Discovering the Best of Europe on Foot: How to Unplug, Escape Tourist Traps, and Explore at a Human Pace

Join us for Mountaineers Books’ October 16th live web event, featuring Cassandra Overby and Beth Jusino, the authors of Explore Europe on Foot: Your Complete Guide to Planning a Cultural Hiking Adventure and Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino de Santiago. 

Forget the long lines and expensive tickets of traditional European tourist sites. Authors and experienced hikers Beth Jusino and Cassandra Overby show you a better way to experience Europe’s rich history and breathtaking landscapes—on foot. They'll introduce you to the variety of trails that crisscross Europe, from pilgrimage routes like the thousand-year-old Camino de Santiago to more modern history hikes like WWII's Omaha Beach. They'll give you their top tips for narrowing in on the walking holiday that's right for you, whether you want to walk for a day, a week, or longer. Whether you're a casual stroller looking for a more active way to travel or a hard-core hiker looking for a bucket-list-worthy alpine trek, they'll show you just how accessible and affordable a European walking holiday can be—and how to get started planning the cultural hike of a lifetime. 

The presentation will run about 30 minutes, followed by a 30 minute question and answer period. Register today, even if you can’t attend on October 16, and we’ll send you a recording of the event a day or two afterward. Plus, when you register you’ll automatically be entered to win a free copy of both books!
