Travel guides written by travellers for travellers

Since 1991 we've been publishing a select list of practical guidebooks written by travellers for travellers. Trailblazer authors have a voice and these books are opinionated. They tell it like it is – bad as well as good.

We've concentrated on providing readers with information on routes as we believe the interest can be as much in the getting there as in the final destination. The range now includes adventure travel guides, rail guides, worldwide trekking guides and British walking guides. Take a look at our booklist and be inspired! 

Some of our new editions and new books for 2017 include:

Morocco Overland

 Morocco Overland 3 is the full-colour route guide to exploring southern Morocco’s spectacular landscapes, from the snow-clad Atlas to the dunes of the Saharan fringe.
