Intrepid globetrotters and "stay-cationers" alike will agree that "Great Adventures" captures experiences of a lifetime. In his introduction, Ben Fogle artfully describes the adrenaline rush achieved by each journey and, from there, the reader hurdles through hundreds of pages of breathtaking text and photos of some of the world's most beautiful, dangerous and remote spots.

Well organized and easy to follow, the book features chapters on hiking, diving, biking, "above and below" (canyons and caves), climbing, ice and snow treks, animals, water, and drives. The description of each adventure includes "essential experiences," planning details, armchair traveller recommendations and, of course, a map.

This fun and beautiful book deserves to be left out, passed around among guests and savoured over and over.
