74 pages of inspired holiday ideas for you and yours

LONDON (7 December 2016) — The special issue of National Geographic Traveller – Family is available now on UK newsstands, focusing on innovative travel ideas for 2016.

Inside this issue

Cover story: 13 things to do before you’re 13 National Geographic Traveller – Family asked 13 well-travelled teens and their families to talk about the trips that made their childhood truly special.

Teens can be difficult to impress but this gang were genuinely excited to reveal their ‘must-do’ adventures: the ultimate tried-and-tested pre-teen bucket list, from riding with huskies in Finland to diving with sharks in Indonesia (yes, really).

Also in this issue:

• The real Greek – the Ionian Islands’ glorious villas, hidden beaches and even more hidden backcountry roads.
• Singapore – have an Asian adventure in this easy-going yet exotic city, a great introduction to the East.
• Island high – nowhere instils a sense of wonder quite like Bali, from its tiered paddy fields to cheeky monkeys, thatched eco-retreats, waterfalls, colourful textiles and ancient temples.
• Choo choo – along the banks of the Danube. Let the train take the strain out of exploring the culture-rich cities of Vienna and Budapest, with a pit stop in Milan.
• Book it now – from dazzling Dutch theme park Efteling to an action-packed watery holiday in the mountains, rivers and bays of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, plus the best of North Cornwall.
• Great games – pull-out kids’ activities, with brain teasers and puzzles to take on the road.
• Tried & Tested – overnight at London’s Natural History Museum; on safari in Kent.
• Kit ’n’ Kaboodle – this season’s top travel gadgets, toys, books, luggage and apps, for kids.
• Travel Dad – our columnist finds it’s no holiday entertaining his enigma of a daughter.
• Survival Guide – where to summer in the Alps; the top ski schools with a difference.

PLUS a WOW competition: Win a seven-day family trip for four to France with Crystal Ski Holidays.
