With illustrated walks ranging from short strolls to multi-day traverses, this guide explores both highlights and little-visited places, and plenty of panoramic peaks. The excellent rifugi network allows walkers to rest overnight at high altitudes as well as feast on local gastronomic specialties. This brand new full-colour edition also includes a detailed description of the rewarding 12-stage Alta Via 2 that crosses the southern Valle d'Aosta, passing beneath the foot of Mont Blanc to culminate at Courmayeur. It also includes full details of local transport and accommodation.
A little over 100 years after Alpine pioneers George Yeld and Rev. W.A.B. Coolidge compiled their celebrated guide "The Mountains of Cogne", this detailed book retraces some of their itineraries. It opens up a wonderful world of rugged mountains and breathtaking valleys densely populated with an extraordinary variety of wildlife. First and foremost of these is the magnificent ibex, saved from extinction by the establishment of a Royal Game Reserve in the 19th century. The Gran Paradiso National Park inherited 450kms of tracks from that period, a marvellous benefit for present-day visitors.
