About this book

This popular guidebook by Alpine expert Kev Reynolds describes 100 routes to suit Alpine walkers of all abilities, with suggestions for some hut-to-hut tours. The routes are grouped, first under the individual country, and covers France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. Then arranged by specific Alpine districts enabling you to put together your own tour through this wonderful mountain chain. There are walks here to suit every taste and ability: from gentle and undemanding to long and tough, as well as all varieties of difficulty in-between. There are huts to suit every taste, too, from unmanned shelters to mountain inns with hot showers and restaurant service. Most of the routes avoid any climbing of a technical nature, beyond the odd scramble aided by a fixed rope. Notes on hut etiquette, what to take and an English-French-German-Italian glossary are also included to help trekkers get the most out of their time in the Alps.
