For long isolated, Romania's Carpathians offer some of the finest walking in Europe. There are well waymarked paths, adequate maps and a good network of mountain huts.

More than just beautiful landscapes, Europe's wildest mountains offer a chance to discover a European scene that has now disappeared further west. There is a remarkable wealth of wildlife, the region being one of the last European strongholds of the wolf and bear.

  • Complete guide to exploring the Carpathian mountains.
  • Includes both remote and more popular areas, such as Poiana Brasov.
  • Detailed descriptions of main bases and ranges.
  • Over 40 colour maps and colour photographs.
  • Information on language, local sights and attractions, travel issues, skiing, mountain biking and walking.

The author, James Roberts, was an enthusiastic walker and explorer from an early age. As a leading authority on walking in Romania, he guided walking groups there for several years. Sadly, although quite young, he died while this book was in the final stages of preparation.
