Hiking in Europe


by William L. Sullivan

Hiking in Europe

Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan takes us on Europe's most interesting and least known hiking trails, from Greece and and the Pyrenees to Norway and the Alps. The presentation features areas from his newly published illustrated travel journal, "Little Travelers: Six Months in Europe With Two Kids." Learn what to expect at a Slovakian "hut", where to launch a tour of the Orkneys, and where to stay on the active volcanic island of Stromboli. As always, Sullivan spices his lecture with anecdotes about local history, wildflowers, and outdoor lore.

Sullivan is the author of 22 books, including the popular “100 Hikes” series, “Oregon Trips & Trails,” and “Cabin Fever.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon in 1985, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” one of the most significant books in the state’s history.
