The routes in this guide cover all the main hiking areas in Croatia, from the Dinaric Alps along the coast to a number of other areas further inland. Catering for a range of abilities, they run from easy day trips on islands in the Adriatic to extended itineraries across jagged mountain chains. The book also contains generous background information, including sections on history and language, and appendices giving details of mountain huts and shelters.
