Per Alpes – Discovering the Alps in 20 circular walks

This is the title of a free book just released by the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention, in application of the Convention’s Tourism protocol and in collaboration with various partners.

It gives an overview of twenty 2- to 15-day hiking loops distributed all over the Alps. Classical hikes or tours around less known massifs, complementary of Via Alpina which links almost all of them like a common thread, they are an invitation to discover splendid landscapes but also local cultural peculiarities. An interesting aspect: all these hikes are accessible by public transport.

Available in all four Alpine languages and in English on or from
