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).

"The setting is superb, like Rome, Istanbul is built on seven hills, and as with the eternal city, the simultaneity of past and present thrives here. At the confluence of Islam and Christianity, Istanbul groans under the weight of its own history. More impressive than any veneer of twenty-first century excess are the ones far removed. Those ancient layers form the very fabric of this city of over 20 million inhabitants."
