Lonely Planet’s Natural World
Discover how and where to reconnect with nature
We all know that time spent in nature is good for us. But why? And where should we go to reconnect with it? Lonely Planet’s beautiful and inspiring Natural World explores five environments – forests, rivers, mountains, coasts and deserts – and explains how and why our brains and bodies benefit from being in nature, as well as the importance of valuing and protecting all the ecosystems across our planet. From Canada’s untamed Great Bear Rainforest to the dramatic Dolomites of Italy, unearth 50 destinations where you can be at one with the natural world.
Chapters cover five stunning environments Forests Rivers & Waterways Mountains Coasts & Seas Deserts & Plains
Reconnect with nature
Recent scientific research is establishing why it is that being in nature has such a beneficial effect on us but we don’t need scientists to tell us that going for a walk, climbing a mountain or swimming in silky wild waters feels great.
Travel through coasts, mountains, forests, rivers and deserts
For each environment, we suggest ten amazing places to explore further, places where you can reconnect with nature.
The influence of nature
Throughout the book’s five chapters we learn about the writers and artists whose work has been shaped by the natural world, combined with the geography and history of each environment.
Expert writers introduce each environment and consider some of their scientific, cultural and historic background:
