"This travel guide is a must.' South American Explorer

From the Back Cover

Whether you're out for the action, fascinated by wildlife or hanker after the culture and cuisine, Chile and Argentina have firmly established themselves as top destinations for trekking. From gentle trails to the taxing peaks of the Andes, the region offers everything for the walker, cyclist and adventure-junkie.In this fifth edition of Chile and Argentina: The Bradt Trekking Guide, Tim Burford rewalks the established paths, as well as uncovering new territory, inspiring both experienced hikers and prospective wanderers. Focusing on over 35 areas, with details of the region's flora and fauna, this is the guide to carry in your backpack.This guide includes 45 hikes, from northwest Argentina to Tierra del Fuego; unique descriptions of mountain treks near Santiago; rafting, kayaking, cycling, horse-riding and skiing; thorough coverage of national parks, including ecology and wildlife; wildlife on the Valdes Peninsula. (5 1/4 x 8 1/2, 368 pages, illustrations, maps, charts)

More About the Author

I live in Cambridge (UK) and have been writing guidebooks since 1991 - first on hiking in Eastern Europe and then Latin America, and then more general guides (for Bradt Travel Guides and Rough Guides) to the same parts of the world, as well as Alaska! I studied French Language and Literature at Oxford University, so have been able to pick up Latin languages (especially Spanish and Romanian) fairly easily; I had a brief career in publishing before jumping the fence to be a writer. I also spend summers in the Alps, leading hiking groups for Wilderness Travel, one of the leading upmarket American adventure travel companies.
I strongly believe that travel is a force for good in this troubled world, but struggle to reconcile this with its environmental effects, especially the effects of flying on the world's climate. I travel overland where possible (trains in Europe, buses in South America) and cycle at home - but there's no avoiding some intercontinental flights, unpleasant though they are.
