slovakia.

Apparently, the crew is missing one member that didn’t make it up to the top. Luckily, not because of an accident, the climber just decided to go back in a cable car.

@r_coops2 is a real mountain lover. “I had the most amazing time hiking in the Albanian mountains,” she commented on her snap and her account proves her admiration of higher altitudes.

Apart from Albania,  she has visited the High Tatras in Slovakia, the Carpathians in Romania, where she took a picture with Dracula’s castle, as well as North Wales where she went camping.

Presumably, the exhausting hikes are the reason why she has decided to relax with some Yoga in India.
