Take the adventure with you with this new Travel Edition of the critically acclaimed Atlas of Adventures. Whether you're visiting the penguins of Antarctica, joining the Carnival in Brazil or taking a canoe safari down the Zambezi River, this book brings together more than 100 activities and challenges to inspire adventurers of any age.


Celebrate the great diversity of our planet: with every turn of the page, you'll come across different animals, people and sights unique to each of the locations. Look out for two adventurers in every scene as you travel through the book. Discover with them hundreds of things to spot and learn about.


Each section begins with an infographic map of the region it explores, followed by richly detailed two-page spreads featuring its most fascinating locations. You'll get to go to sleep under the Northern Lights, meet millions of monarch butterflies in the boreal forests of Mexico's volcanic mountains, shower with an elephant in Chiang Mai and go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, among many other amazing adventures.

Interesting facts and figures pepper the scenes. Did you know that London's Big Ben clock bell weighs as much as a small elephant? Or that more than one-third of the world's commercial supply of pineapples comes from Hawaii? A 'Can you find?' page at the back challenges you to explore the pages even deeper by locating the pictured people, animals and things.

This smaller Travel Edition fits easily into suitcases, backpacks and car-seats, making it the perfect guide for budding adventurers.
