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.

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.

Dudleytown Back in the infancy of our country Dudleytown was a small settlement in Cornwall, Connecticut. The Dudley family owned the land, but never turned the area into an official town. For decades they allowed others to settle on their plot. Unfortunately for those trying to forge a life in the settlement the land wasn’t very good for farming and it was ultimately abandoned sometime in the 19th century. Trees had their way with the land for centuries and starting in the 1980’s rumors of ghost activities began. This lead to increased vandalism. As a result the owners closed the land to the public and today it remains private property. 5. North Brother Island Urban explorers and history buffs alike are drawn to New York’s North Brother Island, a 13 acre stretch of land that was once home to Riverside, a quarantine hospital. The medical facility operated from 1885 until 1963, during which time it famously housed Typhoid Mary. After it's closure the hospital was left totally abandoned. With no one there to keep things tidy, nature has had her way with the building. Trees and roots run rampant in and around the structure creating a fascinating site for those brave enough to traverse the desolate island. 4. Thurmond This town in West Virginia, which is almost completely vacant has become a relic of the past. Today much of it is owned by the National Park Service but it still looks the way it did when it was a booming coal town in the 1920’s. Though it's mostly a ghost town there are, at last count five people still living within its borders. In 2005, during city elections, six of Thurmond’s seven residents sought election. 3. South Pass City Wyoming In the mid 1800’s South Pass City was used as a stage and telegraph station along the Oregon Trail. Gold was discovered in the vicinity in 1866 and by 1870 the town was filled with thousands of prospectors. Everyone hoped that large deposits of gold lay further under the earth, but none were found and by the mid 1870’s the population was down to around 100 individuals. A few businesses continued to forge a living in South Pass City, but these pioneer families finally moved out in 1949. By the end of the 20th century many of the town’s homes were in a state of disrepair until finally being restored as a historic site for tourists. 2. Cahaba Cahaba established itself in the history of Alabama and the United States by becoming the first permanent state capital in 1820. It's low elevation and location at the confluence of the Alabama and Cahaba rivers meant that the village was subject to seasonal flooding. Consequently the capital was moved to Tuscaloosa in January 1826. Cahaba would remain an important town and become a major distribution point for cotton. During the Civil War the Confederacy seized Cahabas railroad and turned a large cotton warehouse into a prison, where roughly 3,000 Union soldiers were held. Floods persisted throughout the town’s history and by the turn of the 20th century most of it's buildings and people had been relocated. It became the subject and setting of many ghost stories. Today Cahaba is a fascinating historical site where visitors can still see old streets, cemeteries and government buildings of what was once the state capital. Hey friends hope you’re enjoying the vid.

And now number... 1. Bannack Montana Montana may not be the most popular or talked about state in America, but it's a really cool place to go, especially for those with a love of the outdoors. Just outside of Bannack State Park, in Beaverhead County lies Bannack a small town named after a tribe of Indians that has long since been abandoned. Founded in 1862 when gold was discovered in the area, Bannack briefly served as the capital of the Montana Territory in 1864. It persisted as a mining town, though its population dwindled steadily until the last residents left in the 1970’s. Today Bannack remains a very well preserved ghost town with buildings like the Methodist Church and Hotel Meade looking as though they could be put into full use at a moment's notice.

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.
