Frommer's Easy Guide to Prince Edward island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick (USED)

More Info
Frommer's books aren't written by committee, or by travel writers who simply pop in briefly to a destination and then consider the job done. We employ the best local experts to author our guides, like Darcy Rhyno, a seasoned journalist born into a Nova Scotia fishing family, who has been traveling through the Maritimes since he was a small child and built his career writing in and about Atlantic Canada.

Rhyno introduces readers to the best and most authentic restaurants, hotels, shops, attractions and nightlife in the Maritimes; and provides unique insights into their history, natural wonders and vibrant contemporary culture. Most importantly, he'll tell you straight out what's worth your precious vacation time...and what you can skip with no qualms.

This light, portable book includes a fold-out map, plus detailed maps throughout the guide, exact pricing, opening hours, and the other important details that will make your trip smoother and less hectic. It features smartly conceived itineraries for travelers of all types and fastidiously researched information on the Maritimes' famed scenic drives and hiking opportunities. It offers savvy, sometimes sneaky, tips for saving money in ALL price ranges, whether you need to pinch pennies or can splash out a bit.

    GR5 Trail (USED)

    GR5 Trail (USED)

    More Info

    Guidebook to the northernmost section of the GR5 - from Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands, through Belgium and Luxembourg, to Schirmeck in the northeast of France. Described over 49 stages, this 1000 kilometre section of the GR5 is relatively easy and ideal for those who don't want to hike up and down steep mountains - or not just yet.

    Clear route description is accompanied by 1:100K mapping, together with information on points of interest passed along the way. Background information on landscape, wildlife and history is included, as is practical information - everything from clothing, equipment, food, drink and waymarking to maps, money and staying in touch - making planning and executing a trip as easy as possible.

    One of the world's best long distance walking trails, the GR5, in its entirety, covers an impressive 1423 miles (2290km) on its way from the North Sea to the Mediterranean. This northern stretch - before the trail hits the depth of the Vosges - is as much a cultural experience as it is a walk through nature. Walkers will discover different linguistic communities, culinary traditions and architecture. Those partial to museums will also be in for a treat - from tugboats to wine, salt to flint, the route passes by an impressive array of interesting cultural institutions.

    Two further Cicerone guidebooks cover the remaining sections of the GR5; 'The GR5 Trail - Vosges and Jura', and 'The GR5 Trail' which covers the route from Lac Léman to the Mediterranean.
