5. Snag (Yukon, Canada)

Located on a small side-road off the Alaska Highway, some 25 km south of Beaver Creek, Snag is a village with some pretty chilly and freezing weather. The coldest month in Snag is January with the lowest temperature recorded being -81.4 °F.

4. North Ice (Greenland)

North Ice was once a research station of the British North Greenland Expedition and it is the 4th coldest place on Earth. The lowest temperature recorded here was -86.8 °F.

3. Verkhoyansk (Russia)

Verkhoyansk is not only famous for being one of the coldest places across the globe, this freezing destination has seen some of the greatest temperature differences between summer and winter ever recorded.

Verkhoyansk’s lowest temperature recorded was in February 1892 when the mercury in the thermometer descended as low as −93.6 °F.

2. Oymyakon (Russia)

Oymyakon is another Russian place with an extreme subarctic climate as the ground there is permanently frozen.

Back in 1924, Russian scientist Sergey Obrychev recorded the lowest temperature in this cold place. The temperature reached −96.2 °F, which is actually the lowest recorded temperature for any permanently inhabited location on Earth.

1. Vostok (Antartica)

Unlike Oymyakon, which is a permanently inhabited destination, Vostok Station is a Russian Antarctic research station, but this place should definitely be considered to be “The Southern Pole of Cold.”

The coldest month in Vostok is actually August and the lowest reliably measured natural temperatures there go as low as −128.6 °F. Crazy indeed!
