Home to the highest and most spectacular mountains in Western Europe, the Swiss Alps offer limitless opportunities for walkers, climbers and ski-tourers.
Between the surprisingly little-trod Chablais Alps in the south west and the glacier-draped Silvretta in the north east, a host of great treks, climbs and tours are just waiting to be enjoyed. The trouble is knowing where to start.
The latest guidebook in Cicerone's World Mountain Ranges series is designed to help you make that choice. Written by alpine expert Kev Reynolds, The Swiss Alps gives an overview of every mountain range and valley - the lie of the land, the key approaches, bases and peaks. Along the way, all the best walks, climbs and treks are highlighted, with many described and mapped in full, supplemented by more detailed planning information on access, bases, huts, maps and guides at the end of each chapter.
Whether you're planning your first trip or your fiftieth to this iconic mountain region - well-known to climbers and chocolate-lovers alike - this comprehensive, inspirational and beautiful book will set you off in the right direction.
