Grise Fiord If you were ever looking on the globe or google earth at the islands in Northern Canada and wondered if people actually live there, the answer is yes and Grise Fiord is probably one the most shocking examples. Located within the Nunavut Territory of Canada, it’s certainly one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, with a yearly average temperature of -16.5 degrees C and the northernmost settlement in Canada. Not too surprisingly, the population here seems to be steadily declining and only houses 150 permanent residents.

  • Island Communities in Scotland addressing Overtourism

    In the past twelve months, the challenge of managing increasing volumes of visitors on Scottish islands have come to the fore. In Orkney tourism stakeholders at their annual conference in March discussed how to cope with success. The “discovery” of Orkney by the cruise lines has led to some strains within the tourism community and concerns about overtourism. The islands have a relatively high level of repeat visitors and when the cruise ships are in the honeypot sites are crowded. Arran too faces the challenge and Skye has been in the news this year with stories on the BBC Skye Visitors Toiletting outdoors, a Skye Tourism Tax and in August Police Scotland were asking people not to visit without a reservation.

    We challenge the stereotypical definition of an island, as it is more than merely a landmass encompassed by water. We have analyzed contrasting environments, beginning with Deal Island and traveling over 3,600 miles to the Andes Mountains, visiting a bio reserve called Parque de la Papa. We compare these cultures as they are affected by their isolation and heavy dependence upon their natural resources, the oyster and potato, respectively.

A vote this week by creditors to give ailing Catalyst Paper Corp a debt restructuring deal came as relief for people in Crofton, Port Alberni, and Powell River. The road from near financial melt down for the mill operator did not come without sacrifice. The district of North Cowichan, where the Crofton mill operates, gave Catalyst Paper a 2.2 million dollar tax break in their time of trouble, and the district left residential home owners holding the bag. On average a home owner in the mid-island community will pay 275 dollars more each year in tax. The shift is being called necessary by...

Very few people have ever been to these 13 crazy remote places it shocking how secluded these cities and towns actually are. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 4. Grise Fiord If you were ever looking on the globe or google earth at the islands in Northern Canada and wondered if people actually live there, the answer is yes and Grise Fiord is probably one the most shocking examples. Located within the Nunavut Territory of Canada, it’s certainly one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, with a yearly average temperature of -16.5 degrees C and the northernmost settlement in Canada. Not too surprisingly, the population here seems to be steadily declining and only houses 150 permanent residents. No connecting roads means the only way to connect to the outside world is by airplane. Due to the difficulty of getting products to this isolated community, prices are much higher for everyday items and it’s like this for much of the Nunavut Territory. In this photo we see a gallon of milk here priced at an outrageous 10 canadian dollars in the capital city of the Inuit Territory, Iqaluit 3. La Rinconada, Peru The highest permanent settlement in the world would be La Rinconada, located near the border of Bolivia in the Andes Mountains. Situated 16,700, or 5100 feet above sea level it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most isolated communities in the world. In this photo, you see a giant glacier known as, Bella Durmiente or Sleeping beauty looking down upon the city. With over 50,000 inhabitants, it’s not necessarily a small city community. If you’re thinking about visiting this place though, think again. There are no hotels and no hospitals! The community also lacks police and government presence as well. Built as an unregulated gold mining town, it’s home to some of the most brutal living conditions imaginable. Many visitors would suffer from altitude sickness, but with the lure of striking it rich with gold, people have found a way to adapt to the environment. Although this might look somewhat like a picturesque city, the lake in the background you see is heavily polluted with mercury and cyanide. Pollution is a serious issue here and will most likely be the city’s downfall in the future. 2. Longyearbyen- Long- yay-er-bine Just by looking at Svalbard on a map you can probably guess that it’s isolated. The largest settlement and administrative capital of Svalbard, Norway has a population of 2,100 residents. It’s the northernmost settlement with over 1000 residents in the world and was nearly destroyed by the German Navy during World War II. It’s located 1,269 miles or 2042 kilometers north from the Norwegian Capital of Oslo, making it a tad difficult to govern. Here in Longyearbyen, snowmobiles are actually the prefered method of transportation. A few ships will transport coal from this archipelago and with a few flights from Oslo and Russia each day, Longyearbyen keeps contact with the outside world. The city is so north, that sometimes during certain months, the sun will never rise and even sunlight during midnight! 1.Tristan da Cunha This island gets the nickname as the most remote inhabited island in the world because it sort of is. Tristan is the tip of a volcano thrusted upwards from the ocean floor and by looking at the signs, you’ll definitely feel a long ways away from home. The elevation peaks at 2000 meters or about 6500 feet. The closest land mass is Saint Helena only about 1500 miles or 2400 km away. It seems to be situated directly between the southern tips of Africa and South America and is only accessible by navigating the brutal seas . You might imagine that life on the world’s most remote island is a little bit rough, but people here enjoy a good standard of living here. Crime seems virtually nonexistent on the biggest settlement called Edinbourgh of the Seven Seas. Many family owns potato patches to grow there own food. Despite the good quality of living an active volcano constantly threatens to destroy the city and almost did in the 1960’s. It’s not just people living here, the local rockhopper penguins are extremely popular among those who are somehow able visit this isolated community.

From the isolated native people in the highlands of Tibet to the mysterious islands on a few people will dare to live on, here are 11 most isolated communities Subscribe to American Eye! 5. Most Isolated Capital What do you think the coldest capital on earth is? Moscow, Bern, Ottawa? All Wrong! If you guessed Ulaanbaatar located in Mongolia good job! To the south lies a strange, dry, cold Gobi desert that receives little to no precipitation all year. To the North, you have siberia. This city is regarded as the coldest capital on earth and suffers from long and unbearable freezing winters! We sort of see it as the most isolated capital as well and this whole area of Central Asia is just extremely remote! We don’t even think Genghis Khan could have handled temperatures this cold. Just walking on the street with any exposed skin can result in pain. Do you ever hear anyone saying, hey i’m taking off work to go to Mongolia for a week!? Uh no.. You really wouldn't want to forget a jacket living here. It’s also the largest city on the list with roughly 1.3 million inhabitants which is nearly half the country's population. We’re still surprised that mongolians got out of their huts and even built a capital! Due to its high elevation, proximity to Siberia and lack of precipitation, it’s a rough place to live nonetheless. Due to a large amount of permafrost soil in Mongolia, it makes building foundations difficult. It’s believed this is why many Mongolians live in houses known as Yurts. 4. Siwa Oasis Within the vast Sahara desert lies the Siwa Oasis, in one of the most isolated settlements in Egypt. Situated near the Libyan border, it’s about 348 miles or 560 kilometers west of the capital Cairo. Living here however is nothing new and the earliest known settlers came here during the 10th century BC. Being completely surrounded by dry, inhospitable desert has allowed the Siwa people to develop a unique culture from the rest of the Middle East, which is often seen in their style of artwork, jewelry and their same sex marriage ceremonies. They also speak what’s known as the Siwi or Oasis berber, making them somewhat foreign to the eastern part of Egypt. Here in this photo we see a girl wearing the traditional dress of Siwa while grinding salt. The oasis is inhabited by about 30,000 Siwa Berbers and the hot springs are known to occasionally attract tourists. If you’re looking for some good dates, the people of the Siwa Oasis have been growing them for the past 3,500 years 3. Montecristo The tiny island off the coast of Tuscany, Italy called Montecristo has been shrouded in mystery since the 16th century. To this day, only 1000 tourists are permitted to visit the nature reserve located on this island each year. On top of it, they have to wait 3 years in order to get the visa, just to visit! Is there something the Italian government doesn’t want people to find out about here or is it just to preserve the nature. This was also home to the famous French writer Alexandre Dumas, who wrote the 3 Musketeers. In the novel The count of Monte Cristo, he told of legends about buried treasure left by pirates here. Is it a coincidence that excavations are also strictly permitted on this island? The current population of this island is labelled at 2 people. 2. Szigetszentmiklos -(see-gets-zent-miklos) This community in Hungary is found just about southwest of Budapest in Google maps and it’s quite strange how isolated they seem. The little hungarian community is completely surrounded by water near the Danube River and is quite unurbanized in comparison to the big capital city. There’s about 30,000 residents of this little town which but only a few hundred choose to live on these islands. Villagers enjoy hunting, fishing, and boating in order to stay self sufficient. You don’t really get a true sense of how isolated it is until you kind roam around here on google earth. This photo here shows the tiny fishing community on the body of water known as Pebble lake, and it looks like a good village to survive the zombie apocalypse Tristan De Cuhna This island gets the nickname as the most remote inhabited island in the world because it sort of is. Tristan is the tip of a volcano thrusted upwards from the ocean floor and by looking at the signs, you’ll definitely feel a long ways away from home. The elevation peaks at about 6500 feet.

Kergulan Islands These extremely remote islands also have another name that fits conveniently with its remote location sometimes they're referred to as the Desolation Islands. Svalbard, Norway Svalbard feels like another time even when viewing pictures since it's still pretty untouched by today's standard and the population is relatively low. Motuo, China Another one of the most isolated places on the planet is Motuo, located in Eastern Tibet. It's the only county that remained without a highway link until 2013 to the outside world among all of China's counties. Socotra Island If you're a fan of Sci-Fi, but not so much of people than you might want to try to visit Socotra Island. Also, known as the world's most alien looking place on Earth. This place makes you feel as if you've taken a step back to another era of Earth's history and geography. Supai, Arizonia, United States One of the only remote locations on our list from the United States has to be the tiny, quirky town of Supai, Arizonia. Pitcairn Island, South Pacific Pitcairn Island is one of the most secluded places in the world, but it's also a must-see for adventure seekers. Tristan Da Cunha The beautiful island of Tristan Da Cunha is enchanting and quite unique but it will take you quite some time to get there. It can only be reached by taking a week-long boat trip from South Africa. La Rinconada, Peru Technically speaking, La Rinconada is one of the highest elevated towns in the world, sitting at an incredible height of 16,700 feet above sea level.

In the past twelve months, the challenge of managing increasing volumes of visitors on Scottish islands have come to the fore. In Orkney tourism stakeholders at their annual conference in March discussed how to cope with success. The “discovery” of Orkney by the cruise lines has led to some strains within the tourism community and concerns about overtourism. The islands have a relatively high level of repeat visitors and when the cruise ships are in the honeypot sites are crowded. Arran too faces the challenge and Skye has been in the news this year with stories on the BBC Skye Visitors Toiletting outdoors, a Skye Tourism Tax and in August Police Scotland were asking people not to visit without a reservation. What can be done? Speakers include: Moderator: Caroline Warburton National Strategy Delivery Coordinator, The Scottish Tourism Alliance Sheila Gilmore, Executive Director VisitArran & The Arran Trust Cameron Taylor, Orkney Tourism Group Shirley Spear, Director, SkyeConnect (Founder Three Chimneys Restaurant)

We challenge the stereotypical definition of an island, as it is more than merely a landmass encompassed by water. We have analyzed contrasting environments, beginning with Deal Island and traveling over 3,600 miles to the Andes Mountains, visiting a bio reserve called Parque de la Papa. We compare these cultures as they are affected by their isolation and heavy dependence upon their natural resources, the oyster and potato, respectively. Produced by Patricia Petty, Madhu Cornelius, Victoria Alpaugh, and Kelly Dobroski during their participation of the 2013 Chesapeake Semester at Washington College. http://www.washcoll.edu/centers/ces/chesapeake-semester.php

RICHMOND - Its called BC Street at the Richmond O-zone. But to Vancouver Island communities looking for exposure and economic development the pedestrian laneway outside Richmond City Hall is more like easy street, as thousands of visitors pass through. Tofino and Qualicum beach are here with a display-house to entice newcomers and investors alike. And while Tofino Mayor John Fraser chats up potential visitors, the region shows its best. One booth over the ecstatic mayor of the relatively small municipality of Sooke is welcoming guests of her own, at the communitys display. But there's a picture visitors to BC street aren't seeing: that of Victoria's Inner Harbour, because the city of Victoria declined an invitation to participate. Why? The mayor says the city blew its half-million dollar Olympic budget on hosting major events such as the torch relay kickoff Oct. 31, and opening weekend festivities in Spirit Square.

http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi CROFTON- Paying your taxes doesn't sting quite so much if you feel you're paying your fair share, but in some communities people are wondering. A vote this week by creditors to give ailing Catalyst Paper Corp a debt restructuring deal came as relief for people in Crofton, Port Alberni, and Powell River. The road from near financial melt down for the mill operator did not come without sacrifice. The district of North Cowichan, where the Crofton mill operates, gave Catalyst Paper a 2.2 million dollar tax break in their time of trouble, and the district left residential home owners holding the bag. On average a home owner in the mid-island community will pay 275 dollars more each year in tax. The shift is being called necessary by local government officials, but some people aren't happy. " I'm kinda angry." said Litza Slemko. "That is a lot of money on a fixed income. So I'm not very happy about it ." District Mayor Jon Lefebure says it simply had to be done to preserve the massive tax base the mill provides each year. "A short term pain for residence who have to pay a higher tax bill, but in the long run with the mill still running they will be paying huge taxes for many years to come." Thursday a BC Supreme Court Judge will look over the creditors overwhelmingly positive vote to see Catalyst paper come back from the brink of a sale process.
