Who here could use a vacation?
What about a remote vacation without cell reception?
No phone calls, no texts, no email. It’s probably hard to envision as a busy lawyer. You’re always on the go, but a little relaxation will reset your brain and help you return to work refreshed.
Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?
Finding Remote Vacation Spots
Here are a few places that are a little (maybe a lot) off the beaten path and an incredible experience for tourists of any age.
1. Fjadrárgljúfur Canyon –This two kilometer canyon is 100 meters deep and is located in southern Iceland. If you don’t mind getting a little wet, you can hike inside the canyon where you’ll run into some incredible waterfalls. If you prefer to stay dry, take the walking path on the canyon’s edge for a beautiful view from above.
2. Athabasca Glacier – This awe-inspiring glacier sits in the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park, Canada. This six kilometer tongue of ice is always in motion…slooooooooow motion. It moves a few centimeters a day and is the most accessible part of the icefield. There are several options for ice walks, or you can enjoy the view from afar.
3. Katskhi Pillar – This seriously-cool rock formation is a limestone monolith located in the village of Katskhi, Georgia. On top sits a seventh century chapel and a monk. Even though you can’t climb the rickety iron ladder to the top, it’s still quite a sight.
4. Svalbard Islands – These islands are located in between Norway and the North Pole (so this is a cold trip guys), but there’s surprisingly so much to do. These islands are the perfect place to check out the Northern Lights while enjoying top of the line bars and restaurants. A must-do while you’re there – dog sledding.
5. Yangon City – This city is the former capital of Burma. There’s so much history in this town, with a colonial feel in the city and more traditional Asian architecture on the outskirts. There’s a wide variety of ethnicities so you get to experience a lot of culture in one visit. Be ready for shopping, traditional dances and entertainment all in one place.
It’s hard to imagine yourself putting down the to-do list and taking off on an adventure. Clients, coworkers and family are always trying to pull you in different directions.
With spring coming, it’s time to refresh and renew on a trip. Pick a remote destination, pack up those bags and relax a little.
