LONDON (9 February 2012) — The eighth issue of the 180-page National Geographic Traveller (UK) Mar/Apr 2012 issue has hit the newsstands, along with a FREE Photography Supplement showcasing the winners of our 2012 Competition.


Cover Story: 45 European City Breaks — A tour of Europe through the eyes of our travel experts, seeing each city from a different perspective, whether it’s the architecture of Nimes, a gourmet tour of San Sebastian, Berlin’s nightlife or Stockholm’s fashionistas – we offer up these and a further 41 ways to discover a city with a purpose.

Destinations: Follow the river on the Peruvian Amazon; let the locals guide you in Barbados; discover the still unspoilt charm of Bulgaria; take a long weekend in the Channel Islands; or test out our top 10 Dives. Finally, take a pictorial tour of Iceland’s magnificent landscapes.

Cities: Finnish finesse in Helsinki; and Rio de Janeiro’s city and beach beauty unveiled.

Smart Traveller: Live like a local in Singapore, Copenhagen’s Michelin-star gourmet cuisine and discover our top – not so pricey –choices for Rome hotels.

Interview: Joanna Lumley on travel, campaigning and being absolutely fabulous.

Travel Talk: Ask the experts about your travel dilemmas: can you visit North Korea?, European cities with the best access for wheelchair users and spotlighting credit card surcharges.

Real Life: We ask if you can make money from running a travel blog in a special report and take a look at how travel can bring education (and history) to life.

National Geographic Traveler (USA) is the world’s most widely read travel magazine, created in 1984. 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. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel and stresses inquisitive, not acquisitive, trips. It employs storytelling and outstanding photography to inspire readers to pick up and go, eschewing 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.
