Arco Rock

Arco Rock

Arco Rock

This is an indispensable guide to an indispensable destination. What would the European climbing scene be today without the crags that have developed between Lake Garda and the Sarca valley? On these welcoming rocks personalities such as Manolo, Bassi and Mariacher have written the history of this sport. This valley is special for the quality and abundance of its rock, the magical climate of Lake Garda and the way it has embraced tourism that has transformed this place into a unique location.

The discovery of sport climbing in the area of Giudicarie is icing on the cake: a paradise of grassy plateaus where tourism has not yet invaded and the rock, as splendid as that found around Arco, enjoys the fresh climate of the Dolomites during the summer.

Dolomites - Rock Climbs & Via Ferrata

The Dolomites – Rock Climbs and Via Ferrata

James Rushforth

The elegant and dramatic peaks of the Dolomites, one of the most recently designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, have long epitomised the ideals of climbers the world over. These spectacular limestone and dolomite monoliths rise abruptly from beautiful meadows, their pale faces contrasting starkly with the vibrant colour of the surrounding alpine pastures, to create one of the most instantly recognisable landscapes in the World. Located in northern Italy, and representing a true mix of Italian and Austrian culture, these so-called 'Pale Alps' contain climbing of every shape and size. Single pitch sport crags lie beside kilometre-long traditional routes, with climbs which are steeped in history running parallel to modern bolted lines. The area is particularly renowned for its via ferrata, cabled routes predating the Great War which give superb access to some of the World's most striking summits. The metal wires, interspersed with breathtaking ladders and unlikely suspension bridges, provide aerial assault courses which combine the thrill of an ascent on rock with the security of a protected mountain scramble. This Rockfax guide covers everything you need for a climbing trip regardless of ability, whether it be sport, trad, via ferrata or a combination of all three. It features all the major areas and is the only guidebook available to have such comprehensive coverage. Catinaccio, Val di Fassa, Marmolada, Sella Group, Val Gardena, Fanis Group, Lagazuoi Group, Tofana Group, Cinque Torri, Cortina Basin, Cadini di Misurina, Tre Cime.

Gran Paradiso Cicerone Walking Guide

Wandelgids Gran Paradiso - A Guidebook for Walkers and Trekkers | Cicerone

The Gran Paradiso sits in the Valle d’Aosta, in northwestern Italy, a marvellous region of magical mountains and rugged desolate valleys, verging on pristine wilderness. It is a mere alpine chough’s flight from the Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Matterhorn ranges, landmark giants that can be seen from the many scenic passes and lookouts visited during this guide. Despite its attractions, the park is relatively undiscovered. Walkers can often enjoy unforgettable days on excellent trails through spectacular valleys all to themselves, even at the height of the summer season.

This guide does not purport to cover the whole of the Gran Paradiso and southern Valle d’Aosta comprehensively. The itineraries explore highlights and special places to whet walking appetites. With a map and a sense of adventure, you will be able to concoct scores of other delightful walks.

The guide begins with the superb long-distance route, Alta Via 2. It lends itself to numerous variations and each stage could be followed as a day walk. The successive chapters of the guide contain walks suitable for visitors who prefer to make their base in a valley hotel or campsite and embark on shorter excursions. A handful of excellent traverses is also included, brilliant routes that convey walkers to wild exhilarating heights and act as links between the inhabited valleys. Suggestions are given for combining these into a further series of long-distance routes.

This inspirational guide to walking and trekking in Italy's Sibillini National Park includes a full description of the GAS, Grande Anello dei Sibillini, 8-day circular trek. Easily reached from the budget airline destinations on the Adriatic coast and from Rome, the Monti Sibillini belong to the Appenine chain that straddles the Marche and Umbria, and are set to become a popular international walking destination. Currently little known to foreign visitors, they offer vast highlands smothered in wildflowers, canyons burrowing deep into mountainsides, accessible ridges with breathtaking views and over 50 peaks, many over 2000m.

• 21 shorter walks and one 8-day trek, suitable for walkers of all abilities
• a long walking season, from early spring to late autumn
• the first English-language guide to the area
• details of accommodation, refreshments and public transport along all the routes with full-colour mapping and profiles

The wondrously varied landscapes of the Sibillini make for memorable outdoor holidays at any time of year, and holidaymakers of all grades of walking expertise will find something to get their boots into. There are leisurely strolls across flowered meadows and paths down eerie canyons, dizzy high ridge itineraries and a host of walkers’ peaks. This guide provides a selection of 21 day walks ranging from 1hr 30mins to 6hrs in duration, and covering the unmissable features of this region. In addition, a magnificent 8-day trek circling the Sibillini is given in detail: the GAS – Grande Anello dei Sibillini – is highly recommended and accessible to everyone, as nothing of a mountaineering nature is required. Created by enthusiasts from the Italian Alpine Club in the 1980s, it dips in and out of peaceful out-of-the-way hamlets. The objective was to offer an overall vision of the Sibillini and involve outermost villages, a superb idea. Moreover, it encourages visitors to discover that there is more to the Sibilllini than the hot spots such as Castelluccio and Gole dell’Infern-accio, where visitor numbers are huge at peak times. The GAS lends itself to numerous variations as well as detours to link up with the shorter day walks.

This is the first English-language guide to the Stelvio National Park and also includes an Italian-German-English glossary, accommodation listings and other useful contact information.

Tuscany North Rother WG

Wandelgids Tuscany North - Toscane Noord | Rother
Non solo vino! For hikers and for mountaineers, Italy's classic art and cultural scene offers many highlights. High and low mountains, but also countless nature reserves mark the country's "greenest" region.
Marvellous garden scenarios around Florence and hills covered in cypresses can be explored on foot - from the Giardino di Boboli in the south of the Medici metropolis, to the Roman ruins in the high Fiesole, from the birthplace of the ingenious Leonardo to the floral paradise of the Monti della Calvana. Large forests and hidden valleys lure hikers to the Casentino and Mugello, prompting that special discovery. Between the La Verna monastery and the nature reserve by the source of the river Arno you can trace the footsteps of Dante and Saint Frances. Versilia is one of the most spectacular landscapes Italy has to offer: nearly 2000 metre is the difference in altitude between the wide sandy beaches surrounding Viareggio, the world-famous marble quarries around Carrara and the summit of the Apuanian Alps. This new hiking guide will unveil spectacular and also quiet tour destinations. The Garfagnana and the Lunigiana seem almost like the Alps: the rough lime terraces of the Apuanians are in great contrast with the long-drawn, forest-green and flower-covered sandstone crests of the Apennines. Ancient villages, caves and hundreds of lakes render the Lucca and La Spézia hinterland a paradise for tours of the special kind - including sharp mountain paths.
