Trailblazer, UK-based publisher of adventure travel guides for 25 years, brings you the Trailblazer Walking Guide smartphone app, your navigational supplement and companion to our popular line of British Walking Guides.

About Trailblazer Guides: We publish more than 40 travel guides. They include the British walking guides series, trekking guides, rail guides and adventure travel guides. We now publish around a dozen titles a year. Trailblazer authors have a voice. Our authors are travellers first and authors second. We think that a guidebook should inspire the reader to travel and encourage him or her to interact with local people. Our guides are entertaining as well as informative. In the words of one reviewer, Trailblazer guides are examples of: 'Good guides (that) read like a novel and get you packing in no time'. Visit us at trailblazer-guides.com.
