Throughout history, there has been much debate and contemplation over which beautiful and majestic landmarks should be included on the list of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. There has also not been a general consensus on how long the list of the world’s natural wonders should be, either. However, despite the debate and controversy there are a few natural wonders the continually make the list.
The Great Barrier Reef is located off in Queensland in northeast Australia and has continuously made itself on the list of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and for appropriate reasons. Not only is the Great Barrier Reef made up of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands, but it can also be seen from outer space. The Great Barrier Reef also supports one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world.
The Grand Canyon, United States
Located in northern Arizona, the United States is proud to call itself the home of the Grand Canyon, another of the world’s seven natural wonders. Spectacularly carved by the majestic Colorado River, the Grand Canyon runs 277 miles long and is anywhere from 4 to 18 miles wide, depending on the location within the canyon. The Grand Canyon is not the steepest or longest canyon in the world, but its scale, size, and beautifully colored landscape is why it is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Grand Canyon is a major tourist attraction in the United States, and guided tours are offered daily to see the massive gorge. GC Flight is one of the top providers in discount Grand Canyon bus tours as well as airplane, helicopter, and rafting tours.
Victoria Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Victoria Falls is one of the largest waterfalls based on its width and height and is located in southern Africa on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The fall’s water source is the Zambezi River, and Victoria Falls is known as one the “largest sheet of falling water” in the world. No matter which perspective Victoria Falls is viewed from, critics and tourists agree that it is truly a natural beauty.
The additional four of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World include the Northern Lights, Paricutin, Mount Everest, and the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro.
