The world is a large place, but at times it feels as though few destinations haven’t been uncovered. Indeed, our frontiers are always shrinking, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still travel to the most remote places on earth. From the endless deserts of Morocco to the isolated but biodiverse rainforests of Borneo, we’ve compiled our top TRIPS by Culture Trip for exploring the most remote places on Earth.
1 . Morocco, for mountain hikes and stargazing in the Sahara
If you’re looking for a Saharan adventure, this 13-day overland journey through Morocco could be the remote trip you’ve been craving. You’ll start in the busy coastal cities of Casablanca and Tangier, but soon enough, you’ll be hiking through the Rif Mountains, stargazing under dark skies and riding camels through endless desert dunes.You’ll also visit Merzouga – one of Morocco’s most isolated settlements – where you’ll explore Berber culture and have time for a few desert cocktails in the evening.

3 . Borneo, for an orangutan safari and spectacular sunrise hikes
The Bornean rainforest is one of the most beautiful places to visit on Earth – but sadly it’s also under continual threat from deforestation and habitat destruction. You’ll see both sides of this beautiful ecosystem on a 10-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour into Sabah, starting with a visit to the sun bear and orangutan sanctuaries near Sandakan. You’ll head out into the jungle for a cruise along Kinabatangan River – where you might see orangutans in the wild – before travelling overland to the coral reefs of Kota Kinabalu by way of Southeast Asia’s tallest mountain.

5 . The Outer Hebrides, for discovering the UK's last frontier
You might think that the UK is one of the most explored countries on the planet, but head to the far north of Scotland, and there’s still a frontier waiting to be discovered by travellers. We say “by travellers”, because the Outer Hebrides have a history of human habitation going back thousands of years, and you’ll learn more about that when you search out the whisky distilleries and seaside towns on the isles of Skye, Harris and Lewis. This group tour lasts seven days, and you’ll see the best of the Outer Hebrides in all of their remote glory.
