There are likely places in the world you want to explore and discover, but perhaps you’re not sure about actually going because it seems dangerous. After all, if you’re in the middle of the Amazon and twist your ankle, then who would be able to help you?
You hear horror stories of travelers across the globe getting lost in exotic and unfamiliar locations, quickly turning a dream vacation into a nightmare. The good news is that there’s a simple solution to staying in communication with others when on a walkabout – satellite phones and push-to-talk technology.
With a satellite phone or PTT in hand, you can explore some of the most exotic locations in the world with the peace of mind that if you run into trouble, you can get help. Here are some of our favorite exotic places to travel with satellite PTT on your side.
Death Valley National Park, Nevada
Death Valley is not a hospitable place, as the name implies, but it has some of the most beautiful and one-of-a-kind scenery in the world. Of course, many places in the 5,000 square mile Death Valley National Park are well outside of the range of a normal smartphone, so having satellite service on your side as you tour around will help ensure you stay safe as you take in the breathtaking sunsets from the salt flats or the sand dunes.
Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska
This Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge features 3,000 square miles of tundra, grasslands, meadows, forests, and lakes. It’s home to all types of wildlife, too, including the aptly named Kodiak brown bear and silka deer. The remoteness of this place is part of its awe-inspiring beauty, but it can also be dangerous for visitors, so it’s the perfect place to have satellite PTT with you.
Baxter State Park, Maine
There is a lot of undisturbed wilderness to explore in Baxter State Park. Here you can find hundreds of places to camp, 200,000 acres of wilderness, and over 200 miles of trails. With all this place has to offer, it is absolutely lacking in one thing – cell phone service. So make sure you pack essentials for emergencies if you plan to visit, including your satellite push-to-talk.
Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park, Hawaii
If you’re sick of exploring places in mainland U.S.A., then head to Hawaii. The Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park is on the northwest coast of the island of Kauai. It has amazing views of waterfalls, streams, and valleys that are unlike anywhere else you’ve experienced.
Gila National Forest, New Mexico
Three million acres of forest make the Gila National Forest a must for nature buffs and thrill-seekers alike. You can fish, hunt, camp, and hike all over this undisturbed wilderness, just make sure your satellite phone is nearby.
