||Walking in the Haute Savoie
Walking in the Haute Savoie by Janette Norton, December 13, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Cardiff United Kingdom
I bought this book 4 years ago, and used it on a week's walking holiday. My son liked it so much he kept it, and I had to buy another copy. Janette Norton has an extensive knowledge of the area, and an appreciation for the spectacular scenery.
Her walks are varied, and graded, and the descriptions exactly describe the difficulty. Over a period of a few years, I have walked about three quarters of the walks in the book, and there has not been a walk that was not superb, and varied. They range from approx 3 hours to 6 hours walking time, with 1000 metres of height gain, to more gentle walks. Most of the walks are day walks, are easy to follow, and are based on a circuit from a suitable parking area. There are some fairly difficult walks for those who enjoy a little scrambling, and have a head for heights. I highly recommend this book. It is an excellent and informative introduction to the best walking in the area.
