Better than the Patagonia for me is the Bolivian plateau, the landscapes are absolutely mind-boggling.

However I voted for all continents because they are ALL beautiful. The WHOLE world is beautiful. But I'm still shocked that Antarctica is doing better than Australia/Oceania, something isn't right there. Is it because few people have been there? I feel that for most people, this region of the world is very hard to get to! But there's nothing like a virtual vacation (Google images) to justify it!

Very nice but Greenland is North America at a push. It actually is more connected to Denmark and Norway politically and pretty close to Iceland. Although the Arctic isn't a continent, personally Greenland would embody the Arctic for me rather than North America but please do continue.

Nice, but so far it really is quite "one trick pony".

As much as I think Canada is beautiful, and as much as I love polar bears, I don't think they qualify for this specific thread.

You seem to prefer arctic/tundra/super cold landscapes Iaskwhy. I do too so I don't blame you, but South America's lack thereof of this climate in QUANTITY doesn't mean South America is any less beautiful. South America wins on having tropical areas that really don't exist in North America albeit a few areas (Panama and such). So think of the two Americas as reverse, one having more cold, the other having more warm.
