It’s fun to plan vacations, thinking of all of the really great places you can go for a visit. The world is filled with spectacular views and exotic locations. With modern airfare, we can travel anywhere in the world in less than a day (usually) and see all sorts of sites. You can enjoy everything from the scorching desert, to the wet and hot tropics, to the northern evergreen forests, to the icy and snowy north (or icy south!). We can climb unbelievably tall mountain peaks or swim very deep under the ocean. We can visit the North Pole or the South Pole, the Saharan Desert, or Death Valley and everything in between. The world is an open book waiting to be explored, filled with interesting people, new cultures, interesting new foods and flavors, and new flora and fauna for us to discover.
But some places just aren’t meant to be explored by humans or outsiders.
There are tons of places all over the world that, no matter who you are or how much money or influence you have, you will just never be able to visit them. Ever. These no-go places range from the scary to the secretive, the wild to the even wilder. Whether it’s for security, preservation, protection, science, or even for your own safety, these are the top 10 places no one can visit no matter who they are.

9 Snake Island
8 Mount Weather
7 The Vatican Secret Archives
6 North Sentinel Island
5 Area 51
4 Chapel Of The Ark Of The Covenant
3 Moscow Metro-2
2 The Mormon Church Secret Vault
Surtsey Island is a result of a volcanic event that spanned over five years, leaving a brand new island in the middle of the ocean near Iceland. So, the United Nations decided to put a ban on traveling there so that the scientific community would have a way to study natural progression of evolution and ecological succession without human interference. Only a couple of scientists are allowed to visit, and they are under strict rules on what they can do while there. The untainted island shows scientists migration patterns and how plants and animal colonize new places. Too bad we can’t see it!
