Bouvet Island -

It’s the most remote uninhabited island on the planet. This volcanic landmass can be found 1700 km north of Antarctica and 2600 km Southwest of South Africa, smack dab in the middle of nowhere. There are no dangerous animals on this glacier-covered rock. Where the danger comes from is the inhospitable weather? The threat of earthquakes, and the fact that if you get into any sort of trouble, rescue is a long way off. There are no ports and no airstrips on Bouvet. So, the most reliable way to get onto this desolate island is by ship-launched helicopter.
