Most Remote Places In Human Civilization: Alert, Canada
The small village of Alert lies on the tip of the Nunavut territory in Canada a mere five hundred miles below the North Pole. With a year-round population of five people, Alert is one of the most treacherous and remote places in the world.
Surrounded by the Arctic Ocean, the temperatures in the region can reach as low as 40 degrees below zero. Because of it’s proximity to the North Pole, Alert is also susceptible to 24-hour darkness during winter and 24-hour sunlight during summer.
