If you're only planning to take a few days away, why not choose a selection of individual downloadable routes, 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.
