All about this product



This guidebook explores two treks in the Bernina region of the Swiss-Italian Alps. The Tour of the Bernina is a nine-stage trek circling the Piz Bernina massif, 119 kiometres long and suitable for beginner trekkers.

The Alta Via Valmalenco in Italy is a shorter, eight-stage trek over 94 kilometres, but is a more challenging route suitable for trekkers with more experience. Whether skirting above St. Moritz and below snow-capped giants on the Tour of the Bernina, or climbing over wild, high passes and through isolated mountains in the Italian Valmalenco by Monte Disgrazia, the treks offer incredible experiences. Both feature spectacular peaks towering over snow fields and perfect alpine pastures, with accommodation in comfortable alpine guesthouses and high altitude huts.

This is the first english-speaking guide to trekking in the Bernina, and contains detailed route descriptions in combination with plenty of background and practical information.
