Publisher: National Geographic
Publication Date: February 2020

Discover European wilderness–from Croatia’s coastline to Scotland’s highlands–in this comprehensive guide to pristine parks and wild spaces, full of photos, maps, and tips.
In these rich and informative pages, the travel pros at National Geographic bring you the premier guide to 460 national parks of Europe. Find your way to Snowdonia in Wales, offering more than 1,490 miles of walking trails through thick forests, coastal beaches, deep lakes, and jagged mountains. Catch a glimpse of more than 10,000 species inhabiting Germany’s Bavarian Forest. Explore the flora and fauna while camping amid the twin peaks of France’s Pyrénées. Or visit “the home of the giants,” Norway’s Jotunheimen park, containing the country’s 29 highest peaks and plenty of backcountry hiking. This breathtaking tour spans the entire continent and will inspire your next grand adventure with more than 400 photos, 55 maps, rich histories, exciting itineraries, and need-to-know tips from what to do and how to get there. Each entry includes favorite spots for viewing scenery and wildlife, the best trails to walk or hike, and insights into what makes each of these parks worth visiting. Inspiring and informative, this illuminating guide will help you to experience Europe in a whole new way.

Complete National Parks of Europe is the latest offering from National Geographic.  I was excited to browse through this book.  I have a few co-workers who are from different parts of Europe (Germany, Belgium, and Romania).  I brought this volume into work with me and had them show me the places that they had visited themselves.  I had a lot of fun listening to each of them talk about their experiences.  As well as their take on places in their own countries that they had yet to visit.  

The book is filled with amazing photographs and brief descriptions of the region.  Also, included are possible wildlife sightings as well as brief history tidbits.  I have my favorite dream places all mapped out.  I hope I get to visit some of them one day. Now I just need to win the lottery! I highly recommend this book for any travel enthusiast or travel "dreamer" like me.
