A-Z Adventure Atlases, have the accuracy and quality of OS 1:25000 mapping and are indexed within a single book, making them the perfect companion for walkers, off-road cyclists, horse riders and anyone wishing to explore this beautiful landscape.
The A-Z Adventure Atlases are an innovative concept that utilises Ordnance Survey 1:25000 mapping in a book format, making it convenient and easy to use while outside. All Adventure Atlases are the same size as the standard folded OS map (240mm x 134mm) and fit in a standard map case. 1:25000 mapping is Ordnance Survey's most detailed scale of 1:25 000, showing public rights of way, open access land, national parks, tourist information, car parks, public houses and camping and caravan sites.
Unlike the original OS sheets, these A-Z Adventure Atlases include a comprehensive index to towns, villages, hamlets and locations, natural features, nature reserves, car parks and youth hostels, making them quick and easy to use. Each index entry has a page reference and a six figure National Grid Reference.
At a book size of 240mm x 134mm it is the same size as a standard OS Explorer map when closed.
What our customers are saying.

‘They’re fantastic, I love the index and the book format. I wish I’d known about them before’. – Mr & Mrs Kay, June 2016
‘I just wanted to thank A to Z for the range of walking maps, which I have found so useful. I buy one every time I stop at a motorway services. I used The Ridgeway book this spring and found it very user-friendly in a world where everyone seems to be looking at a phone and not a map’. – Simon E, January 2016
‘I have just finished the Pennine Way and the books are amazing!!! I never got lost and they are easy to transport and use’. – Katharine, August 2015
Weatherproof Map case
It's a long standing problem that walkers have to deal with – even if you set off with the bluest of skies above you, chances are in the UK that at some point in the day rain will make an unwelcome arrival. We know that this can really hinder your ability to continue reading your map when you’re out and about, and so we’ve come up with a way to keep your Adventure Atlas safe and dry for when things get a little wet!
Standing at 255mm tall with a width of 135mm folded / 280mm flat, this made to measure Adventure Atlas weatherproof case sits flush around the product unlike some other cumbersome, less practical cases meaning it easily fits into a jacket pocket. The case envelops the map in a weatherproof jacket allowing you to see the pages clearly without fear of water damage. Its Velcro sealing mechanism allows easy access to the atlas even when wearing the thickest of winter gloves.
A neck lanyard (available separately) can also be attached to the sturdy lanyard tab for those who prefer to have their map to hand instead of stored in a rucksack or pocket.
These cases are designed to allow the clear visibility of the map should wet weather arrive and are made of soft feel light weight 500 micron thickness plastic. They also fit Ordnance Survey maps, so whichever walking journey you decide to embark on next, don’t leave home without one!
