Well-funded national parks are well-maintained and cared for recreational parks open to the public and to tourists. These five rarely-known national parks offer nature lovers and campers a refreshing look into nature. 

Slovenia is a country with amazing mountain peaks and is a beautiful destination for most nature lovers. World of Wanderlust suggests heading to its only national park of Triglav, which offers kayaking and rafting. However, the best part is seeing the beautiful river flowing from lakes, ravines and waterfalls. Endless hikes and climbs abound the park's 3,000-meter peaks.

Spain's Ordesa National Park is a hiker's dream with mountain trails marked effectively for hikers. The park has various amazing sites including spectacular caves and observation points where travelers can enjoy the view using a pair of binoculars. The park authorities offer an eight-hour hike as part of its standard tour. package.

According to The Telegraph UK, Austria's Hohe Tauern National Park is said to be the biggest national park in the world. Summer is a great time to see this national park and enjoy climbing, hiking and bicycling. The winter season, however, introduces heavy snow but still features amazing views.

Montenegro's Durmitor National Park offers everything nature lovers want -- from glacial lakes to mossy, thick forests. Lake gazing is the best thing to enjoy for climbers, campers and hikers while taking a break. The 18 glacial lakes around the national park are always a welcome, breathtaking site.

Ireland's Killarney National Park is reminiscent of "Game of Thrones" or "Lord of The Rings" because of its amazing wilderness during the spring and summer seasons. Kayaking in the afternoon brings out the best views, especially down the lakes where the sun and sky reflect amazingly.
