Guidebook to 30 walks and 3 treks centred on Zagori and Konitsa in mainland Greece. From easy strolls to demanding hikes along remote mountainous traverses, including the rugged peaks of Mt Timfi and Mt Smolikas in the Pindos range, Drakolimni Lake, and the dramatic Vikos Gorge. With background information on architecture, history and wildlife. Zagori in Greece's Northern Pindos National Park is among the last relatively undiscovered and unspoilt hiking destinations in Europe. This guide presents a selection of thirty walks and three short treks showcasing the region's captivating scenery, from dramatic gorges to mystical forests, crystal-clear turquoise rivers, rugged alpine peaks and characterful mountain villages. Routes vary from easy walks on clear paths to strenuous ascents and mountain traverses, meaning that there is something to suit most ambitions and abilities. Clear mapping accompanies the route description, and the introduction to the guide covers all the practicalities, including getting to Zagori, accommodation, equipment, maps and safety. There is also a wealth of information about the region's rich history, architecture, geology, plants and wildlife, as well as fascinating notes on points of interest encountered on route. The routes are presented in five chapters, covering Central Zagori, Vikos Gorge and vicinity, Mt Timfi, Konitsa and Mt Smolikas, and Valia Calda National Park and Metsovo, with highlights including Mt Timfi and Mt Smolikas (Greece's second highest mountain), the breathtaking Vikos Gorge, traditional stone arch bridges and the alpine tarns of Drakolimni (Dragonlakes). With so much stunning scenery, this is a region that cries out to be explored. Seasons: The best time to walk the routes is in springtime (end of May - June) and autumn (September - October) when the sun and temperatures are milder and the region quieter. Centres: Kipi, Dilofo, Tsepelovo, Monodendri, Elafotopos, Papigo, Konitsa, Pades, Metsovo, Vovousa Difficulty: Routes range from easy one-hour strolls on clear and well-waymarked paths suitable for all hikers (Grade 1) to strenuous ascents and rugged non-technical mountainous routes for which a very good level of fitness, route-finding skills and experience in high mountain terrain are required (Grade 4). Must See: Vikos Gorge; scenic villages with unique architecture; amazing 18th-century stone bridges and cobblestone path network; Drakolimni alpine tarns (also known as the Dragonlakes); rafting opportunities on the Voidomatis River; stunning mountain scenery; the mystical Valia Calda National Park You can find a preview (PDF) underneath the picture.

GTA: The Grande Traversata delle Alpi The Grande Traversata delle Alpi (usually abbreviated to GTA), runs from the Nufenen Pass, with soaring 4000 m. peaks in the background, along ancient pack mule tracks through the western Italian Alps, all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. The route provides an insight into one of the most pristine alpine regions still remaining, as well as into a diverse cultural tapestry which is, unfortunately, threatened by extinction. The GTA was conceived in 1979 to somewhat counteract the dramatic decline in population and proved quite successful in creating a new form of tourism generating sources of income, thus providing an incentive for the locals to stay. The route is mainly composed of old connecting trails between the valleys; therefore, the Stages usually end in traditional villages where the revenue from walking tourism directly benefits the local inhabitants. With a range of about 900 kilometres and 65,000 vertical metres spread over approximately 65 Stages, the GTA is a real challenge for long-distance trekkers and, considering the total time required, is not recommended to tackle in a single attempt. Consequently, this Rother Walking Guide is divided into weekly sections, with public transport readily available at the starting points and destinations. The authors, Iris Kürschner and Dieter Haas, have reconnoitred the Western Alps and the routes crossing through them for many years. In this guide, they wish to share their experiences, provide precise descriptions of the Stages and pass on a treasure trove of information concerning the infrastructure, as well as the worthwhile sights and interesting facts which are met along the way. Maps with the courses of the routes drawn in, pertinent and descriptive height profiles, and GPS tracks for downloading have all been provided to supplement this guide, creating an indispensable companion for trekkers traversing the Alps along the GTA.
