Brian Gade Larsen (1955) and Lone Ildved (1958) have traveled around southern and southwest Europe and the Canary Islands for eight years and visited all the 58 national parks described in their illustrated guidebook. They themselves have traced most of the trails described in the guidebook, and Lone has also taken some of the photos, that are in the guidebook.

Back in 2011, they wanted to do something else in their life than working within their former jobs. They wanted to travel, and they wanted to explore the wildest nature in Europe. They found it in the national parks.

Brian has written most of the texts in the book and Lone has been responsible for the graphic set-up as well as the communication in connection with the contact with the national parks. Brian has a background as landscape architect, as forester and as amateur ornithologist. Lone has a master’s degree in religion and art history and many years of experience in the IT industry. This guidebook is a result of their combined skills, and their desire is to inspire others – young as well as middle-aged and older – to find their hiking boots and explore the wild nature in the national parks
