The world's best hikes!

Get your boots on and get set for the globe's most exciting hikes...

 

1. Mount Everest

It’s the ultimate hardcore hike – a trip high into the Himalayan clouds towards the world’s most famous mountain. Come for the big vistas and the ‘I’ve-done-it!’ blisters, but fall in love with the camp camaraderie and the remote villages dotted along the trail. Passing school children running up challenging mountain passes on their way to and from school give an unforgettable insight into life in this remote corner of the world. Our hike finishes with a helicopter trip over Base Camp, for an adrenaline kick of an ending.

 

 

2. Inca Trail

A backpacker bucket list favourite, the Inca Trail doesn’t have to be done on a shoestring budget with a hostel waiting at the end. Take our tour and you’ll make for 104 Express Hike, a slice of trail designed for those who don’t have time for (or don’t fancy) the full four-day trek but still want to arrive in the time-honoured way. Taking the train from Ollantaytambo, you’ll disembark on a trail through the mountains that’s busy with switchbacks and steps but free of the hikers who opt for the longer trek. The famous Sun Gate is your destination – where you’ll get your first glimpse of the famed Inca citadel in the clouds.

 

 

3. Volcanoes National Park

It’s not the walk that’s the draw here, but the residents. In this remote part of Rwanda, on the border with Uganda and the Democratic of Republic of Congo, you’ll find colonies of one of the world’s most endangered species, the Mountain Gorilla. Only 80 permits per day are issued for hikers in this vast, volcano-dotted landscape, and climbing through its mist-hung forests to find the gorillas is a true privilege. Once you find them, spend time watching them up close, as your trained guide offers up comforting sounds to show you’re no threat.

 

 

4. Torres del Paine, Chile

Awesome trekking needn’t mean long days on the trail. If you’re seeking scenery of epic proportions, but without too much effort, you’ll be happy amid the mouthwash-blue lakes and towering glaciers of the Torres del Paine National Park. On our favourite short, two-hour stroll starts out on the banks of Lake Nordenskjold and follow trails scribbled through tumbling foothills and surrounded by snow-capped peaks. Divert through dense forest and past the 30m-high tumbling Salto Grande waterfall, stopping to take numerous pictures of the craggy Cuernos del Paine range – and a wild llama or two – en route.
