You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • Guidebooks - Cicerone - Trekking in the Dolomites - Alte Via 1 & 2

    By Gilian Price

    This handy guidebook contains detailed route descriptions for walking the popular Alta Via routes 1 and 2 across the Dolomites. The AV1 is 120km long over 11 day stages and is ideal for beginners to Alpine walking whereas the AV2 covers 160km in 13 days and is undeniably longer and more strenuous. The more demanding AV3-6 routes are also outlined.

    The routes are graded to give an idea of the difficulty of the route. They start at grade 1 which refers to a straightforward path with moderate gradient which is suitable for all walkers, and end at grade 3 which describes routes that require some previous experience on mountainous terrain due to steep and exposed sections.

    The AV1 route is described over 11 day stages and covers 120km. It’s highest point is 2752m and is a straightforward yet astoundingly rewarding route which is perfectly suited for a first Alpine experience. In terms of overall difficulty it rates a grade 2.

    The AV2 is longer and undeniably more strenuous than the AV1 route and remains higher for longer. Over 13 days 160 km are covered and the route strays as high as 2900m in severe environments. Numerous aided and exposed sections are encountered although several can be detoured. It rates a grade 3 ‘at worst’.
