When your wanderlust has you dreaming up a lengthy out-of-office message, it’s time to get away. And for that, the many invitingly isolated islands of the world are prime locations – places to truly disconnect and get reconnected with stress-free living. From walking with giant tortoises on a certain Ecuador archipelago to mushing huskies through the secret islands of the Arctic Circle, these are the top TRIPS by Culture Trip for exploring remote islands.
1 . Animal Kingdom: Walk With Wildlife on the Galápagos Islands
Few places stake a better claim to being the ultimate remote island getaway than the Galápagos. This age-old animal kingdom is home to some of the world’s most incredible creatures, including marine iguanas, fur seals and blue-footed boobies. All of it is yours to savour on land and at sea on this unbelievable five-day jaunt across the pristine Pacific archipelago. Glamp next to giant tortoises, swim next to sea lions and explore uninhabited islands that define “remote”.
