Productomschrijving

This guidebook has route descriptions for 100 day walks to suit alpine walkers of all abilities, with suggestions for some hut-to-hut tours. These routes take you through breathtaking scenery in the Maritime Alps, Julian Alps, Gran Paradiso, the Turnitzer Alps, Bernese Oberland, the Kitzbuheler Alps and the Dolomites of South Tirol.

This popular guidebook by expert Kev Reynolds describes 100 day walks focusing on the mountain huts of the Alps. With walks in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Slovenia, there are routes to suit every taste - from gentle and undemanding to long and tough, as well as all varieties of difficulty in between.

What they have in common is a visit to a hut, each with its own character. Some walks are perfect for lunch at a hut before a return to the valley base, others involve an overnight stay at a hut. In a few cases, a short hut-to-hut tour is suggested.

The routes are grouped by country and by specific Alpine district. 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.

Updates

Readers planning to visit the Monte Rosa Hut above Zermatt, described as Walk 28 in 100 Hut Walks in the Alps, are warned that as a result of climate change the route as described is no longer valid. Descent onto the Gorner glacier is now by way of near-vertical ladders, and the hike over the glacier crosses numerous widening crevasses. Unless experienced and adequately equipped for glacier travel the Zermatt website (www.zermatt.ch) recommends all potential walkers on this route to hire a mountain guide.
