Publisher Description:

This, the latest volume in Cicerone's World Mountain Ranges series, is a unique planning resource for anyone preparing to explore the mountains of the Swiss Alps, providing all the information needed for a variety of mountainous pursuits - walking, hiking, climbing or ski mountaineering.

Covering each mountain area in Switzerland, the guide describes all the country's major peaks, passes and valleys to help readers choose the best locations to indulge their love of the outdoors. There is comprehensive information on all the key centres: Grindelwald, St Moritz, Zermatt and many, many more.

Detailing access, accommodation and facilities in valley bases as well as pinpointing mountain huts, all the necessary information on where to stay is included. Classic walks and climbs in all areas are identified and major hut-to-hut trekking routes are outlined.

Although aimed at outdoor enthusiasts of all standards, the guide gives climbing grades where appropriate and multi-day hiking routes are also outlined for the more experienced.

A well-illustrated guide with scores of expertly-drawn maps, this is the essential guide for active visitors to one of Europe's most mountainous countries.
