The first edition of "Trek!" gloriously spanned the wild mountains, rainforests and deserts of our incredible planet, revealing how many of its once remote corners are now regularly visited by ordinary travellers - a fact that would have astonished the intrepid explorers of the past. Acting as our personal guide, Claes Grundsten has added to his breathtaking journey through the most spectacular locations on Earth, increasing the number of featured trails to more than 50. Ranging through six continents, his selection includes: popular but accessible hiking routes, such as the Inca Trail in Peru and the Milford Track in New Zealand; fabulous high-altitude terrain, from Europe's Tour du Mont Blanc to South America's Cordillera Blanca; and, vast awe-inspiring tracts of wilderness, such as the Altai of Mongolia and the Yukon in Canada - all places to enthrall even the most seasoned visitor.In this new, expanded edition he includes day trips into the mountains of the Canary Islands and Madeira, long hikes in the Siemens mountains of Ethiopia, two trips in Jordan around Petra and the Wadi Rum desert, adventures in the rainforest of Papua New Guinea, several long, varied hikes on the Larapinta Trail in Australia's Northern Territory, and Heaphys Track and Keppkers Track, New Zealand - an appealing mix of the easy, the difficult and the truly wild. Should you wish to translate your reading into reality, at the back of this book there is a detailed continent-by-continent reference guide, which sets out all the essential facts you will need to know before you embark on your trip of a lifetime.
