Transcontinental country

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A transcontinental country is a nation that is in more than one continent. [1] Examples:

Africa & Asia

Asia and Europe

Most of the other examples are contentious, based on the possession of small islands in another region. For example, Spain controlling the Canary Islands. A few are undoubtedly intercontinental:

Asia and Australasia

North America and Oceania

South America, Oceania and Antarctica

  • Chile, because of Easter Island and Antarctic Territory
