Men used to believe the world was flat and you’d fall off the end if you went too far but today, edge of the world destinations are held in awe by adventure travelers. We’ve pretty much explored and discovered all parts of the Earth but there are remote destinations where you can still feel like Marco Polo, Captain Cook or Christopher Columbus. If you want to connect with your inner explorer, here’s some edge of the world destinations to consider.
1. Norway’s North Cape
If you’re looking for edge of the world destinations, there’s no place that fits the description better than the North Cape plateau in Finnmark, Norway (not on the European continent, at least). Taking a photo here is seen as a great achievement by passionate road trippers, especially RVers and motorcyclists who love spending their lives on the road. It seems that arriving here always calls for a celebration – the tons of empty champagne bottles you can see in the recycle bins placed in the area stand proof of this. But my guess is that counting champagne bottles won’t be the first thing on your mind when you get here. You will be 1,000 feet above the ocean, admiring the endless skies, the churning water and the famous northern lights that make you feel you’re on an alien planet. This is surely one of the most awe-inspiring remote destinations!
