Many of these places are hard to get to, some only by foot, others only by train, boat or bush planes. But all of them have one factor in common: they offer you space for yourself. From the luxurious to the basic, from the Arctic north to desert landscapes in Africa, from an elegant refuge in the Himalayas to an abandoned village in Italy - leave your daily life behind you, at least for a while.
