Introduction
Trips to the most isolated community in the world need to be well planned. Many would-be visitors have sailed to Tristan, but failed to land. This section seeks to provide potential visitors with the facts to make enquiries to enable them to set foot on Tristan da Cunha, and possibly one of the outlying islands, to enjoy this extra-ordinary place.
With time and careful planning a stay on Tristan is achievable - so read on -
but don't tell the travel agents!

Tristan's isolation in statistics :
(note : distances are ' as the crow flies' - miles are statute and not nautical miles)

To St Helena - 2429 km - 1509 miles (nearest community)
To Cape Town - 2805 km - 1743 miles (nearest mainland city)
To Rio de Janeiro - 3353 km - 2083 miles
To Stanley, Falkland Islands - 3902 km - 2424 miles
To London UK - 9881 km - 6140 miles


All scheduled ships depart from Cape Town
Organising a visit for independent travellers
There are no package tours for independent travellers, no hotels, no airport, no holiday reps.,
no night clubs no restaurants, no jet skis nor safe sea swimming.
Visitors are limited due to lack of available shipping berths (only 12 on fishing vessels).
Nevertheless, Tristan da Cunha is one of the world's most sought after destinations for travellers
determined to find a special place.....read on, take advice, plan carefully and you can make it!
Prepare yourself for the trip of a life time to the extra-ordinary community of Tristan da Cunha.
