The Coldest

Fairbanks, United States

View of Fairbanks, Alaska in winter.

Sitting just north of Denali National Park and Preserve, you will not find a better place to witness the gorgeous Northern Lights than the nippy Alaskan city of Fairbanks. If you plan to visit Fairbanks in January, expect average temperatures to be in the neighborhood of –7°F. For those hearty cold-weather fans, there are many things to do in the vast wilds of Alaska. In addition to the great light show in the sky, you can go dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and even frolic with reindeer.
