Introduction to Cicerone Guidebooks
Cicerone printed their first guidebook around the same time when Sherpa Expeditions was running some of their first walking holidays back in the early ‘70s. Based in Cumbria, the team at Cicerone find themselves right between two of England’s most famous national parks: Lake District National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park. We believe that this makes them true experts on walks like the Cumbrian Way.
Each of their books came about from extensive desk & field research by expert authors and we believe that this passion shows in the publications. With maps and notes from the Sherpa Expeditions team, the Cicerone books form the perfect accompaniment for some of our walking holidays in England, Scotland, Italy and Switzerland.

What Sherpa Expeditions Say
“I like about the Cicerone guidebooks their compact size, durable nature (some have plastic covers), and the range of stuff they cover. I particularly like the little guides they do to things like First Aid and Wild Flowers.” – John, Sherpa Expeditions team
