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).

Anyone who thinks that the aroma of cinnamon can be found only in the spice markets of South Asia will get something of a pleasant surprise at the traditional Christkindlmaerkte (Advent markets) of Munich in Bavaria, Germany. Traces of that tantalising scent can be found wafting through the crisp winter air, from the wooden stalls currently standing on Marienplatz in the heart of the city.
