Every year the World Happiness Report is produced by an independent group.2

Although not affiliated to any specific organization (say like the United Nations), it is used by many countries and global agencies.

Happiness is seen to be a goal of public policy and therefore a measure of social progress.

So after all the factors are assessed and the calculations made, which are the 10 Happiest Countries in the World this year?

1. Norway

reflection, sunset, evening, cityscape, river,

Fjords, waterfalls, hundreds of islands, reindeer, Santa's home in Lapland, glaciers and wonderful national parks make Norway one of the most beautiful European vacation destinations.

Go skiing in winter and you might even get to see the Aurora Borealis.

2. Denmark

landmark, canal, waterway, urban area, architecture,

Given its beer prices, Denmark is rather a surprise entry in the list of the 10 Happiest Countries in the World.

However, it’s hard to argue with the phenomena that is Hygge - the lifestyle concept that is admired and lusted after the world over.

If we all embraced Hygge, we’d all be as happy as the Danes.

3. Iceland

nature, season, reflection, autumn,

Iceland has rapidly joined the ranks of the best European destination for an unforgettable vacation.

.With more flights scheduling into Reykjavik becoming available every year, why not head to Iceland for a spot of whale-watching, geyser spotting and bathing in hot natural springs

?It's a stunningly beautiful country and you might even get to see a volcano in action.

4. Switzerland

town, tourism, flower, cityscape,

What's not to like about Switzerland?

It's got yummy chocolate, stunning natural beauty, Alpine lakes and hundreds of miles of hiking trails, snow-capped peaks and chic ski resorts.

Why are you still surprised that Switzerland is one of the happiest countries in the world?2
