The most secluded island in the whole world is Bouvet Island and the closest land to it is Antarctica which is situated 1100 miles away. If you want to ever visit it, you would need to travel by ship across the South Atlantic Ocean and reach the destination with these specific coordinates: 54°25.8′S 3°22.8′E. The island is officially a Norwegian dependency and is also certified as a nature reserve. Either way, there is nothing that unique, nor special about the island besides the fact there was a working weather station there at some point in the mid 1980s.
However, in 1964 a British Navy expedition led by scientists visited the Bouvet Island to research a new area on the piece of land which had emerged due to volcanic eruptions. When the expedition reached the island, the research team was shocked to discover an abandoned lifeboat alongside a copper tank and other equipment. The boat was found in a lagoon and the oars were also there. There were absolutely no traces of people alive or dead and the mysterious boat was unidentifiable. The team did not have that much time to investigate the mystery of the boat’s origin and they only snapped a photo of it for further reference.
Another expedition visited the island a couple of years later and discovered that the life boat, the oars, the copper tank and all traces of equipment had disappeared.
The mystery of the abandoned boat on Bouvet Island still remains completely unresolved and maybe we will never know exactly who decided to visit the most remote island in the world and why.
