7 Natural Wonders of the World

February 9, 2022

The Earth offers spectacular natural wonders that only a small percentage of people will ever see in their lifetime. These 7 natural wonders of the world include the Northern Lights, the Grand Canyon, Paricutin, Mount Everest, Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, Victoria Falls, and the Great Barrier Reef.

1. The Northern Lights: Aurora Borealis.

The Northern Lights have become a sensation for tourists traveling in the Northern Hemisphere. The Northern Lights are auroras, or naturally occurring phenomena that consist of mystifying displays of light in the sky. The northern lights dance across the sky and emanate a diffused glow along the northern horizon.

The intensity of northern lights increases as you head north towards the magnetic pole in the Arctic. Unfortunately, the northern lights appear only randomly, making it a challenge for travelers to see while on a short trip.

2. The Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon’s massive and colorful landscape provides breathtaking views that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

Most visitors head to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and spend a full day admiring the views from the overlooks that stretch along the top of the canyon.

3. Paricutin.

Even avid travelers may not know about Paricutin, mainly because this natural wonder resides in Michoacán, Mexico. This cinder cone volcano was named one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, even over famous volcanoes, such as Yellowstone.

Paricutin last erupted in 1952. It was coined one of the natural wonders of the world because mankind witnessed its birth and rapidly growing formation.

4. Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls is located in Africa along the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This spectacular waterfall runs off from the Zambezi River.

Visitors can access the falls from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Livingston in Zambia. Cross the border to gain different perspectives of this magnificent natural wonder.

5. Mount Everest.

Mount Everest has an approximate elevation of 29,029 feet. Mountaineers consider this mountain the highest spot on Earth; however, it is not the tallest mountain in the world, a title that belongs to Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Everest lies within the Himalayan mountain range on the border of Nepal and Tibet, China.

6. Great Barrier Reef.

As the world’s largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef includes over nine hundred islands, roughly three thousand separate reefs, and sustains a diverse ecosystem. Boat trips offer visitors a chance to see the reef up close. Snorkeling or dive trips can be arranged and provide opportunities to see colorful fish, coral, and marine life. Tours can be day trips or multi-day excursions.

7. Harbor of Rio de Janeiro.

The Harbor of Rio de Janeiro is surrounded by granite mountains and pinnacles, including Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corcovada Peak, and the Tijuca hills. It was created by erosion caused by the Atlantic Ocean. Tourists can explore the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro on a helicopter flight to capture a breathtaking aerial view.

Other Wonders of the World

A number of compiled lists exist from classical antiquity to the present day that catalog the world’s most amazing wonders, including man-made structures. For instance, the 7 wonders of the ancient world was based on guidebooks illustrated by popular Hellenic sightseers. Some of these ancient ruins include the Great Pyramid of Giza, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Colossus of Rhodes, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
