Without any human influence, nature has created extraordinary wondersfrom majestic mountains and bubbling volcanoes to amazing plants and animals. These wonders are found across all the continents and oceans of this planet. In a tour of the seven greatest wonders of Europe, we'll encounter Iceland, a land full of volcanoes. One of them erupted in 1963, creating a brand-new island. We'll also see Mons Klint, a giant white cliff in Denmark, and the Jurassic Coast of Britain with its 185 million years of Earth's history. Other European wonders are full of mystery: Does a monster really live in Scotland's Loch Ness? What other natural wonders does Europe hold? To find out, we'll explore snow-covered mountains, a dark forest, and magical fjords in fascinating detail..
