Living in the happiest country in the world is nothing less than a dream-come-true and what if we tell you there is actually a list that tells us every year which one’s the happiest country across the globe? Exciting much? Well, the last year has been truly devastating for everyone due to the COVID-19 global health scare that resulted in the deaths of over 2.6 million people worldwide.

Despite the distressing events of the last 12 months and the resulting decline in mental health in a number of destinations, one country has successfully managed to grab the top spot in the world’s happiest countries list in 2021.

For the fourth year running, Finland has come out on top in the annual list powered by data from the Gallup World Poll. Iceland, Denmark, Switzerland, and the Netherlands followed in second, third, fourth and fifth rank respectively.
