Nature sports in general and hiking in particular have become, in our urban and post-industrial societies, a growing phenomenon practiced by millions of citizens. The motivations and interests of this large group are varied, but they have a common element: to disconnect from stressful modern life and reconnect with nature. National parks and other protected areas are the preferred destinations, but they present an challenging contrast for land management: conservation versus tourist use. While once considered a romantic practice of escape and discovery, hiking is now a consumer product and a tourist experience. It promises experiences of disconnection, quiet and health; yet, natural spaces are increasingly scarce and more often than not they are crowded by other recreationalists. This book presents a multidisciplinary perspective on the latest trends and developments in hiking. In particular, the authors work from a European perspective with various outdoor recreation models represented and different conservation initiatives explored in the contexts of Spain, Norway, Poland, Germany and Lebanon. Collectively, the authors attend to hiking as a social phenomenon and economic opportunity, which has the potential to sustainably revitalize rural destinations, if managed properly.

Walking in the Valais is your passport to some memorable walking holidays in this Alpine wonderland. The Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Zinarothorn, Ober Gabelhorn, Dent Blanche, Weisshorn, Bietschhorn, Grand Combin - these are some of the most dramatic mountains in Europe. Here they form a backdrop to a series of routes that should answer the dreams of any keen mountain walker. Best known, perhaps, for the resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee, the Valais district of Switzerland is also the location of the Lötschental and Turtmanntal, the Vals d'Anniviers, Hérens, Bagnes and Ferret - valleys in which there are numerous alp hamlets nestling among the pastures. There are also dozens of small lakes, the longest glacier in the Alps, pristine snowfields, meadows full of flowers, marmots that will eat out of your hand, and no shortage of accommodation, ranging from low-cost dormitories and campsites to the grandest of hotels.

Cyprus is not only famous for its cultural heritage and 9000 year old past – “Aphrodite‘s Island“ is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the eastern Mediterranean. The centre of the island is dominated by the Troodos mountain measuring some 2000 m in height, which despite its considerable altitude is more reminiscent of European low mountains, due to its softly rounded and forested peak. This Rother hiking guide proposes 50 routes mostly ranging from easy to medium level. Next to mountain tours, it also includes a selection of coastal paths along bizarre cliffs and adventurous ravine tours. Forest paths and nature trails lead through aromatic cedar woods, silent valleys and to remote Byzantine churches and monasteries. Classic spring tours are those which take visitors across the peninsula of Akamas, when colourful carpets of flowers and orchids blossoming by the wayside unveil their typical Mediterranean charm.
