Ultimate Record Breaking

The World’s Largest, Highest and Most Extreme Places.
By Samantha Wilson.

Since tweeted-coated, leather-booted intrepid explorers of yesteryear first embarked on journeys into the true unknown, world exploration has driven a passion within us.

In a world bursting with incredible and alluring destinations, visiting the largest, oldest, highest or most extreme places – those that are truly and factually unsurpassable –provides us with a wonderful sense of achievement and helps us make sense of our place in this big old world.

Take a unique journey of discovery to 100 of Earth’s record breaking places, from swimming in the deepest lake to stepping foot on the largest sand island or spending a night in the largest ice hotel. Find out exactly where the lowest point on dry land, the furthest point from the sea or the oldest restaurant is and uncover astounding world facts that will both ignite your wanderlust and give you the ultimate bucket list.


Samantha Wilson is a long- time travel writer and author whose journeys have taken her from the northern lights of the arctic to the wilds of Patagonia and the remote islands of Palau. She has inter-railed through Europe, canoed the Swedish lakes and camel-trekked the North African deserts. When she’s not researching her next book she lives in the British countryside with her husband and far too many pets.
