The shapely peaks, waymarked and frequently signposted paths and some of the best huts in the Alps make it ideal for novice long-distance hikers. Consolidating these aspects is the vital transport, language, accommodation and equipment information provided in the introduction. Both tours are accompanied by a brief introduction, together with profiles of the route and other vital information to enhance your experience of each area.
