This summer I'm going to make a tour from Anchorage to Fairbanks, then to Valdez and then back to Anchorage. I might also see the dalton highway. I hope to make some nice remote pics!

Not totally remote, but this petrol station is in the middle of nowhere. It's on the N1 at Leeu-Gamka (~400km after leaving Cape Town).



Leeu-Gamka itself consists of a few small houses, and that's it.

Why the hell would someone ship their car from Russia to Iceland?

Hey, if you have money, why not to travel a little? It was a very expensive ferry though He said he paid more than 1000 Euro for a round-trip ticket Norway -> Iceland -> Denmark for a car + driver + passenger.

He made some other interesting automobile trips to Morocco and Syria.

While not the most remote by a long means, finding highways like this withing a heavily populated country like the United States is quite a feat.

US Highway 50, commonly noted as the "Loneliest Road in the United States."


However, due to increasing traffic flow because of its increased fame, its sister highway, US Highway 6 which parallels it, has a solid argument to take over the title.

US Highway 6, Nevada:


Since these roads are in Alaska, they deserve separate mention.

Dalton Highway




And some Dempster Highway in Canada for kicks:

I guess the road system in the Falkland Islands and Faroe Islands would be considered remote. The first for being the remotest road system in British territory, and the other for it's relative inaccessibility due to the fact it is only served by ferry from Norway, on it's run to Iceland.
