TRAILBLAZER             Route guides for the     adventurous traveller

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

Coronavirus impact

We've been hard at work at home getting the new editions of Nick Hill's Ridgeway, Henry Stedman’s Hadrian’s Wall Path, Jim Manthorpe's Pembrokeshire Coast Path and Great Glen WayChris Scott’s Adventure Motorcycling Handbook and our inspirational new title, Andy Bull's  Pilgrim Pathways - 1- to 2- day walks on Britain's ancient sacred ways off to press. They're all now in stock and our new guides to the London Outer Orbital Path (LOOP) and Iceland Hiking have just arrived. 

We're now out on the footpaths of Britain again and with mass vaccination underway worldwide, it won't be long before the world starts to return to normal and we can hit the trails of Nepal, the back roads of Morocco and the rails in Russia and Japan again.
