The descriptions include varied, personal anecdotes of my tours. My successes, difficulties, and unexpected setbacks.
The text is accompanied by numerous photographs, that not only aim to support the description, but also have artistic value and aim to expose the reader to the incredible atmosphere inherent to such adventures. For example, the description of the ‘southern volcanoes’ in Chile often surprises skiers, hikers and climbers.
Because access to the routes is often not easy in these, as yet, little developed areas, great care has been taken to provide detailed maps and descriptions to route origins.
Each region is first presented as a whole. The itineraries are portrayed through illustrated descriptive sheets. Complementary information for other interesting itineraries - not undertaken by the author - is sometimes added.
