Even if you’ve visited any of these five national parks, you’ve likely never seen them like this. At Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, you can explore Exit Glacier Crevasse, see the shocking glacier recession, watch a whale breach and kayak through glaciers.

At Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, you can check out the Nahuku Lava Tube and fly over an active volcano.

Then, explore caves and experience life as a bat in New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

As one of the darkest places in North America, exploring the night sky in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is an awe-inspiring experience.

Finally, you’re off to Florida’s Dry Tortugas National Park to swim through a coral reef, check out the Windjammer shipwreck and tour Fort Jefferson.
