3. Book of the Month - Epic Hikes of the World
We often focus on hikes around Vancouver in this newsletter, but there are so many amazing places to hike in the world it can be fun to explore options for travel.
Lonely Planet's Epic Hikes of the World is a best-selling book featuring amazing hikes from 30 different countries, including Canada.
The book doesn't go into great depth on any of the hikes, but has plenty of overview statistics and information, and has plenty of great photography. It makes for a the perfect coffee table book.
"With stories of 50 incredible hiking routes in 30 countries, from New Zealand to Peru, plus a further 150 suggestions, Lonely Planet’s Epic Hikes of the World will inspire a lifetime of adventure on foot. From one-day jaunts and urban trails to month-long thru-hikes, cultural rambles and mountain expeditions, each journey shares one defining feature: being truly epic.
In this follow-up to Epic Bike Rides and Epic Drives, we share our adventures on the world’s best treks and trails. Epic Hikes is organised by continent, with each route brought to life by a first-person account, beautiful photographs and charming illustrated maps. Additionally, each hike includes trip planning advice on how to get there, where to stay, what to pack and where to eat, as well as recommendations for three similar hikes in other regions of the world."
