Author of the critically acclaimed Explore Europe on Foot, Cassandra Overby now shares her hand-picked destinations and itineraries for a “home-base” adventure--stay in just one or two places while enjoying day trips on the region’s trails and other activities. Home Base Hiking Europe focuses on ten unique destinations, each tailor-made for its scenic locales, comfortable lodgings, lively restaurants, interesting cultural and historic sights, and access to fabulous day hiking.

Overby provides comprehensive information to help plan the perfect trip, including best time to visit; what to pack; how to get there; tips for traveling with children; as well as recommendations for lodging, restaurants, supplies, attractions, and more. Readers will find turn-by-turn directions and maps on four different trails in each region, plus details on organizing transportation to trailheads, tips for hiring local guides, and how to get the most out of each excursion.
