…as summer sets in, we’re offering a fine array of excuses to step outside. In Northern Italy, our Great Escape charts a course between the open expanses of Lake Como and the timeworn canalside palaces of Venice (p39). Swapping gondolas for dust-shrouded 4x4s, we go in search of gold rush legends and exotic beasts in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province (p52). Four hikes carry us between groves of date palms and black-sand beaches on the most mysterious island in the Canaries, La Gomera (p68). And rounding our theme off, we recommend 15 British outdoor activities, topped in my personal wish-list by snoozing in a cosy cabin in the woods of Pembrokeshire (p88). Subscribe!

LONELY PLANET BEER This month, we’re raising a special toast to our new Beer Trails book (p80) – with our very own brew. An international IPA, the limited edition Travel Notes was made with breweries in Leeds and California, using five ingredients from five continents. Find the citrusy number in 20 countries worldwide (lptravel.to/travelnotes). EASEL DOES IT Souvenir-hunting is not usually part of the brief for our writers, but on a trip to Lake Como (p39), Rory Goulding gained a surprise memento thanks to an art class led by Abele Vadacca (pictured). ‘He doesn’t normally paint with a photographer recording every brushstroke,’ says Rory. ‘To take home something that captures this moment is very special.’ THIS MONTH’S COVER Gondolas and churches are recurring sights in Venice. Our newsstand cover shows the boats under blue tarpaulins,…

SEVENTY ISLANDS, PALAU From out of the blue My wife and I spent two weeks in Palau, hiking, visiting monoliths and diving with manta rays and sharks. I took this shot on board a small Cessna plane above the Seventy Islands, a small island group in the Rock Islands archipelago. As they’re off limits to visitors, the Seventy Islands can only be seen from the air. We waited five days for clear skies, before flying up and seeing these unbelievable views of bright-blue waters dotted with wrecks, mushroom-like islands and famous diving sites. It was the high point of our amazing trip, and a summary of all the places we’d been. I still get goosebumps looking at this picture. ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA Jolly brolly I visited Antigua on my first trip to Central America, travelling alone…

NEW FLIGHT It may have a reputation as one of the world’s priciest cities, but Singapore is about to become a lot more affordable for British travellers, thanks to the launch of a new route from low-cost carrier Norwegian. From late September, a one-way flight from Gatwick starts at only £180 (norwegian.com). On touchdown, there are plenty of ways to make your Singapore dollar go further, says Lonely Planet destination editor Dora Ball. ‘Some of Singapore’s most defining experiences are completely free: exploring the temples and markets of Chinatown and Little India, taking in the skyline from the forest walkway of the Southern Ridges, and enjoying the sound-and-light show in the Gardens by the Bay (pictured).’ On the rails Fans of combining luxury and rolling stock rejoice: there are two new sleeper trains…

something to declare: sometimes the old ways are the best

“I was once ‘leading’ a walk somewhere in southern England. I say ‘leading’; people were following, but I wasn’t entirely sure where we were going. If there was a sense of purpose, it was to be found in the ground itself; the way it tipped and tended, the scoring and bunching of footways at junctions. If there was a leader, it was the land. We were on the South Downs Way, heading inland. We couldn’t really have gone wrong, but somehow managed to give ourselves a fair intimation of lostness. Being mapless helped. When the trees ended and the ground rose to give us a sighting of not one but two churches, someone (not me, I swear) started spouting about how we were on a ley line and would be…

1. ZAGREB, CROATIA Travellers to Croatia tend to head straight for the coastline, but its booming inland capital shouldn’t be overlooked. Zagreb is both edgy and cosmopolitan, with a heady mix of Brutalist architecture and Austro-Hungarian squares. Street art adorns the city, and new galleries are opening at an ambitious pace. To top it all off, Zagreb is home to a blossoming craft beer scene, such as at Garden Brewery (pictured). 2. GOTLAND, SWEDEN Gotland has the most sunshine and highest density of historical sites in Sweden and more restaurants per capita in Unesco-listed Visby than any other Swedish city. This ancient Baltic island also has breathtaking scenery, with pastoral countryside, mysterious forests, time-warped fishing villages and tranquil sandy beaches, perfect for cycling between. 3. GALICIA, SPAIN Galicia is a unique scenic-gastronomic-cultural cocktail that is…
