Per Alpes - Discovering the Alps in 20 circular walks

PER ALPES - Discovering the Alps in 20 circular walks

Per Alpes contains lots of useful information for discovering, on foot and by public transport, the great variety of landscapes as well as local cultural particularities of the Alps.

Such is the title of the hiking guide that has just been published by the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention. It showcases and describes 20 selected trekking routes across the alpine arc, touching on all the alpine states that are part of the Alpine Convention. By presenting the Alps as a tourist destination that goes beyond the national borders of the individual countries this book contributes in its way towards implementing the Alpine Convention's protocol on tourism.
The trekking itineraries take in some of the most popular mountain massifs such as the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, the Monte Rosa, the Grossglockner, the Triglav and the Zugspitze. They also include circular tours of less well known mountains such as the Grosser Litzner, the Civetta, the Monviso and the Maritime Alps.
The book is available free of charge in all four languages of the Alps and in English www.alpconv.org or from info@alpconv.org.
