Take a look at our new site

Over the coming months we’re going to be building up a collection of exclusive articles about all sorts of outdoor activities – walking, mountaineering, cycling and much more. We hope you’ll want to check back next month and every month for a regular dose of fresh air and inspiration.

We’d love you to comment and send us your stories, too. It's all about that little bit extra to share between us.

Ideas for winter walks and gifts

Our Christmas gift Guide has suggestions for great books to read  for the outdoor enthusiasts in the family – or for yourself, also take a look at our larger-format Mountain Ranges books and inspirational books

Christmas gift guide

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

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.
