Fairytale Vacations

Wanting to plan your fairytale vacations for the year(s)?  If you are looking to step inside a fairytale for a week, you have come to the right spot.  These fairytale towns, cities, small villages and fairytale castles are some of the most breathtaking in the world.  It can sometimes be hard to believe that these fairytale places really exist.

One of my favorite fairytale vacations was when I went to Iceland on my honeymoon.  It was my first time out of the country (US) and it truly was a trip I will always remember.  I haven’t been to all these spots yet, but this fairytale bucket list hopefully still won’t disappoint. You will have to let me know what you would add to the list!

Fairytale Places that Really Exist

Let’s start with one of the best castles in Scotland!

 Dunbeath Castle, Scotland

Fairytale Places that Really Exist

A couple of kilometres from Dunbeath, this lonely, windswept castle perches on the east coast of Caithness, bleak, and blasted by punishing North Sea winds. The castle cannot be visited but the gardens can be seen during the annual open day.  Not to mention the views are pretty spectacular.

Mont Saint Michel, France

Aside from the top attractions in Paris, the Mont Saint Michel is the most visited tourist attraction in France.  The massive edifice sits on its own island, and not only includes an incredible abbey, but an entire city.

I can totally imagine a knight rescuing the damsel in distress from this castle.  It is one of my favorites.

St. Basil’s Cathedral (Moscow, Russia)

St. Basil’s Cathedral (Moscow, Russia)

Legend has it that Tsar Ivan IV blinded the architect after completion of this masterpiece, so the architect could never create something so beautiful again. Ouch, way to say thanks for the hard work.

Thank you so much for reading! What are some of your favorite fairy tale travel destinations?

  1. Great list! However I don’t think there’s a Billbury, England. Did you mean Bibury? That’s a lovely town in the Cotswolds and one we plan to visit next year

  2. Nice pictures. I will have to add Avenue of the Baobabs, Madagascar to my list. I have been to the rest and they are really fairy tale like. I agree Mont St. Michel and Pena Palace in Sintra are amazing. I would also add Rothenberg, Germany which was the inspiration for the town in Pinnochio.
    BTW….The picture of Prague is actually Cesky Krumluv, Czech Republic which is a charming town.
