Walking in Europe – spring walks, and summer Alpine treks

Here are some great ideas for getting away in our spring European information pages, or dip into these featured Cicerone-extra articles for ideas and inspiration for European walks and treks. You can also search our Blogs for more ideas.

Planning a trekking holiday in the Alps this summer? We have some great ideas for first time treks, and to more challenging trails, and the quieter areas of the Alps.

If you're only planning to take a few days away, why not choose a selection of individual downloadable routes, rather than taking a complete guidebook. If you find you enjoy the area you have visited, you can always buy the whole guidebook for further adventures in the future. Simply 'browse routes' on any one of our book pages on the website.

On cicerone-extra.com there are loads of exclusive articles about outdoor activities – walking, mountaineering, cycling and much more. We hope you’ll want to check back each month for a regular dose of fresh air and inspiration.

We’d love you to comment and send us your stories, too. It's all about that little bit extra to share between us.
