Countries With the Most Lakes
There are approximately 117 million lakes in the world — that's about four percent of land surface covered by these large bodies of water. However, there is a bit of ambiguity over what constitutes a lake; National Geographic defines it as a large body of water surrounded by land, but doesn't specify how large it needs to be. While this lack of official data makes it difficult to definitively rank the countries with the most lakes, there are some places that are considered to have a comparatively large number of lakes. If you want to vacation somewhere where you're sure to come across a surplus of stunning vacation spots, here are seven of the countries with the most lakes in the world.
