It’s the perfect time to ditch the city and set out on an adventure, and our April 2018 issue on The Great Outdoors will convince you to do just that.

While the gold rush is long over, it’s the call of the wild that will draw you to the YUKON, CANADA, and who knows, you might just get your hands dirty with gold dust! Get ready to embrace nature in all its raw glory in QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA. Let your inner adventure junkie reign supreme, as we give you the lowdown on where you can ride waves and scale new heights in our GREAT INDIAN OUTDOORS feature. If you’re still unsure about what to do,  SWITZERLAND will have you spoilt for choice, letting you pick from a blissful farm experience, snowy slopes and sandy shores. In case you really want to take it up a notch, take a walk with the Maasai in KENYA. It’s sure to leave you with a whole new understanding of adventure.

Looking for something closer home? Our Easy Trips section has you covered. Round up the squad and set out on a road trip from TRIVANDRUM to KANYAKUMARI. Indulge in some long overdue ‘me’ time in BHIMTAL, UTTARAKHAND. Sink your toes into the sand, as you chase sunsets in GANPATIPULE, MAHARASHTRA. Let a canopy of trees shield you from the sun, as you venture out in COONOOR, TAMIL NADU. And, if your vacation agenda involves spending quality time with your family, KUNDAPUR, KARNATAKA is where you should be.

PLUS: As always, we’ve got easy-to-tear-fold-and-carry Mini Guides – enjoy the spruced up public places set against old-world wonders in MOSCOW, RUSSIA, beat the heat and binge on momos in GANGTOK, SIKKIM, and find out how to make the most of a short stay in AMMAN, JORDAN.
