Wanderlust (magazine) is a British travel magazine, covering adventurous, cultural and special interest travel. It is published ten times a year.
Wanderlust was founded in Windsor, Berkshire in 1993 by Paul Morrison and Lyn Hughes, who had observed the absence of a publication combining their interests in wildlife, activities and cultural insights. Morrison died in December 2004 and Hughes took on the roles of publisher, Managing Director and editor-in-chief. In 2008, the Haymarket Group bought a stake in the business. Hughes is also a director of Songlines, a world music magazine. Regular contributors to Wanderlust include Mark Carwardine, William Gray, Jane Wilson-Howarth, Alastair Humphreys and Simon Reeve.
The annual Wanderlust Photo of the Year competition is the UK’s biggest travel photography competition. Most of the categories are for amateurs, one also being open to professionals.
The annual Wanderlust World Guide Awards for tour guides and tour leaders are supported by The Daily Telegraph. Judges have included Michael Palin, Bill Bryson and Mark Carwardine. Winners since the awards' founding in 2005 have been from Zambia, Romania, Ecuador and Egypt. They receive a Paul Morrison bursary to spend on community projects or furthering their skills.
In 2010, Wanderlust launched its own range of tours, Wanderlust Journeys, focusing on travel writing and photography.
