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.
