Many aircraft went down in far out terrain, like the Lockheed Lightning "Glacier Girl", which landed on ice and snow in Greenland;

or the Consolidated "Liberator", which had flown 400 mile out into the desert, where it crashlanded. Touching pictures.

There are quite a few crashed German and Soviet aircraft (or what's left of them) in the area close to the Barents Sea in Finland, Norway and the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Not many people live in that wilderness, so many of the wrecks have been preserved in relatively good condition.
