Have you got the winter blues? This dark cold weather does nothing to cheer people up after Christmas – that’s why we’ve put together a list of the world’s happiest destinations!

Iceland

With its breath taking landscape, thermal lagoons and the title of being the “Most Peaceful Nation on Earth”, there’s no wonder that Iceland is one of the world’s happiest destinations. Now, we know the weather may still be a bit chilly – especially in winter – but head to one of the many cool bars in Reykjavik to warm up and sip on a local beer.

Austria

Lush green mountains in summer and snow-capped peaks in winter, Austria is a country of beauty all year round. Skip with joy around Salzburg or waltz your way around Vienna, wherever you are in this spectacular country Austria is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Canada

The long life expectancy, high average income and a great social network are all reasons why Canada is considered one of the happiest countries on the planet! The gorgeous scenery, spectacular wildlife and abundance of maple syrup probably all contribute as well…

Norway

It may be another winter destination but with a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights, speeding through the snow on a husky sled and sailing through the fjords, it’s pretty much impossible not to be happy in Norway.
