So the summer heat already has you acting all like you weren’t complaining all winter? It’s fine. No judgements. You aren’t alone. And then of course there are those who dreaded the melting of the snow all along. Sometimes we just need to cool off a little bit, or you know just be blatantly cold, either way, of course there are some perfect travel destinations just for that. Amazingly enough, across various continents and corners and cultures of the world there are a number of great places for travelers that have all-year temperatures ranging from cool to slightly more cool, or pretty cold to comfortably chilly.

These destinations provide a nice break from the seasonal heat (or even extreme cold) of your home, or a comfortably mild choice for a whole year abroad maybe. Check out these five travel destinations from around the world with year round cool climates.

Which of these cool climate travel destinations?

American by chance, but Roman by choice, Sarah is currently feeding her adventurous soul with expatriatism and pizza. Her finest moments are always on the wrong bus with a backpack and an upside down map, waiting to see what the world’s got for her next, so long as she can blog about it. She likes writing more than talking, dolphins more than humans, old movies more than new, and Rome more than anything else.
