Explore the world from your own home

Experience more than 350 episodes of award-winning travel shows from your own sofa 

With the current restrictions in place due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic many of us have had to put our holiday plans on indefinite hold. But thankfully for avid travellers we can still access epic landscapes and cool cultures across the world right from the comfort of your own sofa.

Travel guide publisher Lonely Planet has recently launched its own premium TV streaming service to transport you from your couch to some of the world’s most amazing destinations.

Presented by experienced and world renowned travellers, Lonely Planet TV features more than 350 episodes of award-winning travel shows delving into an abundance of experiences and locations.  

Speaking about the launch of the service Lonely Planet CEO Luis Cabrera said: ‘Though travel plans may be uncertain for many of us, we’re excited to bring the world into people’s homes and onto their devices via Lonely Planet TV.’

Shows include 18 seasons of the classic travel TV series Globe Trekker, taking viewers on a nostalgic tour of the world including off-the-beaten path destinations as diverse as China and as iconic as the Western USA.

Celebrity hosts also take viewers on a world of inspiring cultures, amazing landscapes and mouth-watering cuisines. Take in a classic American road trip along Route 66 or sample wines in Chianti before exploring the Indian Himalayas.

And for the foodie in you Planet Food serves up the sights, smells, and colourful culinary creations from every corner of the world offering you the chance to make the dishes at home.
