Discover a World of Thrilling Outdoor Activities in Lonely Planet’s Atlas of Adventure

  • Written by Laura Hamilton

Don’t just walk on the wild side, but climb, ski, mountain bike, canoe, surf and even skydive with Lonely Planet’s Atlas of Adventure, published this October.

 

Lonely Planet’s Atlas of Adventure is an action-packed showcase of the best outdoor experiences in more than 150 countries across the globe. Featuring inspiring photography, maps, interviews and expert authors, it’s the ultimate introduction to a thrilling new world of adventure.

 

“We tracked down our most adventure-loving experts, wherever they happened to be, and asked them to share their tips for the best places to experience thrilling outdoor activities,” Lonely Planet explains.

 

“This book is the result: an alphabetically ordered romp around the globe, highlighting the best outdoor pursuits you can enjoy in each country,” Lonely Planet says. “We’ll take you climbing in Thailand, mountain biking in America and sailing along the south coast of Britain.”

 

“We’ve included everywhere it’s currently feasible to set your intrepid foot,” Lonely Planet adds, “exploring the less trafficked corners of popular spots and venturing to far-flung places you may never have previously considered visiting.”

 

Lonely Planet devotes 18 pages of its Atlas of Adventure to Australia’s outdoor activities. “From plunging into the azure ocean surrounding the world’s biggest coral reef to hiking through primordial landscapes dating back to Gondwana, adventure is everywhere in Australia,” the book says. “Whatever your adventure poison – be it climbing or kayaking, skiing or surfing, road cycling or mountain biking, trail running or camel trekking – you will find it here, usually in world-class form, and often without too many others around to break your solitude.”
