“Wanderlust Europe”: European Wild Trails

Writer

While the pandemic limits our travels and movements, a book entitled "Wanderlust Europe" will take you on some of the most enchanting trails to explore the most evocative places of the Old Continent.

A beautiful photographic volume, which allows us to escape from the complicated times we are experiencing, during which the only trips allowed are, very often, only those done with imagination. In the meantime, until we will be able to experience the beauty of the places in person again , let’s enjoy this “Wanderlust Europe”, a book published by Gestalten that will take you on some of the most enchanting trails to explore the most evocative landscapes. In this volume the Old Continent is explored far and wide in search of those beauties, which are very often excluded from the most popular tourist routes. “Wanderlust Europe” takes us from the Scottish Highlands to the endless amber-colored beaches of the Baltic Sea, from the Scandinavian tundra, to the majestic peaks of the Alps, from the pristine peaks of the Balkans to the rugged coastal mountains of the Mediterranean islands and along the romantic panorama of the valley of the Rhine river.

This work -curated by Alex Roddie, journalist, photographer and outdoor lover- offers useful tips on how to organize long-distance hikes, day trips and weekend walks suitable for hikers of all kinds. All accompanied by evocative images of the places and detailed maps of the suggested routes.
