Hiking right across the Alps

On foot through the Alps: The Via Alpina connects all eight Alpine states as well as the Adriatic coast with the bay of Monaco.

On foot through the Alps: The Via Alpina connects all eight Alpine states as well as the Adriatic coast with the bay of Monaco.

The recently published book Via Alpina - 2500 kilometres from one coast to another (Via Alpina - 2'500 kilomètres d'une mer à l'autre) recounts the adventure of crossing the entire Alpine range. In 2007 Vincent Tornay followed the Via Alpina Red Trail for a total of 119 days in search of the people and landscapes that make up the Alps of today. He covered 2500 km and 124,000 metres of difference in altitude as he hiked through the eight Alpine states, from the Adriatic coastline to Monaco.
The result is a richly illustrated book featuring 13 massifs such as the Triglav, the Bernina and the Queyras. Stages of several days in the massifs are featured in detail with map excerpts and descriptions. The book, which is published in French, also provides background information on landscapes as well as the Alpine fauna.Publication available at www.via-alpina.org/en/article/86 (de/fr/it/en)
