Horizons Archive Search

Search within several hundred PDF archived Horizons articles.

A new FREE service to all visitors to the IOL website.

Horizons magazine (and its predecessors) has been a source of information, guidance, inspiration and debate since the 1980s. It has published several hundred articles. You can now search the Horizons PDF archive (below) for specific authors, article titles, topics, themes, content etc, and download them for free.


For a general search use key words. You can also make your search more specific; for example, to search for the article titled Adventure in a Bun use inverted commas; like this: "Adventure in a Bun". Or you can search for a particular author.

Once you have identified an article that you are looking for you can download it. Articles are available currently for Horizons issues No. 27 until up to one year ago.

Articles going back to the first issues of "Adventure Education" in the 1980s are available only for photocopying or hard copy purchase.

To download articles published within the last year you need to be an IOL member and logged into the IOL website in the IOL Members Horizons Archive area.
