Al Alam Palace
This royal palace in Oman is owned by the Sultan, who has retained the property through eight generations.
Isle Royale National Park is so isolated and challenging to reach that it receives fewer visitors each year than Yellowstone Park does in a single day.
The remote island can only be reached by boat or seaplane—though the National Park Service does offer a ferry.
Isle Royale is the most commanding island of a 200-islet archipelago in Lake Superior, which has the biggest surface area of any freshwater lake in the world. About a dozen families have leases on their cabins for life amid the island’s vast wilderness, but the significant majority of the residents are moose.
