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).

"In 1992 I was invited to join the inaugural flight of Richard Branson's Vintage Airways, an airline operating holiday flights from Orlando to Key West using two restored Douglas DC3 aircraft offering 1940's style service, livery, uniforms and experience—one of their signature moments was the excited announcement from the flight deck that they had just heard on the radio, news of the Japanese surrender in the Pacific. I remember the thing that surprised me most—besides Japan tenaciously holding on for another 50 years—was having to walk steeply uphill to my seat."

Alastair McKenzie, 'What's Changed In 60 years of Civil Aviation?', The Director, Oct 07
