Thrill-seekers and adventurers, rejoice. The August issue of Leisure Group Travel has arrived.

This edition, the Outdoor and Adventure issue, is brimming with stories spotlighting exciting destinations across the globe that are tempting explorers.

Judging by the data, there are plenty of explorers to tempt.

According to statistics from Allied Market Research, the global adventure tourism market was valued at $366 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach $4.6 trillion by 2032. That’s a stuffy way of saying innumerable mountains will be scaled and countless trails will be hiked in the next decade.

Our writer, Heather Dale, taps into this outdoor enthusiasm with a story about adventure trips that will get your blood pumping and unlock your wanderlust.

Great global hiking destinations

LGT also shines a spotlight on excellent Midwestern parks that were created to be explored. Not to be outdone, we also focus on Utah’s picturesque trail systems and Colorado Springs’ stunning natural landscapes, both of which rival any hiking destination on the globe.

This issue is accompanied by the 2023 Wyoming Itinerary Guide, which makes sense, given the number of eye-popping outdoor attractions the Cowboy State claims.

Wyoming is not only home to two of the finest national parks in the country, Yellowstone and Grand Teton, it also sports the legendary Devils Tower National Monument, which attracts more than 500,000 visitors per year.

This guide takes you beyond those popular destinations, giving you in-depth itineraries that cover the entire state, from the top (Sheridan County) to the bottom (Cheyenne). We also make plenty of stops in between, sharing the many reasons Wyoming is one of the most appealing destinations in the country.

So, grab your backpack, slip on your hiking shoes and begin your adventure, with LGT as your trusty guide.

Happy travels,

Jason Paha
