    Wow. I dig getting away from it all. But this is a bit much LOL. My wife visited Iquitos for some Peruvian healing stuff about 6 years ago. She said it was in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by jungle and noted the accessibility thing. Also said they saw jaguar footprints on the grounds a few years prior. I’d love to visit.

    Interesting facts to know. But is Greenland a country? I thought it was still part of Denmark

      Hi Bryan. Greenland has sovereignty over many aspects of its policy but it still is a part of the Kingdom of Denmark. I referred to it as a separate entity because it’s far away from the mainland (and actually much bigger than the mainland) and it has people with distinct characteristics and culture.

    I wouldn’t mind visiting Coober Pedy provided they have a good cafe or Coffee supplies from Melbourne lol. If I get good coffee i can survive anywhere 🙂

    Wow! Incredible! Yakutsk seems like a great place! If it’s mission impossible, the views might be worth it.

    Such an intriguing post. Where do you get all these gems of information from? 😀
    Funafuti is somewhere I really want to go, if it is safe. So surprising to see that in the most famous tourist destinations like Austrailia there can be cities which are so inaccessible

      I spend a lot of time in research when I write similar articles 😀 Funafuti is completely safe 😀 And yes Australia has some really isolated cities like Perth and Coober Pedy

    Interesting post, have you been to all of these places? I’ve visited two – Coober Pedy and Iquitos. Now I’m tempted to visit the rest!!

    This is quite an interesting list. I have never thought of places like this as India has many small villages. I went to one of about 150 families in Himachal Pradesh where people live in a time when words mattered and life was simple. But I wish I get to see one or two from this list, especially in Peru.

    Most of these places have extreme weather in common, so understandably less people live there. Pretty interesting that some survive because of a certain company or business. Coober Pedy has solved it by moving the town underground. While some of the big cities have underground tunnels and businesses (Houston and Montreal come to mind), I didn’t know there were entire underground cities! I wonder if Tuvalu receives some of the ships that carry cargo and passengers.

    In today’s times, it was a total surprise to know that there are still isolated cities in the world. When you highlighted the Villa Las Estrellas in Antarctica, I got reminded of our experience in Barrow, Alaska. Siwa Oasis in Egypt looks a place straight out of ancient movie scene and I got fascinated to see it. Large stone heads at Hanga Roa are quite iconic. Did not know that La Rinconada in Peru the highest human settlement. While these are the most isolated cities in the world, each of them has something so unique and would be worth to visit them.

      Barrow was indeed a good candidate for this list but I think all of these cities are more remote than Barrow 🙂 Thank you for your comment and I hope you visit some of these in the future

    A very interesting post indeed and one which opens your mind to new horizons and less touristy places to visit. I would love to visit some of these places but its not easy to achieve this as some are quiet and off beat. I have seen a lot about Iqaluit the capital of the most remote region in Canada- Nunavut on documentaries and really want to visit it one day. Thanks for sharing these unique destinations.

    This is one post that I had to scroll up and down just to note the contrast in the terrains and other stats provided by you and I was literally measuring the degree of isolation of each place..if I may say so! Honestly, never came across such a list and it was quite interesting to read about Siwa that looked straight out of the movie ‘The Mummy’ and Funafuti in Tuvalu. My mouth was wide-open reading about Funafuti…I wonder how the people actually survive or is this what life is meant to be-Simple and straight without any complexities of worrying about the outside world?!!

      Thank you, Meenakshi, I’m really glad you loved the article so much that you scrolled up and down several times. That really means a lot to me. Living on such an island isolated 1000s of kilometers away from the rest of the world sure sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? 🙂

    I never knew about these isolated cities of the world. These cities are beautiful and full of natural beauty and then also isolated. This post is interesting as all focus on most visited attractions, but you have introduced some places which are isolated and I have not read some of them before. Ittoqqortoormiit in Greenland looks like some Lego blocks city with colorful houses and snow. It is a wonder that only 450 residents live here. Thanks for sharing this post.
