Tell us your story

Over the past few years, many of you have sent in emails telling us about your great days out using a Cicerone guidebook, and we’d love to hear more.

We have a great team of authors who write our guides, but sometime it’s hard to beat stories written by the users of our guides. We’re looking for interesting and informative stories of great days out using a Cicerone guidebook, whether it was a short stroll, bike ride, winter climb or an epic long-distance trail.

We will give the writer of each each story we use a 30% discount off their next order placed on the Cicerone website. So, what are you waiting for...

Tips for your story*

Include a brief description of your route, and why you choose it.

Let us know which Cicerone guide you used.

Include a couple of inspirational photographs to illustrate your story.
