Try Some­thing New: long-dis­tance trails

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Contents -

Of all the means on of­fer to ex­plore this planet, it’s a bold choice to opt for the most ba­sic. But walk­ing is a great way to re­con­nect with the ex­pe­ri­ences of cen­turies of trav­ellers be­fore you, and might be the only means to see a hid­den lake or lost ruin. Not all hikes re­quire tent-pitch­ing skills; for ev­ery trail that de­mands wild camp­ing, there are plenty of oth­ers where you end the day un­der a fixed roof, with a hot meal and a cold beer, and bags de­liv­ered by a for­ward­ing ser­vice.
