    A guidebook of half and full-day walks in the lovely Haute Savoie mountains of France. This guide describes 30 circular routes of between 7 and 13km, based around Evian-les-Bains, Morzine, Abondance, Chatel, St-Julien-en-Genevois, Bellevaux, Boege and Habere-Poche.

    Graded from easy to difficult, there are walks to suit most abilities, but a few have some exposed sections and need a head for heights. The guide is divided into 6 areas covering the Saleve and Vuache, the Vallee Verte, the Vallee du Brevon, Pre-Alpes du Leman and Val d'Abondance. With highlights including Cornettes de Bise, Mont de Grange, Dent d'Oche and Pic Bore, the walks in this guide will show you a quieter, less busy side to this outstandingly beautiful area.

    Alongside a detailed route description and map, each walk has a summary of all you need to know before you set out (distance, time to walk, ascent, maximum altitude and instructions for accessing the start). The guidebook includes advice on travel, accommodation and equipment, as well as information about local wildlife and Savoyard food and drink, and a glossary of useful French words. A companion volume, Walking in Haute Savoie: South, is also available (ISBN: 9781852848118)
