LONDON (7 October 2011) — The sixth issue of the 180-page National Geographic Traveller (UK) Nov/Dec 2011 issue is now available on the newsstands, once again packed full of real life traveller tales and destination inspiration for you to read — and get up and go.

Destinations — far & away: The raw and rugged side of New Zealand; an encounter with the tribes of Colombia; discovering the authentic Sri Lanka and the resorts of the Maldives.

Destinations — closer to home: From Guimaraes and Evora to Alcacer do Sal, there’s a wealth of Portugal beyond the Algarve; see daily life in Cairo in our stunning photo-feature; and head north of the Arctic Circle to explore Norway’s extremes.

Cities: The many faces of Prague and its allure though the ages; and Athens’ dysfunctional but fascinating personality.

Smart Traveller: Live like a local in New York, explore the distinct cuisine of Alicante and discover our top choices for Amsterdam hotels.

Interview: An insight into Bjork’s mad, mad world and her latest project.

Travel Talk: Ask the experts about your travel dilemmas: the best options for a first-timer to the Amazon, what to do if your tour operator collapses and the low-down on river cruising.

Real Life: How ‘couch surfing’ is taking off worldwide and why you’re never too old for that gap year…

National Geographic Traveler (USA) is the world’s most widely read travel magazine. It championed sustainable travel before it was cool and, eight times annually, celebrates journeys that are about place, experience, culture, authenticity, living like the locals and great photography.

And, with the theme of “All Travel, All the Time,” it eschews fashion and fluff in favour of articles that offer a strong sense of place, inspiring narratives that make readers take trips, and solid service information to help them plan those trips.
