Norway has moved up four places to knock Denmark off the top spot as the world’s happiest country, with Iceland and Switzerland rounding out the top four.

According to the World Happiness Report 2017, Norway ranked highly on the main factors found to contribute to happiness: “caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance”.

If you live in Norway we want to hear why you think it was voted happiest in the world. Is it the beautiful scenery of places like the Reine or Geiranger? Or perhaps it’s the education or the low crime rates?
