Walking in Croatia book – From the Cicerone Guides series. Paperback 160 pages, Publisher: Cicerone Press
Rising suddenly and spectacularly beyond the narrow ribbon of coastal cities and rocky beaches, the mountains of Croatia have much to commend them as a walking destination. Ranging from gently sloping, forested hills to rugged tops and limestone crags, and reaching its most spectacular in the massifs, collectively known as the Dinaric Alps, it is a wilderness of magnificent grandeur, rich in wildlife and plants.
The routes in this guide cover all the main hiking areas in Croatia, from the Dinaric Alps along the coast to a number of other areas further inland. Catering for a range of abilities, they run from easy day trips on islands in the Adriatic to extended itineraries across jagged mountain chains. The book also contains generous background information, including sections on history and language, and appendices giving details of mountain huts and shelters. You can buy this book from Amazon.
