For Explorers Everywhere

We’ve been guiding travel for almost 50 years and we’ve learned that the best travel is about putting yourself out there. It’s about leaving behind the everyday, and we believe that travel is for everyone.

We offer the world’s richest travel advice and guidance, informed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic contributors. Destination content inspiring incredible experiences is what we do, both digitally and via our iconic guidebooks and other titles. We hope you’ll join us on this journey.

In 2020, Lonely Planet was acquired by Red Ventures.

Since then, we’ve been working hard to meet the needs of travelers as they re-engage with the world online and through our iconic books - helping more people discover and decide where they’ll go, how they’ll get there, and what to do when they arrive.
