Looking for somewhere exciting to go for your next vacation? We’ve found some of the most interesting webcams from around the world to give you a sneak peek into some of the greatest sights around the world.

From watching brown bears fishing and frolicking in Brooks Falls to viewing the incredible coral reef of Bonaire, these travel webcams are bound to have you reaching for your passport.


Brooks Falls Brown Bears

As winter hibernation ends, brown bears begin flocking to Brooks River in Alaska’s Katmai National Park in America – where there is a reliable source of salmon – to start bulking up for winter hibernation. At Brooks River, the bears compete for spots to get all the best salmon while also teaching young cubs how to survive in the wild.

Location: Brooks Falls in Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve.

When to visit: July is the best time to watch bears fishing at Brooks Falls. However, bears are in the area from mid spring until mid fall and a few bears may fish at Brooks Falls in September and October.

Going to see it in person: Most people who visit Brooks Camp, where the Brooks Falls are situated, fly from Anchorage to King Salmon on a commercial airline (Alaska Airlines or PenAir) and fly from King Salmon to Brooks Camp on KatmaiAir.


Aurora Borealis – Northern Lights

Churchill is one of the best places on earth to view the spectacular atmospheric phenomenon of the aurora borealis – or Northern Lights. Known as the 'Polar Bear Capital of the World,' Churchill also offers visitors the opportunity to spot majestic predators and beluga whales.

Location: Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.

When to visit: Late winter and early spring are the best times for the Aurora, so the best time to visit is during the months of February and March.

Going to see it in person: There is no easy way to get to Churchill since it is so incredibly remote, and there are no roads into Churchill, so the primary transportation is via air or rail. To get there, you’ll need to fly into Toronto and take a connecting flight.


Happiness Village Garden

The Shenshuping Gengda Panda Center is an open, spacious, world-class panda research centre that integrates feeding, breeding, researching, field training, releasing-into-wild research, and high-end scientific observation of pandas. At the so-called Happiness Village Garden, visitors can watch the adorable baby and toddler pandas play, nap, eat, and grow.

Location: Gengda, Sichuan, China

When to visit: Baby pandas are born between August and September following a spring mating season, making October and November great times to visit.

Going to see it in person: To get there, you’ll need to fly into Chengdu city and then drive another two hours to get to the Shenshuping Gengda Panda Center.


African Animals - Watering Hole

The Mpala Research Centre in the highlands of central Kenya is a 48,000-acre mix of cattle ranches and wild lands, making it a “living laboratory,” where scientists and researchers come from all over the world to study Africa's iconic wildlife. At the resident watering hole, visitors can watch elephants, hippos, giraffes, zebras, gazelles, crocodiles, leopards, and many other species take a drink (or a quick dip).

Location: Laikipia County, Kenya

When to visit: The best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the Dry season from late June to October.

Going to see it in person: To get there, you will need to fly into Nairobi and take a connecting flight to Nanyuki. The Mpala Research Centre is a 42km (26mi) drive away.


Bonaire Underwater Coral

The coast of the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire is home to one of the healthiest remaining coral reef systems in the Americas – and an innovative coral restoration project. Although it’s the second largest of the "A-B-C" islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao), it’s the least populated, creating an island oasis that never feels crowded.

Location: Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands

When to visit: Thanks to its location outside the hurricane belt, the island enjoys beautiful weather year-round.

Going to see it in person: To get there, you will need to fly via Amsterdam where you’ll be able to fly directly into Bonaire.
