Covering each mountain area in Switzerland, the guide describes all the country's major peaks, passes and valleys to help readers choose the best locations to indulge their love of the outdoors. There is comprehensive information on all the key centres: Grindelwald, St Moritz, Zermatt and many, many more.

Although aimed at outdoor enthusiasts of all standards, the guide gives climbing grades where appropriate and multi-day hiking routes are also outlined for the more experienced.
