Top Ten Coldest Countries

1 2

6. Iceland

The fact that the country’s name has ‘ice’ in it should give you an idea about how cold it is. The average temperature of the lower regions never goes above 0 degrees Celsius and that of the upper regions is almost always colder than minus 10 degrees Celsius. Iceland is also known as Lýðveldið Ísland.


7. Greenland

Isn’t it a bit ironic that Greenland is in this list? We would think that because it has the word “green” and “land”, the weather would be warm, and we would see a beautiful summer and spring weather outside, but actually, it is the other way around. While the average temperature can fall to minus 9 degrees, the highest will reach on 7 degrees, even during the ‘hottest’ months. The country is covered by a large ice sheet, which is why the sunlight cannot enter the atmosphere.


8. Mongolia

Mongolia is a country located in East and Central Asia, and is boarded by Russia. The capital of Mongolia, Ulan Baron, includes around 45% of Mongolia’s population. It is the largest city in the country. The average temperature in Mongolia is less than 0 degrees Celsius during the winter season and a little above freezing point from April to October. The first two months of the year are particularly cold and the temperature can go as low as minus 20 degrees. The water freezes up and the precipitation is biting.


9. Finland

Finland is a cold country, but not as cold as the countries listed above on the list. It is covered in snow for about 4 months during the winter season. The temperature can drop to minus 20 degrees but fortunately, the summer is quite tolerable. Lapland is the coldest region in the country mainly due to the bitingly harsh winds.


10. Estonia

Estonia is a relatively small state, with a population of about 1.4 Million. Compared to the rest of the countries on this list, Estonia isn’t all the freezing but it is definitely a little too cold for comfort. This is because the rainfall comes and goes as it pleases and can cause a massive drop in the temperature, no matter what part of the year it is.
