LONDON (1 December 2022) — The Jan/Feb issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this issue focuses on the wild side of New Zealand. From e-biking through ancient forests, hiking across glaciers and exploring the original adventure centre, Queenstown, to trekking revered volcanic peaks and caving with glow worms, there’s an adventure to suit everyone in this natural playground.

This issue also comes with a cruise guide, which takes to the waters of the Peruvian Amazon, goes polar bear-spotting in Svalbard, navigates the floating villages of Vietnam’s Lan Ha Bay and spends a long weekend on France’s Canal du Midi.
