We all have a 'bucket list' of walking routes – for some this might be the Coast to Coast, or LEJOG. For others, the Tour of Mont Blanc and other alpine trekking routes are the stuff of dreams, as you sink into a comfortable bunk after an incredible day of walking in the mountains. For more intrepid adventurers, explorations of remote lands such as Tajikistan, Japan, the Himalaya and the Overland Track in Tasmania are made easy with a Cicerone guidebook.
