Luke Waterson

Luke is an award-winning adventure / culinary travel writer and novelist based in the wonderfully wild Welsh mountains. He has contributed to 50+ travel/reference books, besides writing for the BBC, Telegraph, Indy, Guardian, Lonely Planet, Adventure.com, Red Bull Adventure Channel and others.

He writes primarily on hiking and wildernesses, specialising in Britain and the Andes/Amazon. His account of hiking Peru’s next Inca Trail was Latin American Travel Article of the Year in 2019. His novels tend to be set in the wildernesses he likes best (the Amazon rainforest in Roebuck, and the remote 12th-century Welsh countryside in Song Castle).
