Welcome to a special backpacking competition.
It's the time of year when we start thinking about a longer trip. Perhaps you want to go trekking from Munich to Venice or be one of the first to complete the brand new Snowdonia Way? Of course we have an excellent range of walking and trekking guidebooks but perhaps you need a rucksack? Luckily our friends at Osprey are offering you the chance to win a top of the range backpack. We'll throw in some books too but we are also giving you 25% discount on any guidebook until the end of February - just use the code BPSPECIAL at the checkout. If you need help with your planning, or simply some inspiration, there's lots to read at Cicerone Extra and here on the blog
