Do you enjoy the yearly drop in temperature? well this is the norm in coldest country in the world
If you prefer skiing down a mountain rather than lounging on the beach, you should consider vacationing in a place that remains cold all day, every day?
Fortunately, numerous destinations meet this criterion.
Indeed, some of them might be a bit too chilly…
The coldest countries in the world are located across the globe but have similar geographical features.
They include landlocked or island nations, Nordic countries, and those close to a pole or the Arctic Circle.
Here are the world’s coldest countries, ranked by their annual mean temperatures.
|Rank||Country||Average Yearly Temperature (°C)||Average Yearly Temperature (°F)|
1. Canada – 22.37°F
Canada has a low population density, with just four people per square kilometer.
This vast country showcases a wide range of climates, especially in its northern two-thirds, where incredibly cold conditions persist throughout the year.
Across the nation, winters are characterized by cold temperatures and snowfall.
Historically, January stands out as the coldest month, but recent years have seen February becoming more formidable.
Temperatures exhibit significant variations among different regions.
Inland areas endure severe winters, with temperatures lingering at 5°F or lower for weeks, occasionally plummeting to -40°F, usually following heavy snowfalls.
The northern and eastern parts of the country face even harsher and longer winters, lasting for five months.
The lowest temperature ever recorded in Canada was -63.0 °C (-81.4 °F) in Snag, Yukon Territory, back in 1947. Due to these bone-chilling temperatures, some hotels have installed heated doors.
2. Russia – 22.82°F
A big, landlocked transcontinental country stretches from Eastern Europe to the farthest eastern point of mainland Asia.
Because a significant portion of the land is far from the sea, the country experiences a continental climate.
Russia, for the most part, has mild summers which mostly lasts for two months and extremely long, cold, snowy, and frosty winters.
Summer temperatures hover around 37°F, while an average January day registers at 18°F, often plummeting to -40°F during harsh winters.
The majority of northern-European Russia and Siberia, located between the Scandinavian Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean, boasts a subarctic climate.
In the remote interior of northeastern Siberia, temperatures reached a historic low of -89.86 °F on February 6, 1933, in Oymyakon.
Despite experiencing just two months of summer and enduring months without sunlight in many areas, Russia, at least, gets to enjoy the “White Nights” in St. Petersburg.
