Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, capital of Tristan da Cunha

Located almost 2,200km from its nearest neighbors, Edinburgh of the Seven Seas is the most remote permanent settlement in our planet. Since there is an agricultural area called “The Patches,” you’ll find most folks just call the community, “The Settlement.” It is a place where life seems normal, but there are distinctive differences that are noticed almost immediately. Instead of streets, for example, there are paved walking paths. Because there are so few private vehicles on the island, the license plates have...

This group of remote volcanic islands that is midway between Africa and South America is the most remote archipelago that is inhabited in the world today.

Its closest neighbor is the island Saint Helena, which is more than 2,000km away. It lies 2,090km from South America and 2,400km off the African coast. About 300 people call this archipelago their home.

The archipelago is named after its discoverer, Tristao da Cunha, when the islands were first recorded in 1506. The United States once laid claim to the islands, including providing the first permanent inhabitants on them, but they have been occupied by the British since 1816. From 1909-1919, no ships visited these islands – and even then, the purpose of the visit was to inform the islands of the outcome of the recent world war.

Natural wonders are what draw visitors to this rustic island paradise. A population of rockhopper penguins calls one of the islands in the archipelago home. The terrain is quite mountainous and the primary summit, Queen Mary’s Peak, is covered in snow during the winter. Land is communally owned on the island, farming and fishing are a way of life, and everything operates at a slower pace. The archipelago didn’t even receive live television until 2001.

Tristan da Cunha is not the easiest place to visit, but those who make it will discover that the island offers an unforgettable adventure. Life really can be slower and simplified and this group of islands proves it.

Visit Tristan da Cunha.
