The Top 7 always attempts to bring you the best lists of 7 from around the world.

Recently, we were planning something really BIG.  We thought about doing a worldwide poll to determine what were the Top 7 Wonders of the World.  We planned on starting a 7 year campaign lead by former UNESCO staff and architects to collect over 100,000,000 votes from the public on what we would name the New 7 Wonders of the World.

But, just before our big launch, we discovered that the World of New 7 Wonders did just that in 2007.   I encourage you to check out their list.

The N7W is currently finalizing their latest project.  This last weekend, the New 7 Wonders posted their provisional list of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Wow, what a list!  I must, however, point out the glaring omission of the Bay of Fundy in Newfoundland, Canada.  But, this list is not a list that was put together by Jeff or Kent, but a list generated by a world-wide poll.  Please remember, that the N7W advises that this list is provisional with the final results being announced in 2012.

It is a great honour to give you the New 7 Wonders’ list of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in alphabetical order.

1.  Amazon – The largest rainforest AND the largest river. 

2.  Halong Bay – This Vietnam paradise has islands that are hollow. 

3.  Iguaza Falls – These dazzelling waterfalls extend over 2,700 meters.

4.  Jeju Island – A stunning volcanic South Korean Island

5.  Komodo – Komodo National Park in Indonesia is a refuge for the Komodo Dragon.

6.  Puerto Princesa Underground River – You can float down this 8.2 km underground river in the Phillipines.

7.  Table Mountain – This African Mountain has a consellation of stars named after it (Mensa).

What do you think is the most amazing “wonder of nature?”

  1. Hi there. The Bay of Fundy is between Nova Scotia & New Brunswick. It does not border on Newfoundland. And the Bay of Fundy is a current shortlisted location in the 7 Wonders contest. thanks.

      Thanks for pointing out my shameful error about the location of the Bay of Fundy. This new information will be very useful for my planned future visit to the site.

    Theswe Wonders of Nature are all created by our loving God. He also gave us the ability to appreciate His wonderful creation. These did NOT happen by “accidental” evolution, but were created for the ‘recreation’ of mankind
