There’s never been a better time to introduce families to authentic travel experiences

National Geographic Traveller - Family Special issue out now
26-page digital ezine sample:

LONDON (11 May 2012) — The new special issue of National Geographic Traveller - Family is available now on UK newsstands, focusing on great adventures for the whole family and top tips on booking your summer holiday.

Cover story: An Awfully Big Adventure highlights active breaks
with all the family — from pre-schoolers to teens — and covers destinations as far afield as the Amazon and as close to home
as Scotland.

Maria Pieri, editor and editorial director, says: “Planning an adventure with the kids can simply mean staying close to home — from the wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands to YHA breaks in Wales. Or it can involve looking further afield — perhaps a cycle trip to the moon (Iceland in this case!), diving in the Red Sea, riding a donkey in Spanish Castille, or kayaking in Croatia.

“There’s never been a better time to introduce families to authentic travel experiences and this issue offers a host of innovative ideas, easy-to-use guides, expert advice and tips from parents.

“Plus, there’s stuff for the kids to get involved with too — from did-you-know? facts to maps and interactive games.”

Also in this issue:

• Go on safari in South Africa
• Self-drive France
• Dive into the Indian Ocean with kids
• Oman with teens
• Self-catering options for Italy
• UK active breaks
• Sleep: Ibiza accommodation ideas
• City guides featuring Amsterdam, Boston and London, plus pull-out kids’ guides
• Real life — discussion topics include: late bookings, summer camps, and families of five or more

PLUS our fabulous competition: Win a seven-night walking holiday for four to Austria with Inntravel.

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. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel and stresses inquisitive, not acquisitive, trips. It employs storytelling and you-are-there photography to inspire readers to pick up and go. 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.
