Nature offers truly breathtaking landscapes. Waterfalls, forests, woods, lakes, rivers, beaches, cliffs, and much more. Wonders that have an almost magical charm in winter. Unfortunately, due to climate change, some of these shows are in jeopardy. That’s why we take you on a journey to discover the most beautiful ice kingdoms in the world – hoping that soon the situation will change.
Ojmjakon, the coldest city in the world
Frozen paradise also Ojmjakon, the coldest city in the world was awarded the gold medal for its incredible record of well -69.9°C reached on January 26, 1926. A reality located in Siberia.
Harbin, ice and snow sculptures
Harbin, China, can boast the title of a real ice city, where the largest ice and snow sculpture festival in the world takes place in the months from December to February.
Vatnajökull and the ice caves
Iceland is a land of ice and fire par excellence, here there are many frozen wonders to admire but we have chosen the Ice Cave of Vatnajökull, where the Crystal Cave develops which looks like a real crystal dome.
Multnomah Falls, frozen majesty.
Multnomah is breathtaking 190-meter water flows in Oregon.
In winter they can be admired in all their frozen majesty. But you have to pay close attention: these conditions are created only once or twice a year.
Lake Baikal, which is unmatched
In Southern Siberia, there is one lake that has no equal: Lake Baikal.
Unesco’s heritage since 1996, is estimated to be between 20 and 25 million years old. It is famous for its giant ice blocks, called “hummocks” which can reach up to 15 meters.
Balmaceda, suspended glacier
We then fly to Chile to discover the mystical Balmaceda, a suspended glacier of over 2030 meters.
Unfortunately, due to global warming, the glacier is receding and may one day disappear altogether.
Argentière, impressive and powerful
The Argentière is also a frozen paradise located on the French side of the Mont Blanc massif.
Here large walls of rock and ice draw a thousand shapes in contrast with the blue of the sky up to “Shiva Lingam” which, impressive and powerful, marks the beginning of the ice falls.
Abraham Lake, with “trapped” bubbles
A basin created artificially in 1972 presents this strange natural phenomenon where, under the thick layer of ice, large bubbles of different shapes and sizes are formed.
Nærøyfjord, the narrowest in the world
Finally, we take you to discover Nærøyfjord, a fascinating Norwegian fjord 18 kilometers long. Its unique beauty made it possible for it to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005.
In addition to being the narrowest fjord in the world, it is home to beautiful waterfalls. Just imagine what it might be like to visit it in winter.
