Our Latest Newsletter

November News: Aiguilles Rouges Autumn tour | Bikepacking in New Zealand | Hiking the GR130 and GR131

Good morning,

I hope you are keeping safe and well! For those of you who haven't met me yet, my name is Louise and I've recently joined the Cicerone team. I'll be looking after our newsletters going forward, taking over from my colleague Hannah (thanks Hannah!).

In the newsletter this month, Iain Davidson gives an account of his five-day tour around the Aiguilles Rouges mountains near Chamonix. Stephen Dunnett shares his experience of completing the Tour Aotearoa in 2020, and suggests how you could turn this dream into reality and what to expect along the way. Finally, in search of some winter sun, Tom Martens writes about his trip to the Canary Islands to explore the world's steepest island.

We've also got a brand new podcast episode for you to listen to this week. We all know that a dose of walking somewhere sunny can break up the cold and wet winter and, whilst we can't actually guarantee the weather, there are a few reliable destinations. Paddy Dillon shares his favourites, thoroughly tested over a lifetime of walking.

Enjoy!

All the best,

Louise
