National Geographic Travel Photos

Every year, National Geographic collects the best travel photos from around the world. More than a thousand photographers have already submitted their favorite images, and altogether they make for a stunning glimpse into far off-worlds.

HuffPost World selected some of its favorite images in the slideshow below.

The winning photo will be published in National Geographic Traveler Magazine, and its lucky photographer will receive a 10-day National Geographic Expedition to the Galápagos.

You can still participate, too, by submitting your photo here.
