However if you are an explorer in search for adventure, pack your bags and prepare for a risky undertaking on your luxury yacht.
Tristan de Cunha, St Helena
Welcome to the most remote inhabited island in the world, sailing past you will fall of the earth. Here are some facts, this volcanic island in the south Atlantic Ocean, is approximately 2.150 km from the nearest coast of South America. Only 250 people live on the island, which are largely descendants of 19th-century castaways and former slaves.
One of the most difficult to spot birds in the world, a non flying rail, resides on the nearby island named ‘Inaccessible Island’. The name says it all, on ‘Inaccessible Island’ it is extremely difficult to land. The only settlement on the island Tristan de Cunha has no restaurants, hotels or airport, and is only reachable by a 6 day boat trip. However, if you own a yacht with a cruising speed of lets say 25 knots and a capable range of at least 1300 NM, depart from Cape Town, South Africa and it should take you just a couple of days.
Northern Patagonia, Chile
Home to temperate rain forest, glaciers, fjords, and hot springs, northern Patagonia is one of the wildest landscapes on earth. Patagonia is bounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and many bodies of water that connect them.
The Northern Patagonia Icefield is the second largest masses of ice outside the polar region and home to many of the most spectacular sights on the planet. The area is sparsely populated, main source of income in the region revolves around fishing for salmon and tourism. The marina fauna will leave you with your mouth wide open; pinguins; elephant seals; killer whales and if you are lucky an encounter with the southern right whale. Get your needed supplies at Puerte Chacabuco and then head down to Laguna San Rafeal National Park.
New Hebrides Trench, Pacific Ocean
Get your diving gear and Aurora Submarine ready to descent down into the unexplored deep sea trench New Hebrides in the Pacific, located off the eastern coast of Australia. Scientist didn’t delve into this submarine trench until the end of 2013. By sending underwater robots into this crack in the earth, at almost four and a half miles deep researchers found marine life totally unlike those known to men before. Tired of exploring, than head to Tanna Island part of the Republic of Vanuatu, home to the active volcano, Mt Yasur. Wild tropical tropical landscape, white beaches and warm Pacific hospitality make it a top location for an adventures holiday.
