About this book

From the high-level route across the Pyrenees to the scenic Kerry Way in Ireland, from a descent through the Samaria Gorge in Crete to an ascent of Helvellyn in the Lake District, this book identifies the greatest walks in Europe - twelve of the best long-distance walks (taking from four to fifteen days to complete) and twelve extraordinary day walks.

Among the long-distance walks are the incomparable GR20 in Corsica - a coast-to-coast journey through jagged peaks and deep, forested valleys, the ancient Ridgeway across English downland, the Jungfrau Horseshoe in Austria, which visits the best viewpoints of the Bernese Oberland's most famous alpine peaks and the Kungsleden, or Royal Trail, through the Swedish wilderness. Short walks include the Snowdon Horseshoe, one of the finest mountain walks in Britain, a walk through the Verdon Gorge in France, Europe's equivalent of the Grand Canyon and an excursion to the Inaccessible Pinnacle on the romantic Isle of Skye in Scotland.

The author describes each route, explaining noteworthy features of all kinds and giving historical and cultural details as well as useful information about maps and statistics, and is completed by spectacular photographs of landscapes and wildlife that capture the walks' spirit and character.
