NGT (UK) November 2021 issue

LONDON (7 October 2021) — The November issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month casts new light on Rome, one of Europe’s most alluring cities. History is etched deep into the marble bones of the Eternal City, but this is still a living, breathing capital, with its feet in the present and its eyes on the future. Set off into its distinctive neighbourhoods and see once-forgotten districts now revitalised, age-old recipes carefully maintained and ancient landmarks restored for the modern age.

Also in this issue, National Geographic Traveller announces the winners of its prestigious Photography Competition 2021, sponsored by Nikon. We reveal the stellar shots that most impressed our expert judges across six categories.


Alaska: With polar bears and austere Arctic landscapes, ‘the roof of America’ offers a truly wild escape.
Burgundy: Spiritual tales meet world-class wines on a drive through France’s verdant heart.
Tajikistan: Green initiatives are bringing new opportunities to the wild and remote Pamir Mountains.
Buenos Aires: The hot-blooded Argentine capital is reinventing itself, while preserving its historic glamour.
Jersey: Discover surf spots, markets and Portuguese culture in the biggest of the Channel Islands.
Cambodia: Revived Khmer dishes and vibrant street eats in the new star of Southeast Asian cuisine.
Maldives: From private villas to honeymoon escapes, the ultimate hotel guide to the archipelago.

Smart Traveller: New openings in Glasgow as it gears up for COP26; the best experiences in the Swiss Alps; Cornwall’s 150-mile West Kernow Way cycle route; UK experiences for children featuring some of fiction’s most beloved characters; the best hotel options in Tampa, Florida; a taste of Gujarat with author Vina Patel; what not to miss in Ghent; and a guide to St Davids, Britain’s smallest city.

Notes from an author: Patrick Nunn on Fiji.
Meet the adventurer: Pilot and aerial photographer Garrett Fisher on shooting the Alps.

Travel Geeks: Ask the Experts has advice on where to head for a small group ski trip this season; truffle-hunting courses in the UK; discovering a different side to Lanzarote in the winter; and what to look for when booking travel Covid-19 tests. Meanwhile, the infographic charts firework celebrations across the world, and Hot Topic asks whether we should tax frequent flyers to reduce emissions.
