The World Natural Heritage Sites experience is an ambitious and unrealistic project of a person with a true passion for the natural environment, traveling, and photography.
The project's goal is to visit all the Natural and Mixed sites included in the World Heritage List, and share the experience through this website. As I believe that images and videos are fundamental when trying to communicate the actual natural beauty of a site, I will publish as many as I can.
I hope you will find the WNHS eXperience project enjoyable and inspiring.

Latest Published Experiences

Find below the 3 World Natural Heritage Sites I visited during my recent travel through Switzerland.
At the moment only a sort of empty skeleton page has been published for each experience. I hope I will soon be able to populate these pages with all the interesting information collected during the visits. In the meantime, feel free to click the links underneath the pictures to check out some of the already published photos.
