We hope you are all staying safe and well during this unprecedented time of crisis. Here at Cicerone, we have decided that the best course of action for Cicerone, and for all the staff, is to put the company into a level of hibernation for a while.

Our website will remain operational and the team at our warehouse is doing its best to keep a service running, but please be patient if books take longer to arrive. Fulfilment of orders for physical books continues at out warehouse, however it may get interrupted if they are forced to close their doors. If this happens it will be clear and our books will be safe, and ready for you when the time is right.

E-books will remain available on our website and other providers, as will Kindle versions through Amazon. Please only buy e-books from our site if you are confident about how to download them onto a device, as we are unlikely to be able to respond to lengthy queries of this nature for the time being. There are video clips to help if you are unsure.

If you have queries, messages or any other communication, our first preference would be for you to contact us by e-mail. If you phone then you will receive an answerphone message. This will be forwarded to one of our directors who will still be working, but please be patient if it takes us slightly longer to answer your calls or emails.

Meanwhile all our lives have been completely disrupted and we are having to be creative about how to enjoy the outdoors – mainly indoors. We’re doing everything we can to remain positive, and there are literally hundreds of articles on Cicerone Extra, enough to keep the most avid reader engaged for a while.

We know your next outdoors walking, cycling or trekking adventure is just a dream for now butat some point you might want to take some time to plan for better times, whenever that may be. A free sample walk for all our books can be downloaded from our website so you can browse as many as you like for free. You can find these at the bottom of each book page.

We wish you all the best at this difficult time. Thank you for your wonderful loyalty and support, and we look forward to a brighter future when we can all go out again.

Stay safe and stay in touch.
