If you would like Happy Hiker to have a link to your site, please email your request. Please give clear information about the url to which you want happyhiker.co.uk to link and a description you would like. New categories will be created as appropriate. There is no charge, all I ask is a reciprocal link and that the link is related to walking. Reciprocal links are periodically checked for continuity.

I do not accept what amount to free advertising links from commercial companies as happyhiker.co.uk would then simply become one more directory.

Some links are included on a no obligation basis but only where these relate to general, useful information (such as National Parks) or to safety, non profit making or charitable organisations related to walking.

Vague non specific requests will be deleted.

Links should now be https:// not just http:// in the interests of security for all.

The email address for links is:

If you find any links have become inoperative or do not take you where you expect, please let me know.
