8. TRISTAN DA CUNHA
Tristan Da Cunha is the world’s most remote inhabited island. Located in the Atlantic Ocean 1,750 miles (2810 km) from Cape Town, it’s the main island of an otherwise uninhabited archipelago of volcanoes. Tristan is a small island, with a circumference of just 25 miles (40 km) and an average diameter of 7.5 miles (12 km).
The rural Siberian town of Oymyakon is considered the coldest permanently inhabited place on Earth. It’s just a few hundred miles away from the Arctic Circle and its 500 residents experience days as short as three hours in the winter and lasting up to 21 hours during the summer. Summer ok, but just 3 hours in winter? That's just not enough!!
6. PITCAIRN ISLAND
Located in French Polynesia, Pitcairn Island is a self-governing British Overseas Territory. It’s one of four volcanic islands that make up the Pitcairn archipelago, the other three of which are uninhabited. With just 50 residents, Pitcairn Island is considered the world’s least populous national jurisdiction. Its population peaked at 233 in 1937, but most people left the island for Australia and New Zealand.
5. LA RINCONADA
In the mountainous Peruvian province of Puno, nearly three miles above sea level, sits La Rinconada, the highest town on Earth. It’s also one of the harshest, with no indoor plumbing or sewage system, no roads, very little electricity, and nearly 70 percent of its 30,000 residents living below the poverty line. A quality education is nearly impossible to obtain here, like it is for many indigenous children in Peru, 29 percent of whom don’t attend school.
4. SIWA OASIS
As you’ve seen so far, isolation can be a preference among those who prefer peace and quiet, and it can also have detrimental effects on a population in the form of poverty and a scarcity of resources. The historic Egyptian town of Siwa, located in the country’s Western Desert, has isolation to thank, in large part, for the preservation of its local culture and language.
3. DESOLATION ISLANDS
The name says it all! Well, it’s actually a nickname. The proper title of this archipelago is the Kerguelen Islands, and they’re located 2,000 miles from the southern tip of Africa in the Indian Ocean. The islands are part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands.
Ok I did my best and looked it up on a Norwegian website! Whether you can pronounce it or not, this village in Greenland is undeniably charming, with its colorful houses nestled alongside a snowy mountain, and it’s a prime location for catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Palmerston is one of the Cook Islands and is a protectorate of New Zealand. Located in the Pacific Ocean, Palmerston is so remote, it receives just two shiploads of supplies every year. All but three of the island’s 62 inhabitants are descended from an Englishman named William Marsters, who settled there in 1863 before going on to have four wives and 23 kids.
