De Lofoten zijn steeds populairder aan het worden en terecht! Dit boek dekt de hele Lofoten met 60 dagtochten op alle eilanden en delen. De beschrijvingen zijn uitstekend, de praktische informatie bij de wandelingen zeker voldoende, het kaartmateriaal is wat beperkt.
De makers van de gids : ‘WHY THIS GUIDE? First, our passion for this archipelago, an inexhaustible reservoir of fantastic walks. And then, our experience in guiding groups of hikers over the past ten years. Finally, above all, we realized that up to now the available cartography has been limited to a collection of acceptable maps — but not quite acceptable for hiking. The trail indications are often meager and sometimes incorrect. We wanted to remedy this flagrant lack of reliable information as completely as possible.. OUTLINE OF THE TOPO-GUIDE: Hiking the Lofoten Islands is both an invitation to discover this bit of Arctic paradise and a practical guidebook that answers two questions, essential for any hiker: Where should I hike on each of the islands, given the time I have, the weather, and my physical condition? What itineraries should I follow? This guidebook is divided into three parts. Part One is an introduction to the islands. You’ll find general information on their geography, climate, geology, animal and plant life as well as advice on how to prepare for your hikes. Part Two is composed of 60 hiking topo-pages that include all the information you need—descriptions, maps and photos — to discover and appreciate the trails in the best possible way. Part Three describes a trek across the archipelago in 11 days. In addition to a detailed itinerary, it has all the tips you’ll need on food supplies and preparation for the hike and your bivouacs.’
