This guidebook describes the GR221, a 140km (87 mile) long-distance trail through northwestern Mallorca, from Port d'Andratx to Pollença. Also known as the 'Ruta de Pedra en Sec' ('the Drystone Route'), the GR221 is a celebration of Mallorca's limestone heritage, taking in many historic drystone structures as it traverses the rocky peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana. Following old stone-paved paths and mule trails, it showcases the region's beautiful landscape of mountains, forests and cultivated terraces, as well as its spectacular coastline. The GR221 can be walked in 1-2 weeks, although the guide also covers 3 alternative start-points and 3 alternative finishes, which would allow for a shorter trek. The main route is presented in 10 stages of 8.5-20.5km (5-13 miles), with a handful of optional detours to bag neighbouring summits. Detailed route description is accompanied by 1:25,000 mapping and inspirational photography, plus a wealth of information on local points of interest. Accommodation and travel are also thoroughly covered: the trail boasts good transport links and plentiful facilities on route, with accommodation in welcoming mountain villages and the occasional 'refugi'. A comprehensive introduction offers the opportunity to discover more about the region's diverse plants and wildlife and unique history and culture, and an English-Spanish-Catalan glossary can be found in the appendix. With a favourable climate and stunning scenery, the Serra de Tramuntana has much to tempt the walker. The GR221 Drystone Route represents an ideal way to explore this fascinating World Heritage Site.

Mallorca is not only a primary holiday destination for sun-lovers, but also a true hiking paradise, with lovely valleys, wild, romantic gorges and countless panoramic summits, all in the serene hinterland, tucked away from the seasonally overcrowded coasts. The "other" Mallorca surprises the visitor with a well-developed network of trails, and offers a variety of tours for all demands and levels of difficulty, starting from simple beach walks, to adventurous cliff tours and challenging mountain hikes, up to a spectacular canyon crossing. Rolf Goetz, the author of this Rother hiking guide, is one of the best experts on the Spanish Islands, and, through his various publications, has already made an excellent name for himself. He presents hikers with a wide variety of entertaining tour suggestions, mainly emphasising the wild, chasm-filled Serra de Tramuntana in the Northwest, but also including other island regions. This handy little hiking book, which opens up one of the most popular island hiking destinations in the Mediterranean area, has over 48 tour recommendations described in detail, generously illustrated by colour photos and colour map excerpts (scale 1:50,000) and 1:75,000). Thoroughly-researched introductory chapters with tips on interesting sights and a bus schedule complete this excellent guide, which no traveller should do without. Thus, this guide remains a reliable companion on all hikes on this diverse island.

This guidebook presents 50 half-day and day walks in Mallorca's Serra de Tramuntana, the striking limestone range that stretches along the northwestern flank of the island. Whilst the region promises breathtaking scenery and some fantastic walks, there is also some potentially challenging terrain, making guidance when choosing, planning and walking the routes all the more valuable. As many involve steep ground, navigational challenge and hands-on scrambling, these routes are primarily geared towards those with some experience of mountain walking. Comprehensive route description is illustrated with 1:25,000 Alpina mapping and each walk includes a statistics box to aid route selection. Useful contacts are listed in the appendix. There is also background information on history, plants and wildlife, plus language notes in native Catalan and Castilian Spanish. The routes are spread across the Serra de Tramuntana, with characterful towns and villages such as Sóller, Deià, Fornalutx, Valldemossa and Pollença serving as potential bases for a walking holiday. Ranging from 5.5km to 24km, the carefully selected routes showcase the region's rugged limestone peaks, mountain and coastal vistas and rich mountain heritage manifested in numerous drystone constructions, charcoal-burning sites and irrigation systems. Highlights include the lush island of sa Dragonera and the dramatic gorge of Torrent de Pareis. The majority of walks are accessible by public transport and many can be linked, opening up further possibilities for exploration.

Now that the former Soviet Union is open to Western walkers and climbers many are taking the opportunity to visit the fabled Caucasus, the highest mountains in Europe. British climbers knew the area a century ago and, unlike the Alps, the changes have been minimal. 62 walks are described. Some need simple climbing skills but most are straightforward. In addition two routes are described to the tops of Elbruz, the highest mountain in Europe. This is the first modern book of its kind by Russian authors. There are some very easy routes across the Main Range, following good, wide paths, but the fact is that the central part from the Klukhor to Mamisonsky passes cannot offer such a boon. It does not mean you have to climb to get over the Range, but you should not expect a comfortable path up to the saddle and you have to be ready for scree, grass and snow slopes. Not a big hardship, considering the reward in calm and seclusion, so rare nowadays.

A comprehensive walking guide to Mallorca. The 80 varied walking routes cover 4 areas around the island - Pollenca and the north, The Central Mountains, Andratx and the south, and the Serra de Llevant. It provides a selection of walks of all degrees of difficulty, and should enable even those limited to a short holiday to make the best use of their time. Circular walks have been described whenever possible, but sometimes it is necessary to return the same way to the starting point. Rugged mountain walks contrast with remote valleys, while waymarked trails give way to long-forgotten mule tracks and hidden mountain passes. Some walks run close to breathtaking cliff coastlines, while others pass through sleepy villages where welcome refreshment can be obtained. Reprinted in 2014 with updates.
