The result: Lucie Ševečková from Whistler, BC won for her photo taken in Tongariro, a national park in New Zealand's North Island. We loved how the travelers in Lucie's photo strike a playful pose in front of a dramatic backdrop including snowy volcanic peaks and a turquoise crater lake.
Lucie has won $500 to spend on any ToursByLocals tour(s). With local guides in 127 countries around the world, she has a lot of choice! We asked Lucie whether she has any idea where she might book her first tour, and this is what she replied: "We are planning some big travel next year for two and a half months. On this trip we will visit Peru, the USA National Parks, Alaska and the Rockies. I would like to use our voucher for a guide in Peru."
Great choice! We have a multitude of wonderful guides in that part of the world, offering travelers access to the food, drink, art and history of Peru's different regional cultures.
Coincidentally, Lucy's travel companion to Peru will be her boyfriend Honza, whom she met while on the trip to New Zealand, where the winning photograph was taken.
Some of our other favourite contest entries showed travelers enjoying themselves in Cape Town, Chile, Ireland, Las Vegas, Paris, Machu Picchu and the German Alps. If you click on the winning photo above you'll also be able to scroll through the runner-ups.
Congratulations to Lucie, and all our other talented photographers and fun-loving travelers who clearly know how to have a good time on holiday!
