Do you need a CHALLENGE? These are the most complicated places to access in the world + VIDEOS!

NordenBladet – Modern traveling opportunities are fast and powerful, letting us visit most of the places in the world during one day. But there still exist a few places which are very hard to get to. There are even a few places where a human has never stepped his foot. If you are looking for a traveling challenge, then Lonelyplanet has chosen three places for you.

Pitcairni island
Located in the Pacific Ocean and belonging to the Great Britain, only 49 people live there. The closes airport is 531 miles away on Mangareva island. But even from there heads just  one flight per week to Tahhiti. All the necessary stuff is brought from Mangareva to Pitcairni once each 3 month by boat, the journey takes 32 hours. The return ticket for this boat trip costs 5000 USD dollars. If you feel like you should move temporarily to Pitcairni, you’ll be given a free piece of land to build a house.

Kerguelen islands
The islands located in the middle of the Indian Ocean are also known as the Desolation islands. The distance from the nearest populated point to Madagascar  is 3300 km. There are constantly around 50-100 scientists on the island. The Kerguelen islands are visited once in three months by a ship which departs from the Reunion island, the trip takes 6 days. The highest points of the island is a peak of a mountain which has been conquered only by a few people. That’s why the island is considered to be one of the most isolated places in the world.

The volcano of Sidley
Sidley is Antarctica’s highest volcano (4284m) and is situated in the region’s most isolated place – on Marie Byrdi land, which doesn’t particularly belong to any country. It is already complicated to reach Antarctica as there is no regular transport system to there from any place in the world. In the course of history, only two expeditions have reached the peak of the volcano.
