Ideal Hiking Gift for Christmas – Trekking Beyond

12 Dec , 2018  

Earlier in the year, photographer Alex Treadway got in touch to ask if we had any good tips for places to take photos on the West Highland Way. It would be great to claim that our expertise on the route massively helped to give him ideas, but anyone who has walked the route would be able to give the same advice.  There are points on the West Highland Way that just stick in your mind and Alex has captured these in the beautifully put together book, Trekking Beyond.

Trekking Beyond breaks the greatest walking routes in the world down into bitesize essays, packed with great detail that really bring each trail to life.

The authors evoke the feeling of what it is like to actually be there to experience these wild and beautiful places as well as giving the history of the trail. Alex’s stunning photos compliment the writing perfectly, making for a coffee-table book that is a joy to immerse yourself in.

There are Macs Adventure favourites in here like the West Highland Way and Camino de Santiago. There are also some of the more off the beaten track trips we sell, like the Julian Alps, Rila and Pirin National Parks and Kungsleden.  Then there are some great inspirations for our future as we expand our worldwide portfolio of tours.

We are not affiliated or making anything from pushing this book, we just think it is a beautiful creation that deserves to be seen. If you are thinking of taking a walking trip and looking for inspiration, this is definitely an incredible place to start.

Trekking Beyond is available to purchase from Waterstones, Blackwells and Amazon and definitely would make an ideal Christmas present for those who love to walk.
