The English language "bible" to walks and scrambles in Norway. -- Irish Mountain Log, Summer 2006
This is a tome of biblical
proportions for anyone with a hankering after Norse know how.
-- Adventure Travel Adventure Travel Magazine, Sept/Oct 06
The book gives easy to understand directions and descriptions to some of Norway's classic mountain walks and scrambles. Lavishly illustrated with colour pictures, it will be of use in planning a trip to Norway as well as being a useful on-the-ground guidebook when you arrive. The scrambles are compared to ones in Britain so that the hillgoer has an understanding of the technical ability required for a particular route.
Practical advice is contained in Appendices on where to get essentials such as maps and camping supplies; and also top-tips on how to visit Norway without breaking the bank balance.
In short, this is the one-volume book required for a first-time mountaineering of hillwalking trip to the land of the midnight sun.
