Old Baldy Mountain (Shawnigan Lake, Canada)

You’ll notice a pattern here: a lot of the swings are difficult to find. They are hidden jewels that require hours of physical activity, but why not reward hikers for their dedication? In this particular case, we’re talking about the swing that overlooks Shawnigan Lake, a village on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The views are insane with or without that swing, but it sure does enhance the experience!

Hjørundfjorden Swing (Trandal, Norway)

Most people who visit Norway do so because they want to get a good look at the country’s famous fjords, not to mention those glaciers. But the best way to enjoy these breathtaking natural formations is by hopping on the Hjørundfjorden swing. It isn’t the easiest place to find; you either have to take a ferry or go on a mountain hike to reach the quaint Norwegian village of Trandal. But as soon as you get on that swing while feasting your eyes on the magnificent Sunnmøre alps, you’ll agree that it was definitely worth the trek.
