About this book

Europe's national parks are incredibly diverse, and that is what makes them so special. They protect areas of coast, high-altitude peaks in the Pyrenees and Alps, and even parts of the frozen Arctic, with wildlife ranging from Carpathian squirrels and fin whales to peregrine falcons and polar bears. Setting out to choose Europe's top 60 national parks was no easy task, so we called on our expert writers and well-travelled editors. We asked them to tell us which parks provide the best experiences and why. The final selections were those that offered something truly unique, often an enthralling mixture of stunning natural beauty, incredible wildlife, fulfilling activities, local culture and (occasionally) a compelling history too.

But National Parks of Europe is intended to be more than just a celebration of Europe's top national parks – it's also a practical introduction to each of them. We highlight the best activities and trails, explain how to get there and where to stay, show you the wildlife to watch out for, and suggest itineraries.
