For seasoned travelers who have “been there, done that,” the
problem when planning the next “dream” trip is how to avoid ending up in
a location full of other holidaymakers, all eagerly clutching the
latest edition of the Lonely Planet guide, determined to see and
experience what the hoi polloi has yet to enjoy.
One sure-fire way of achieving this objective is to target somewhere
that few have visited; however, in a world where jet travel to almost
every corner of the globe has become the norm, these destinations are
becoming increasingly rare.
Two such locations lie close to both the North and South Poles –
territories that are still relatively unspoilt by virtue of their
isolation and harsh climate, but where stunningly beautiful landscapes
are just waiting to be enjoyed.
