According to Rough Guides, Canada ranked in the top three behind New Zealand in first and Italy in second.

“Epic landscapes and the vastness of its wide-open spaces,” were one of the reasons listed for Canada’s ranking.

Another aspect to Canada being one of the world’s most beautiful countries are the B.C. mountains, where skiers and snowboarders gather in the thousands and the East Coast cities of Toronto and Montreal that “charm with their world-class restaurants and cosmopolitan vibe.”

Canada’s Bay of Fundy, hailed as one of the most remarkable spots as well.

Just for fun, if you were wondering what the reasoning is for New Zealand’s number one ranking, “amazing scenery had big impact. The same goes for the diversity of landscapes in New Zealand, especially the contrast in scenery between the mountains and beaches.”

Well, as far as the most beautiful countries in the world go you’re top spot in our eyes, Canada.
