This book describes just 100 walks out of the many thousands possible in the Alps, with carefully chosen mountain huts providing the focus for each walk.
With a geographical span that ranges from the Maritime Alps of southern France to the Julians of Slovenia, the routes include Italy's Gran Paradiso, various regions of Austria, the Bernese Oberland and the bizarre towers of the Dolomites of South Tirol. Three new routes and huts in this new edition provide a better balance to the collection. Each day-walk and its associated mountain hut has been especially selected to show the amazing diversity of this wonderful mountain chain.
There are walks to suit every taste: gentle and undemanding, long and tough, and everything in between. While most can be tackled in a day, some may require an overnight stay in the hut, and some suggestions are made for multi-day tours.
