This book identifies the greatest walks in Europe: twelve of the best long-distance walks (taking from four to fifteen days to complete) and twelve extraordinary day walks. Among the long-distance walks are the incomparable GR20 in Corsica, the ancient Ridgeway across English downland; the Jungfrau Horseshoe in Austria and the Kungsleden, or Royal Trail, through the Swedish wilderness.

Short walks include the Snowdon Horseshoe, one of the finest mountain walks in Britain; a walk through the Verdon Gorge in France and an excursion to the Inaccessible Pinnacle on the romantic Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sale describes each route, explaining noteworthy features of all kinds and giving historical and cultural details as well as useful information about maps, statistics and the like.
