50 Greatest Walks of The World Competition

Win a copy of Barry Stone's Book "The 50 Greatest Walks of the World"

Barry Stone, author of 1001 Walks You Must Experience Before You Die, delves into some of the lesser-known aspects of the world's most famous and not-quite-so famous trails.

The perfect accompaniment to practical guidebooks, Stone relates how slings and carabiners kept him from falling headlong off the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and reports on the progress of the continental-wide monster, the Trans Canada Trail, gaps in which are still being filled by countless grassroots communities. The author gives a mix of personal knowledge and experience with historical background and practical information. It is not a guide book with details you would need to carry out a walk, but for anyone that walks long distance trails it would definitely get you thinking about your next possible adventure.

With walks that will appeal to everyone regardless of ability, The 50 Greatest Walks of the World includes British classics such as the Pennine Way, Offa's Dyke Path, and the Old Man of Hoy as well as personal favourites such as Italy's Cinque Terre Classic and the Isle of Skye's Trotternish Ridge, one of Britain's finest ridge traverses with almost 2,500m of ascents. Whether it's a climb, a stroll, or a life-changing slog, this book has the walk for you

The book includes the South West Coast Path, some of which we cover on our Jurassic Coast and Cornwall Coast Walking Holidays.

We have 2 copies of this book to give away.
