6 Of the World’s Most Remote Travel Destinations

By Julia Austin, Planet Green

Many resorts and travel destinations can give you the feeling of isolation. The sounds of tropical birds pumping through speakers tucked into fake palm trees, a semi-remote location and staff members in grass skirts can almost give the impression that you’ve made a big track in search of serenity. Almost. However, for some adventurers the adrenaline rush/deep relaxation/sense of freedom or whatever it is they are looking for only sets in when they really worked to get to their vacation destination. And by “worked” I mean took some small, shaky, infrequently traveled form of transportation to one of these truly remote destinations. Here are some of the worlds most isolated locations for the diehard adventurer.

Cape York Peninsula, Australia

An expanse of untouched wilderness at the country’s northern tip, Cape York Peninsula is home to 18,000 people, most of whom are part of aboriginal tribes. Cape York Peninsula is one of the world’s largest undeveloped places and has become wildly popular amongst adventurers who are serious about going where no man (or almost no man) has never gone before. Visitors can drive jeeps or trucks but some overgrown regions are simply inaccessible and have only been seen by helicopters.

Nancy you are a member of the human race, like it or not.
Tibet is not China but then how many places on this planet have been stolen from the original inhabitants including much of the western world.
Reading about isolated spots will not make everyone pack up and suddenly go there so I would not worry about that, most of us cannot afford the trip but do like to read about fascinating spots-there are many of them around the world.

Easter time Isle is the most distant island on World, and there is actually reasonable to want to check out there, so amazed it did not create the record.
