It's a possibility that summer '18 could go down as one of the hottest to date, given the recent weather. Heat waves throughout the UK have been prompting some of the highest temperatures of all time, that are causing flights to be grounded, and much higher electrical outages. A scorching summer sun does not always solicit days bathing on the beach or trekking around new cities. Fortunately, there's various chilly locations wherein you can defeat the burn. Here are a few of the best.
When it comes to the ideal summer destination, the larger western neighbour of Iceland might put them to shame. Not only are you given the nature-love benefits of mountains and glaciers, but you get the extra bonus of a sun at midnight and less people. They even offer tours like the "Iceberg Boatride Evening", which brings light to the unique beauty of the midnight sun's glimmer on the icebergs and fjords.
As an alternative to sunbathing, more and more people that travel are pursuing glacial exploration, instead of sunbathing, suggested the Alaska Tourism Industry, of whom reported that the year 2016 saw a record number of visitors in the summer.
If you don't want to, there's no need to pack away all of your ski gear! Since this ski resort in California frequently experiences masses of snowfall that often lasts for months past winter, the resort stays open throughout the summer. That's right, whilst wearing basically a vest (though we do not endorse this!) you can take on some icy slopes, whilst also experiencing the freezing lakes, 3,500 trail acres and feast on burrito's on mountain tops, like any authentic Californian!
