More remote and wild than their Swiss and Austrian counterparts, the uncrowded trails of France and Italy's breathtaking alpine parks are virtually unknown. With these hikes you'll meander through emerald meadows mingled with glaciers, charming farms and villages, and valleys ringed with soaring peaks and picturesque mountain tarns. After a good day's hike you'll stop at one of the inexpensive mountain lodgings along the way. All of this with elbow room to spare! Walking the Alpine Parks of France and Northwest Italy features complete details on 110 hikes through France's Parc National du Mercantour, Parc Naturel Regional du Queyras, Parc National des Ecrins, and Italy's Parc Nationale del Gran Paradiso. You'll find practical advice on park regulations, finding accommodations, transportation, language, weather, what to bring, and more.
