This is the second of two volumes describing the Danube Cycle route, a 1717km cycle ride following the lower part of the Danube, Europe's second longest river. This guidebook describes the route from the vibrant Hungarian capital of Budapest through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Romania to the river's delta on the shores of the Black Sea. The cycling is generally level with a few gentle gradients, mostly on quiet country roads or riverside flood dykes. The 32 stages vary from 30-100km, with some longer excursions and surfaces are mostly asphalt and in good condition, suitable for hybrid or touring cycles. Cycling infrastructure is generally good in Hungary, Croatia and Serbia. In Romania, where there is no waymarking and often long distances between places to sleep and eat, this guidebook gives a detailed route description, maps for each stage at a cycle-friendly a scale of approximately 1:150,000 and a listing of all places offering accommodation. En route you will see spectacular gorges, medieval fortresses, poignant memorials to the recent Yugoslav civil war, vineyard-clad hillsides and rural areas where crops are still planted and harvested by hand and the main means of transport is the horse and cart. Off-route excursions enable short visits to be made to Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine and the Danube delta.

This guidebook describes the Danube Cycleway along the lower part of the River Danube through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Romania. The 1717km long route is split into 32 stages averaging about 50km, and will typically take 3-4 weeks to complete. Following part of EuroVelo 6 (EV6) trans-continental cycle route, the cycling is mostly level, with long stretches off-road on flood dykes, or on quiet roads alongside the flood plain. In contrast to the sections through Austria and Germany, the lower Danube Cycleway goes through regions without a well-developed tourist infrastructure, and cyclists will need to plan ahead and be more self-sufficient. However, it is well within the capabilities of most cycle tourists. The route visits the great cities of Budapest and Belgrade, passes the rugged and spectacular Iron Gates gorge, and ends in the Danube Delta, Europe's largest area of natural wetland. Route descriptions are accompanied by route maps and town/city maps. The guide gives advice on travel and equipment, and lists facilities and accommodation available en route.

Guidebook to the via ferrata routes of the southern Italian Dolomites. This guide covers via ferrata routes in the major mountain ranges of Civetta, Schiara and Pala as well as those to the west in the Brenta. A significant addition (and, as far as we are aware, not previously published in any English language guidebook) is the inclusion of routes around the northern end of Lake Garda and the Piccole Dolomites north of Vicenza. Here the mountains are generally lower and you can enjoy ferrata climbing over a much extended season, with some routes accessible for most of the year. This is the second in a series of two guidebooks to the via ferratas of the Italian Dolomites. (Volume One covers the eastern, northern and central areas of the Dolomites, while Volume Two completes the picture, focusing on the southern, Brenta and Lake Garda areas.)

A guide to cycling the Danube Cycle Way from Donauschingen in Bavaria to Budapest. The Danube Cycle Way has become the most popular holiday cycle touring route in mainland Europe. It has magnificent scenery, fascinating places to visit throughout its length and a wide cultural diversity. It is not unusual to sit in a wayside bar and hear seven different languages being spoken at the same time, but not one of them is likely to be English. It is high time this changed. This guide aims to introduce the Danube Cycle Way not only to keen long-distance cyclists but also to people who have never experienced the joys of this kind of journey. The fact that the majority of the route is on dedicated, clearly signed cycle tracks means that it is perfect for whole families to enjoy. Although the guide divides the length of the cycle way into 20 suggested days, a plentiful amount of low-priced accommodation throughout the entire length of the route means that each day's journey can be tailored to cyclists' needs. The way is almost free of hills, includes visits to monasteries, castles, museums, and ancient cities as well as picturesque villages, and provides adventurous cyclists with a month's sheer pleasure. It is there, waiting to be enjoyed.

A walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles in length and visit nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, follow the canal and explore the shoreline. Summits include Wharton Crag, Arnside Knott, Farleton Knott and Hutton Roof Crags. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. Routes can easily be linked into longer walks and the extensive network of well walked paths enables walks to be shortened or lengthened at will. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features.
