Monotous..check places like Chile...It has glaciers, volcanos, mountains, extreme temperatures...way more beautiful than anything Iceland has to offer.
Overall , taking into consideration cities and landscape it is hard to beat Italy

Geographically:

USA (Tons of different landscapes, though way too flat in the middle)

MExico (From deserts to the north, jungles to the south, beautiful beaches)

Colombia (the third most biodiverse nation on the planet according to biologists, from snow caped mountains, deserts, jungles, savannahs, there is even tundra in Colombia)

Peru (the andes are a marvel to behold)

Argentina (Andes, Savanahas, patagonia, desert)

Chile (deserts, mountains, glaciers, remote islands)

South Africa (Impressive landscapes, very cool interesting looking features)

Namibia (sand dunes the size of buildings)

Iceland (Weird volcanic moon looking island)

China (Just about every landscape you can imagine)

Indonesia (islands with all sorts of mountains, jungles, volcanoes, you name it)

Congo (jungles, Sahel, mountains, impressive landscape)

Russia (neverending deserts, taiga, tundra, lake regions, frozen arctic landscapes)

OVERRATED COUNTRIES THAT ARE NOT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DESPITE BEING PUT HERE AS BREATHTAKING
France (France is flat like a pancake with the excepcion of the Alpine region, which is just the extreme south west of the country, the rest of the country is a predominantly pretty mundane looking flatland)

Italy (it's got picturesque things, but it's NOT geographically that impressive, yeah some rolling hills, beaches etc. but it's nothing to crap your pants about especially if you've seen the andes, or the namibian desert or the jungles of Asia)

Australia (it's huge, it's got weird animals, and the outback is remarkably dusty and red looking.... Despite its size however, Australia doesnt offer a wow factor, vastly semi-arid, with some green around Queensland, and some mediocre sized mountains around New South Wales. Australia is big and cool in the animal factor, but geographically is pretty meh)

Canada (nice impressive mountains you can find also in the US, and even much more impressive if you keep going south towards south america, the rest is flat like a pancake and then lakes and tundra)

Germany (flat, the south is alpine but once again dont except to be wowed)

Brazl (it might have the amazon jungle, "so do almost all of its neigbors and much well preserved than in Brazil", the rest of Brazil is massively mundane looking from a geographic point of view. Towards flat or hilly it's nothing to write home about)

Suprised you don't quote Spain.
France and Italy are very compact and a good equilibrium of history, "beauty" (well, that's a personal POV) and easy access in Europe, with good food if you like it. That's the strength. And most tourists in Europe are...European, so wait 30 years and nature in Asia will be more invaded in number by asians than the trio of european tourist traps, because it's more impressive and asians will travel in Asia like Europeans in Europe.

Ofc a Nanga Parbat or K2 is worth the entire Alps moutain range, but the access is an adventure itself and in Pakistan so not very safe. While you take your jeep and mule for 1 week to see it from your eyes, I would do London, Paris, Chamonix, Roma at the same time.

I climbed the Kilimanjaro and its prettier by light years than the Barre des Ecrins I climbed too. But damn, you don't find Lyon, Geneva or whatever the place 4 hours away from Kili.

Here a picture of the killer mountain, the biggest amount of rocks that Earth has:

BTW, half of France is crossed by Pyrenees, Massif Central, Jura, Alps and there's also Corsica. Massif Central is modest, but with 1885m at the top, it's not pancake like.

I have never been in Chile, but I was in Iceland. I am convinced that breathtaking natural beauty and unique landscapes of Iceland and its citizens were my the most outstanding experience.
