Zákynthos: complete guide with walks and nature notes
This new 5th edition has been revised just a couple of months prior to publication, with some essential map, route and restaurant changes. Another plus is the availability of free downloadable GPS tracks for all the walks.
This guidebook is an ideal companion for motorists who want to tour Zakynthos by car, as well as those planning a holiday walking in Zakynthos. The book combines the best features of our ‘Landscapes’ walking and car touring guides with all the detail you would expect in a hefty general guide, but it is pocket size and in full colour. Coverage includes getting there and getting about; recommended accommodation and restaurants; practicalities A-Z; history; 22 main walks with many variations, all with both hand-drawn and GPS-compatible maps; copious notes on geology, flora and fauna (all illustrated).
Area covered: There are car tours and walks all over the island. Although the main towns can be reached by bus, to really take advantage of the island and to reach most of the walks you will need to hire a car (to save money, hire through your travel agent when booking your holiday or book in advance on the web). If you would like to explore the island’s back roads or cover some of the walking routes by car, the author advises hiring a four-wheel drive vehicle. (But 4WD vehicles are not necessary for reaching the starting points of the walks).
4 car tours, 22 walks, 50 pages of nature notes (all illustrated)
192 pages; 2 GPS-compatible touring/walking maps covering the whole island; 22 hand-drawn panoramas of the walks with GPS waypoints; free downloadable GPS tracks for all the walks
