Guidebook to a range of 30 varied, graded day walks in the Alpes Maritimes, Alpes de Haute-Provence and Mercantour regions of Provence. Provence's sunshine and relaxed Mediterranean charm offers the walker a diversity of landscapes - from Mont Mounier in the remote mountains of the north west Mercantour to the spectacular Verdon Gorge, one of many in the region. Lower-level walks in the Alpes Maritimes are also described, nestling inland from the craggy Esterel. None of the routes require special equipment although some of the more challenging routes may be exposed and precipitous. All should be suitable for walkers of average fitness. Routes are described step by step, with clear maps and profiles to help you assess them, along with the standard route summary table at the back of the guide.Biografía del autor:
