Ideas for winter walks

Here are some great ideas for getting away in our winter overseas guidebook information pages, or dip into some Cicerone-extra articles and Blogs.

The distant Lake District, from the Howgill fells, cumbria

If you're only planning to take a few days away, why not choose a selection of individual downloadable routes, like this one (pictured above) from The Lune Valley and Howgills walkers guide, rather than taking a complete guidebook. If you find you enjoy the area you have visited, you can always buy the whole guidebook for further adventures in the future. Simply 'browse routes' on any one of our book pages on the website.

Schoolboy turned superstar climber

Today we received a letter containing a review of Alan Hinkes' 8000 Metres: Climbing the World's Highest Mountains and it was so lovely that we had to share it with you. "Forty years ago, on a summer's evening, a schoolboy tied onto my rope to climb on a small North York Moors crag before he hitch-hiked back to Northallerton to finish his homework. Read...
