A Long Walk in the Alps: From the Eiger to the Matterhorn
There can be no more enduring symbols of the Alps than the Eiger and the Matterhorn. These two great mountains have inspired climbers throughout Europe while the towns at their feet, Grindelwald and Zermatt, have become World famous resorts. A Long Walk in the Alps describes a journey beginning under the shadow of the Eiger's infamous north wall and finishing in the high meadows beneath the soaring ridges of the Matterhorn. The trail from Grindelwald leads first through the idyllic Jungfrau Region before heading off to high passes, forgotten valleys and sleepy alpine villages on the way to its destination in Zermatt. If you are after a book that gives an insight into the experience of travelling in Switzerland rather than just directions, then A Long Walk in the Alps is for you.
