In our modern, hectic world of fast lives and supersonic jets, it’s easy to forget that there are still places on our incredible planet which are remote, isolated and very hard to reach. Need to get away from it all, on your next vacation? Then go right ahead and visit one of the world’s most remote corners and get far, faaaaar away from it all. For a superlative summer break, head to the Faroe Islands, a remote cluster of barren isles located half-way between Iceland and Norway. They are inhabited by 50,000 hardy folks (and even more sheep) and enjoy balmy summer highs of 10°C!

If you prefer a mountain getaway, then tackle the hard trek to reach Ushguli, an incredibly striking UNESCO listed enclave in the lower Caucasus Mountains of northern Georgia. For a true tropical getaway, then look no further than the Pitcairn Islands, the very last British land in the Pacific. Here you’ll meet descendants of the HMS Bounty who were so enchanted by this stunning place…that they became voluntarily shipwrecked.

Take a look at 8 of the most remote and beautiful locations on earth.
