But it's likely that she did notice the inherent serenity of the place, a hidden retreat bordered by the magnificent Wairakei Park Reserve. Huka's 17 acres are dominated by the Waikato River, a...

When word spread that Papoose Creek Lodge in southwestern Montana was shutting down in late 2007, the eco-lodging community gasped that the first of the country's luxury green resorts was closing its doors.

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

The enormous Atacama Desert, which stretches 600 miles from northern Chile to the southern border of Peru, is flanked by the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains. Its Martian terrain, at an average elevation of 10,000 feet, is the highest and driest desert on earth; too arid in some spots for even microbes to grow. But it endures as one of the most starkly beautiful places on Earth, where the...
