Nature has an incredible way of making us feel like we’re living in a fairy tale. Whether it’s cloaking the landscape in a blanket of fog or wowing us with a rainbow of colors, one thing is clear: the Earth is a magical place. And what better way to make believe that you’re living in a story book than with picturesque nature tunnels? These unique passageways feature a bevy of flowers and tall trees that curve inward and surround your path with beautiful blooms, glistening green leaves, and knotty branches that seemingly have a mind of their own.
These spectacular nature tunnels exist all around the world. In the Kawachi Fuji Garden in Japan, you’ll find the astonishing beauty of a wisteria tree as it lines a path in brilliant blues, magenta, and yellows. Travel across the globe, however, and you’ll see a much different type of passageway in Charleston, South Carolina. This one is made of live oak branches that bend over and onto the ground to create a grand arch. Relatively spare in their vegetation, the network of limbs conjures an eerie feeling—like we’ve reached the suspenseful part of a fascinating novel.
