Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland

Founded in 1925 by settlers from Tasiilaq and West Greenland, Ittoqqortoormiit is about as far away as you can get from any other inhabited area of Greenland. It’s so remote that you need a helicopter ride from the airport to get to the town, itself.

Its 450 residents enjoy dog sledding and camping, while tourists visit to see the Northern Lights and other natural wonders. It’s also a cruise destination despite sea ice that blocks any ships from docking for nine months out of the year.
