Women choos­ing walk­ing hol­i­days

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

Walk­ing hol­i­days are be­com­ing i ncreas­ingly pop­u­lar this year, as more peo­ple are choos­ing ac­tive hol­i­days and are more focused on well­ness – es­pe­cially women. Ac­cord­ing to the As­so­ci­a­tion of I nde­pen­dent Tour Op­er­a­tors i n the USA, walk­ing is the third most pop­u­lar type of hol­i­day, just be­hind city breaks and cul­ture tours. The rise in the pop­u­lar­ity of walk­ing hol­i­days is be­ing cred­ited to celebrity hik­ing in the Hol­ly­wood hills. Young fe­male hik­ers have been in­spired by Tay­lor Swift, Ken­dall Jen­ner or Theresa May. Then there are the stars who’ve taken on a se­ri­ous hik­ing chal­lenge – Kate Perry hiked Machu Pic­chu in Peru and Ch­eryl Cole climbed Mount Kil­i­man­jaro.
