THERE’S NO BETTER WAY TO GET FROM place to place than to walk. Sure, it’s not the fastest or the easiest, but walking has proven physical, emotional, and psychological benefits. And it’s downright fun. But not many people organize their travel around walking.
Walks Worldwide, a tour operator specializing in hikes and treks, decided to try something interesting: they arranged an around-the-world hiking trip, starting in the UK, and then picking a hike in an adjacent country till they worked their way through six continents and thirty-nine other countries — all the way back to the UK. The resulting hiking tour is a veritable “best of” list of the best hikes in the world, including the Inca Trail, the Appalachian Trail, and the Great Wall of China. Check it out, and plan your next hiking trip.
