LONDON (2 March 2023) — The April issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month focuses on 25 Greek islands, from big-hitters like Crete and Santorini to lesser-known spots including Agistri and Kythera. The country’s isles are known for their idyllic beaches and laidback pace of life, but for travellers willing to explore a little further, clifftop villages, local markets and secret stretches of sand all await.

We also reveal the winners of our annual Photography Competition, with submissions across six categories covering the globe, from the US and Mexico to Greenland and Sierra Leone.

What’s more, this issue comes with a free 100-page Alpine guide. Inside, we celebrate the near-endless choice of summer experiences in the mountains, including outdoor activities, rail routes and city breaks.
