Rockfax Advertising

Accommodation Advertising on the Web Site

For a number of years we have offered accommodation adverts to people with houses, villas, bunkhouses and apartments in areas covered by our guidebooks. These have been very successful and most of our advertisers have come back year after year to renew. The bonus of advertising to a climber audience is that they tend to travel at times when other people don’t hence they are a valuable market in the ‘low season’ for accommodation.

Our Accommodation Listings - These consist of pages covering accommodation in the various areas covered by Rockfax guidebooks. Each listing appears on a general area page, plus it has its own page for a more extensive details.
