Easter Island located in Polynesia is one of the most isolated inhabited islands on Earth. The Chilean territory is a remote volcanic island in the Pacific ocean. The isolated island is dabbed with imposing moai statues, relics of its ancient Polynesian culture.
The entire island has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hikes take in an extinct volcano, deserted beaches and the famous Moai stone figures and rock cravings.
Lake Baikal is known as the ‘Pearl of Siberia’. It is the world’s oldest and deepest lake. In winter, the water freezes over and its uneven icy surface. It’s best to travel by car to reach the most isolated ice grottoes.
However, be careful of cracks, slabs of ice and a dangerously slippery surface. Although, if you really want to test your perseverance, try walking across the lake. The village of Listvyanka, on its western shoreline, is a popular starting point for summertime wildlife-spotting tours, plus wintertime ice-skating and dog sledging.
