Travelling is a huge part of our lives with the list of remote places we would like to visit constantly growing. What really inspires us are natural and untouched places. In a world that seems to be always on the go, destinations that are peaceful and off the beaten track with communities still living the way they have done for hundreds of years, are what draws us the most.

Previous experiences that we have both had whilst travelling such as meeting a shaman from the Wiwa tribe on the Lost City Trek in Colombia, visiting ancient Mayan ruins at Palenque, Chichen Itza or Tikal in Mexico and Guatemala and truly getting in touch with nature in Canada have enriched our lives and left us with everlasting memories.

Our experiences have pushed our passion for travel and especially remote travel even further. Since starting our travel blog we have had the pleasure of getting to know more and more inspiring travellers from all over the world. Travellers than introduce us to new remote places through their own blogs and adventures. In this post we have put together our top 7 remote places that we would love to visit to also help in bringing you some exploration inspiration from these inspiring travel peeps.

7 Epic Remote Places On Our List

Sweden

We have always dreamed of a trip over to the Nordic countries, especially Sweden. From what we have seen this country is stunning all year round. The vastness, raw untouched beauty and outdoor life is what rates high on our list when deciding to visit a place, with Sweden ticking all of these boxes. An account we have connected with is Smålandstorpet, a cottage owned and run by Maria and husband Johan. With 300 acres of land in the Swedish countryside both dazzling in summer and in winter. This retreat is accompanied by lakes, forests and some serious peace and quiet. We couldn’t think of a better place to get away from it all.

For us log fires, biking, hiking, cabins in the woods, lakes, visiting the famous Swedish spa’s and trying Swedish ‘Fika’ all in a quiet secluded retreat is our idea of paradise.

Kyrgyzstan

Really off the beaten track is Kyrgyzstan, brought firmly to our attention by fellow travel bloggers Nomadasuarus. The landscape, awesome hiking and the people’s relationship with their land has placed this little visited country very high on our travel wish list. We also love Alesha and Jarryd’s 14 Awesome Things To Do In Issyk Kul, Kyrgyzstan’ – learn how to build a yurt? Um, yes please!

Nomadasuarus are heading back to the beautiful Kyrgyzstan in 2019 so be sure to checkout their tour if you are interested in travelling there.

Alaska

After spending a lot of time in Canada, adventuring in Whistler as well as road tripping over to the Icefield’s Parkway in Alberta we are eager to explore more of the landscape over in North America. Our friends and fellow adventures Pia Nemec & Chris Cash brought the magic of Alaska to us in their posts and have ignited our passion to head back over to that side of the world, with America’s most northly state being at the very top of our itinerary. The raw beauty of the landscape and far-away scenery is exactly what we love, we can wait to discover what they have captured in their amazing photos.

Bhutan

Bhutan really caught our eyes last year when we came across The Planet Ds post ’18 Things to do in Bhutan – A Comprehensive Guide of What Not to Miss. We always knew that Bhutan was a country that has so much to offer with its interesting culture, gorgeous scenery and enchanting architecture. This has been a place that has always screamed adventure for us but after reading Dave and Deb’s post it has sat in the forefront of our minds ever since.

Ethiopia

Africa, a continent that between us we have seen very little of but that we would both love to explore more. After following the travels and adventures of Steph from Big world Small Pockets Ethiopia was placed strong on our must-visit list. The people, food, amazing landscapes and nature just look incredible. Steph’s The Ideal Ethiopia Itinerary : Seeing The Best of This Spellbinding Country which tells of her travels to ancient rock churches, encounters with unique indigenous cultures and scaling active volcanoes has us wanting to explore Ethopia as soon as possible.

Antarctica

As far as remote places go you don’t get much more away from it all than Antarctica! With scenery like no other and the raw abundance of wildlife , Antarctica ticks all of the adventure related boxes for us. We have been connected with Epic 7 Travel for a while now and their stunning photos of Antarctica have left us inspirited for more. Having such a love for Penguins, we absolutely adore the way that Marielena and Jason have captured these little dudes in their natural habitat. We also love their ’25 Surprising Things To Do In Antarctica’ post and can’t wait to one day experience all of these things for ourselves.

Myanmar

With its deep and fascinating history, our sights have increased on Myanmar in the last couple of years due to following our friend, historian and film maker Alex Bescoby. This stunning country steeped in culture, intrigue, diverse landscapes and beautiful people is certainly somewhere we will be taking a trip to soon.

Alex alongside his Grammar Productions team has really brought to light the fascinating history behind Myanmar’s Royal Family as well as covering what life is like for them now. His adventures whilst filming, inspiring photos and stories behind the people he has met along they way have all firmly placed Myanmar on our remote places to visit list.

about the wilder route...

The Wilder Route - Author Bio. Image shows Kelly & Adam sat on a rock with a cloud encompassed mountain behind them, they are facing the camera & smiling. Kelly is wearing a bright yellow coat, a brown hat, jeans & yellow leg warmers. Adam is wearing a navy blue coast & jeans.

In 2017 Kelly & Adam Peck embarked on a journey that would change their lives forever... 

Equipped with a couple of second-hand bikes, they took a one-way flight to Havana, Cuba &, after a cycling escapade that took them over four hundred kilometres - through remote villages & untouched landscapes, the roots of The Wilder Route were firmly planted. 

From there the adventure was destined to continue... this intrepid couple spent the next 10 months soaking up the vibrance of Mexico, hiking up volcanoes in Guatemala, taking in the wild scenery of Canada & experiencing the beauty & diversity of Colombia, before eventually returning to the UK. 

With the feeling of exploration in their souls, Kelly & Adam knew that they wanted to build a life that brought them closer to nature, a life that made adventure part of their every day. Selling most of their belongings & packing the rest of what they owned into their tiny home on wheels, van life became the next step of their journey.

Since moving into their motorhome in 2018 (a Bessacar E560 named Barnaby) they have experienced many more magical moments, built their online business on the road & have even planned a wedding & said "I do" along the way.

Featured in publications such as Wanderlust Magazine & Housesitting Magazine & speaking at events such as Destinations ShowsBorderless Live & The Caravan & Motorhome Show about living a location-independent lifestyle - they are passionate about helping & inspiring others to explore, to connect with nature &, to live alternatively.
