THE REMOTEST PLACES
Added on: 13th May 2015
TRISTAN DA CUNHA, SOUTH ATLANTIC OCEAN
Considered to be the most physically remote place in the world, you’ll
only have a couple hundred neighbours on this South Atlantic island.
KERGUELEN ISLANDS, SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN
Also known as the “desolation islands” due to their remoteness.
The only things you’ll find here are scientists and rogue cats that
were long abandoned by seafarers.
Although it lies on the coast, the seas around this small village are
frozen for most of the year so you have a very narrow window of
opportunity to visit.
Probably one of the more famous isolated islands, the
only way to get here is to catch a flight out of Chile.
SONG KUL, KYRGYZSTAN
At an altitude of 3 thousand metres the only way to visit this high
alpine lake will be with the help of some local herders.
Erik the Red’s former home.
Less than 100 people live in this remote village.
This enormous country only has a couple of million inhabitants.
Chances are you won’t run into too many people out here.
In spite of its inhospitable climate, this place is home to the
Global Seed Vault, an underground store of the planet’s seeds kept
safe in case of an apocalyptic event.
