A spectacular challenge across more than 7 countries and 3 continents for only the most avid travellers!
The New7Wonders of Nature was an initiative started in 2007 to create a list of seven natural wonders chosen by people through a global poll. It was led by Swiss-born Canadian Bernard Weber and organized by the New 7 Wonders Foundation, a Swiss-based foundation which Weber founded. The initiative followed an earlier New7Wonders of the World campaign, and attracted 100 million votes from around the world. The final 7 were chosen from a list of 28 “Official Finalist Candidates”.
