A book to 20 classic trekking routes in the Alps. Exploring the best trekking areas, outline descriptions and photographs illustrate the classics such as the Tour of Mont Blanc, and Chamonix to Zermatt, as well a number of trekking routes in Slovenia, the Italian Dolomites, the French Alps, Austrian Alps and Swiss Alps. Ideal for inspiration.

Trekking in the Alps is immensely satisfying. The physical challenge is part of it, but so too is the sense of achievement as you get to the top of a lofty pass that may have taken several hours to reach. Then there are the views, the ever-changing panoramas and the distant horizon adorned with peaks and ridges that lures you on day after day.

Edited by Alpine specialist Kev Reynolds, and written by a team of eight experienced authors, writers and guides bringing these classic treks to life. This compilation of the best walking in the Alps looks at each trek in turn, discovering what makes them special, and how to choose your next trekking holiday.
