Cicerone; Literature Partner

We can give you the confidence to explore the world!

Cicerone are publishers of nearly 400 award-winning guidebooks for walking, trekking, cycling, mountaineering and trail running. We provide inspiration, and excellent information for you to enjoy your next adventure!


2019 is Cicerone’s 50th anniversary, a testament to the quality of the guides, and the continuing trust that our enthusiastic users place in the guidebooks.

Cicerone guidebooks are pocket-sized, clear and detailed, regularly updated and well designed for practical use. Written by experts in their subject, they are used, abused and enjoyed by mountain leaders, groups and enthusiasts throughout the world.

Everything we publish is aimed at helping people have a great time outdoors. From the Himalayas to Hampshire, we have a vast array of routes and ideas; there are guides with collections of short walks, National Trails and other long-distance paths in the British Isles, trekking guides to the Pyrenees, Alps and Himalaya, cycle touring and mountain biking guides, winter climbing and ski-touring guides and literature for armchair adventuring.

Our books are designed to help you discover hidden delights throughout the UK, Europe and far-flung areas of the world. We are market leaders in international trekking guides, and have the most comprehensive range of titles to the Alps available in the English language.

While many of our titles such as the Tour of Mont Blanc are now in their fifth or sixth editions, new guides to exciting and emerging destinations are published regularly. Among our most recent and forthcoming publications are guides to Trekking in Tajikistan, Walks and Scrambles in the Moroccan Anti Atlas, The Wild Atlantic Way, Innsbruck Mountain Adventures, the Karnischer Höhenweg, Walking and Trekking in the Japan Alps and Japan’s Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage.

We are proud to be the Adventure Travel Show’s official Literature partner, offering a series of Trekking Workshops and expert speakers to inspire your next adventure.
