The 7 Natural Wonders of the World are beautiful and amazing creations made by Mother Nature herself.

While man can make many glorious things, nothing can top the awe-inspiring designs that naturally occur on this Earth.

Everyone should strive to see as many of these gorgeous natural wonders as possible in their lifetimes.

1. Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis

Location: Northern Hemisphere

The Aurora Borealis is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous displays put on by the great outdoors.

If you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these elusive streams of color dancing through the sky then you are very special indeed.

The Northern Lights may occur frequently but the exact location and time varies enormously, making them hard to track down.

Keep your fingers crossed that one day you are in the right place at the right time and get to marvel at one of the most beautiful natural wonders.

2. Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon

Location: Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

The Grand Canyon was created when the Colorado River eroded the rock at least 17 million years ago.

As the river cut through the rock, it exposed billions of years of geologic history which you can now view yourself.

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and 18 miles wide with a spectacularly stunning view.

The best part about this natural wonder is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just viewing it!2

Rafting tours are available as well as hiking tours so you can actively experience the splendor that exists within the canyon itself.

3. Parícutin Volcano

Parícutin Volcano

Location: Michoacan, Mexico

The Paricutin Volcano is very rare because it, amazingly, began as a crack in a cornfield and shot up to well over 1,000 feet within one year!

The volcano erupted frequently for 8 years before becoming dormant, covering the nearby towns in lava and ash (no deaths were reported).

This volcano is a natural wonder because its birth, eruption and dormancy were all witnessed by mankind.

Like the Grand Canyon, you do not have to be content with simply looking at this natural wonder;

you can take a hike or horseback ride straight to the top!

Don’t worry, this volcano hasn't been active since 1952.
