Torres del Paine and Walking in Croatia, by Rudolf Abrahams

torres_del_paine.jpgRudolph’s latest book would also be a welcome gift for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Torres del Paine (Cicerone, £15) is the complete guide to trekking in Chile’s premier National Park, covering the southern tip of the Andes in Chile and Patagonia with the emphasis on low-impact trekking. Routes include the Torres del Paine itself (10-11 days) as well as a half circuit and other day treks.

There is information on mountain refuges and how to link the routes together, with advice on when to travel as well as safety factors and technical difficulty. Must-see attractions include the magnificent granite spires of the ‘towers’ or torres, vast glaciers and unspoilt forests beneath cloud-streaked skies.

Purchase from Amazon.

Also from Rudolph this summer is the second edition of another guidebook in the same series, Walking in Croatia, which covers mountain walking and trekking in the Dinaric Alps, Istria, Slavonia and around Zagreb (Cicerone, £14).

"Micklo Corpus, a local blackfella, invited me up to Dabudabagun - sand dunes overlooking the magnificent 40 Km Cable beach. As we sat on a midden of ancient seashells, collected and eaten by countless generations of Broome’s ‘first people’ we watched a shark (or was it watching us) cruising up and down. It was just 6 feet from the shore where only moments before a mother and two children were paddling."
