The April 2018 issue of The Great Outdoors is in shops now, and it’s a good’un…
In our April issue, we’re getting ready for spring even though snow still blankets most of our mountains.
James Deboo heads to the Lake District for a packrafting, walking and wild camping adventure inspired by Arthur Ransome’s Swallows & Amazons. Joly Braime experiences some brisk North Sea weather when he walks a five-day section of the England Coast Path. Mountain photographer Alex Nail goes snowshoeing through the Highlands. Paul Beasley ramps up the difficulty when he takes us scrambling in North Wales, and James Urquhart voyages through the Cairngorms.
Meanwhile, there’s the TGO Guide to looking after your kit, all the latest gear innovations from the ISPO trade show, and expert gear reviews from Chris Townsend and Judy Armstrong (this month they are reviewing windshirts and women’s trousers). Finally, we’ve included ten mapped Wild Walks from around the UK.
