    Staying safe in the more remote places in the world


    For many people, having a real holiday means getting away from it all in some of the more remote places in the world, rather than spending time in the more popular, and invariably more crowded usual tourist destinations.

    Remote places in the world

    You may, for example, take a break at Skiary, a traditional stone cottage set along Loch Hourn’s shores in the Scottish Highlands’ northwest that can only be accessed via boat hire or on foot. Other remote places in the world you may choose to relax at include:

    • Three Camel Lodge bordering Mongolia’s Gobi Desert
    • Winterlake Lodge on the historic Iditarod Trail of Alaska
    • Fogo Island Inn, North America’s farthest outpost
    • Petit St.Vincent, a private Caribbean Island
    • Dunton Hot Springs, a former mining town nestling among Colorado’s San Juan Mountains

    Typically set within areas of spectacular beauty and offering visitors an opportunity to experience life in a tranquil, traditional way, these remote places in the world are, however, not only well away from the crowds, but often also from access to emergency services. Preventing personal injuries is therefore of utmost importance.

    Staying safe in these remote places in the world

    Preventing accidents on holiday is obviously of importance wherever you go, but while a slip, trip or fall in a popular tourist destination close to emergency facilities can be dealt with quickly and fairly easily, breaking your leg by slipping and falling in the spectacular, but remote setting of the Scottish Highlands, for example, would require a major rescue operation. It is therefore vital to prevent slips, trips and falls and other accidental injuries by:

    • Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear when exploring your surroundings
    • Following locals’ advice on where it is safe to go when
    • Minding your step at all times to prevent injuries by slipping, tripping or falling 
    • Always letting someone know where you are heading and when you are planning to return
    • Ensuring any equipment you are using to participate in climbing, water sports and other activities is in good, safe working condition

    Depending on where you are, carrying emergency supplies and some form of communication system to enable you to call for help in case an accident does occur is also elementary.
