Synopsis:

This beautiful hardback takes the reader on 75 of the most amazing adventures on the planet. From the ultimate challenge of climbing Mount Everest to less strenuous but equally inspiring experiences like kayaking with orcas in Canada and cycling Vietnam's backroads, this is the definitive companion to the world's most spectacular adventures.

With stunning photographs, sumptuous descriptions and practical information, this inspirational coffee table book will delight armchair explorers and bone fide adventurers alike.

'While it is lovely to linger over the stunning photos, there is a lot more to this sumptuously designed title - a follow-up to Great Journeys - than meets the eye? This is a perfect gift for the traveller in your life who might be tempted to ride the Tour de France's high passes or paraglide from Mont Blanc's pearly summit.' Sydney Morning Herald

'Whether you're active or just love reading about action, there's something here for everyone.' Australian Associated Press

'If you liked Lonely Planet's Great Journeys, you'll love the next in the series - Great Adventures? Even if you're not planning a trip it's great for armchair travelling.' The Times

'Lonely Planet. It's on everyone's bookshelves; it's in every traveller's hands. It's on mobile phones. It's on the Internet. It's everywhere, and it's telling entire generations of people how to travel the world.' - Fairfax Media (Australia)

Review: "The photographs are stunning, and each chapter includes several sidebars of information, a map and an array of practical planning tips. Just looking at the book alone makes you want to think about possibly moving beyond yourown comfort level..." (Amsterdam News 2013-09-26)

"With gorgeous photos, practical information and armchair travel suggestions, the travel guide publisher prepares readers for an adventure." (Battle Creek Enquirer 2013-05-24)

It's all about ice peaks, underwater caves, challenging bicycling trips, and natural beauty: chapters are packed with lovely images and paired with exciting text, making for an outstandingsurvey highly recommended for any adventure travel holding." (Midwest Book Review)

"Great Adventures is a handsome 320-page coffee-table book, filled to bursting with stunning photographs of oceans, deserts, ancient cities, and,especially, perilous mountain overhangs, beneath which there always looms a bottomless abyss. The two-page opening spread of a craggy overlook in the French Alps will leave acrophobics reeling in panic." (Perceptive Travel)

"In LonelyPlanet's Great Adventures, the reader is treated to a breathtaking array of travel experiences, illustrated with beautiful photography." (Los Angeles Times 2012-12-12)

Stunning photography leads readers through great outdoor adventures like paragliding from Mont Blanc in France, tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda or perhaps cycling through Nepal. The reader will be enticed to hike, dive, bikeand climb; above the earth, below the oceans, and on top of mountains. This is truly a candy box of adventures of a lifetime. Every endorphin seeking traveler will love this book." (Wicked Good Travel Tips 2012-12-04)
