Swap the hustle and bustle of normal life for the expansive quietness of the world's remotest corners and sacred grounds.

In the modern world, silence has become a rare luxury, yet it has been proven that moments of genuine quiet are essential for our wellbeing. From historic pilgrim routes to exploring the last true wildernesses, travellers are increasingly seeking out opportunities for true quiet reflection.

The Silent Traveller is the definitive guide to travelling for peace and quiet. With 50 carefully selected silent trips to choose from, including natural wilderness adventures, remote island retreats, sacred pilgrim routes and unexpected oases of quiet in urban

areas, there is something for everyone.
