Hi everybody!

I am planning a trip with my friend and I need some help. I'm not exactly sure where.
I currently live in Sweden, but I can def think aout traveling far away from here.
I want to go somewhere that kind of take my vision on nature to another level, I'm not looking for a place to sit in a hotel with a swimming pool in front of me 24/7, I want to go somewhere that isn't very crowded with tourists, somewhere i could take endless walks and witness breathtaking views. It could me mountains, rivrers, you name it.
Do you have any recomendations?

Have a gd day :)

New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, the English Lake District, all are good hiking country.

And while everywhere scenic gets some tourists, all of these are large enough to easily get away from crowds.

I don't have experience with the Lake District, but otherwise can only echo what Andy said. Beyond that, I'd add the Canadian Rockies and Vancouver Island to that list, and above all the Andes - specifically recommending El Chaltén in Argentina as a base of operations for endless amazing hiking.

I was thinking western Canada also. For some reason when I think 'hiking' I think of places that aren't hot, but if you didn't mind some hot weather, perhaps the west coast of Barbados

My two favorite get-away-to-Nature places are the Pyrenees Mountains in southwest France and the Sierra Nevada Mountains in northeastern California, USA. Both are full of breathtaking views, mountains, rivers, wildlife . . . but you'll get better food in the Pyrenees.

Whatever you choose, have a great trip.

You can have a visit to Kerala,India. A few information about Kerala

Kerala enjoys unique geographical features with the Arabian Sea in the west, the Western Ghats towering 500-2700 m in the east and networked by forty-four rivers, 34 lakes, canals, ponds, paddy fields that have made it one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. An equable climate, a long shoreline with serene beaches, tranquil streches of emerald backwaters, lush hill stations and exotic wildlife, waterfalls, sprawling plantations and paddy fields, ayurvedic health holidays enchanting art forms, magical festivals, historic and cultural monuments, exotic cuisine, all of which makes Kerala a unique experience.

Since you are from Sweden, I am not recommending somewhere similar in Sweden. What about Asia country? It's crowded enough, has different unique culture.

Take a safari in Tanzania .. checks all your criteria except the walking part, you don't get to walk with the animals too much, but it is a fantastic to see animals in the wild, not in tiny cages. The Serengeti & Ngorongoro crater are awash with wildlife intermingling & interacting. There is certainly enough there to 'take your vision on nature to another level,'
I went from lodge to lodge but I think it is GAP travel that has much cheaper options where you would be in a tent.

Hubby and I have been to some places with amazing views.
Jasper and the rocky mountains to Banff.
Slept under stars in Sahara Marocco and met and had tea with berber nomads in their cave and rode camels out of the desert.
Smokey mountains in the fall along with a fantastic cabin stay in Ocoee and white water rafting near Asheville.
Hubby did fly fishing near Vancouver. Magnificent views along the fraser river.
Staying in the Belize Jungle with the howler monkeys was awesome and visiting the Mayan ruins.
Australia has a lot of diverse stunning scenery.
Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Savannah Way from Cairns to Broome, Katherine Gorges, Cairns has lots to do around and in the surrounding mountains, Daintree, Cape Tribulation, Cooktown, Whitsunday Islands for diving or learn to dive, Noosa Sunshine Coast hinterland , Glass House Mountains, Malaney, gold coast hinterland, mount warning hike, Nimbin, Byron Bay whale watching, coast road down to Sydney has many deserted beaches with nat ural beauty to explore and photograph, HunterValley wineries, Blue Mountains, Melbourne, hanging rock, great coast road, Adelaide hills and Handorf and Clair Valley and Barossa wineries, Stirling ranges and wilpena pound including roads of rich red soil. The big rock in the centre. The long nullarbour road across to Perth with interesting ever changing scenery including The Great Bight. Bottom end of western australia Experience, stunning twighlight beach and Cape la Grande, outback southern wa is not to be missed. Wildflower season is amazing. Albany, Denmark, Pemberton, Walpole all have their own great drawcards. Margaret river wineries. Then northern outback from Perth including Pinnacles.
