Out the Aleutian chain to Dutch Harbor, and then north into the Bering Sea to near the Pribilof Islands, in the month of March, by sea.

Is it still considered remote if the whole world is watching on TV?

In the USA, it'd be southeastern Oregon, take a look at one of those night lights maps and there's a black hole there....very remote.

Elsewhere:

Bali
Fiji
Parts of NZ and Australia
Areas of British Columbia

My best friend has been to Ascension, he is a meteorologist who was posted there for a few months. So I'll take Ascension by proxy.

I used to know a guy who was born on Yap, the island famous for its big stone money. It was a German colony then, so his birth certificate is in German. His dad was a telegrapher, and he grew up in the Azores.

Lots of the places people mentioned here aren't remote. If you have cell phone service, it ain't remote.

Using that definition, in addition to the general lack of infrastructure and a dearth of civilization, there is really only one place I've spent considerable time in that I'd call remote.

Kluane National Park and Reserve in the Yukon in spring. I saw no humans for 5 days once I got to the backcountry. I did see about 8-9 grizzlies, though.
