All you need to know about Walking Holidays

What to pack for a hiking holiday?

The most important thing to pack for a hiking holiday is a comfortable backpack, breathable layered clothing, sturdy shoes and thick hiking socks. You'll also need a reusable water bottle, a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and snacks. Don't forget to bring your camera and some extra SD cards to capture all that beauty you'll see on your hike.

Where is the best hiking in the world?

When you think of hiking, you can’t go past the iconic destinations like the national parks of the USA and Canada, the wild landscapes of Patagonia, the Scottish Highlands, and the stunning trails of New Zealand, Scandinavia and Nepal. We also love hiking around world wonders like Peru’s Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China.

Where should you go on a walking holiday in Europe?

Europe’s gorgeous cities are perfect for a walking holiday and you can hit the streets from the Latin Quarter of Paris to the historic sights of Berlin. Wander across the famous bridges of Prague, ramble through the ancient squares of Rome, and marvel at the scenery as you stroll through Salzburg.
