The Best Hikes in the World

for every type of hiker

Hiking is for everyone. Whether you enjoy short day hikes or long distance treks, you’ll find inspiration for your next hiking adventure here. We’re curating the best hikes in the world one trail at a time. Find out where to hike below. 

Italian Alps, Italy

Day Hikes

It’s easy to incorporate day hiking into your travel itinerary. Pack water, sunglasses, and some snacks and you’re pretty much all set.

Here are some of our favorite day hikes: Kamnik Saddle and Planjava in Slovenia, Sentiero Bonacossa Trail in the Italian Dolomites, and Bobotov Kuv in Montenegro’s Durmitor National Park.

More Day Hikes:

Dachstein Alpine Pasture Hut, Salzburg, Austria

Culinary Hikes

Culinary hikes are those that combine the art of food with the beauty of nature.

Imagine going on a wine tasting hike through the Ahr Valley, Germany’s largest red wine region. Or, perhaps rewarding yourself with a delicious Rösti after a spellbinding hike in Appenzell, Switzerland. Dining and hiking go hand in hand in the Tierser Alpl mountain hut in the Dolomites.

More Culinary Hiking Destinations:

Anaga Coast, Tenerife

Coastal Hikes

Coastal hiking is one of the best introductions to hiking. There’s something so cleansing and purifying about walking along huge bodies of water.

Coastal hikes are more accessible than alpine hikes because they don’t require the same amount of fitness, preparation, and technical expertise. However, proper gear is still a necessity: sun protection, sufficient water, and hiking boots.

Our Favorite Coastal Hiking Trails:

Rifugio Auronzo, Sesto Dolomites

Hut to Hut Hikes

Hut to hut hiking is a type of multi-day hiking in which you overnight in mountain huts along the way.

You can hike hut-to-hut in many places around the world. However, the best hut system is in the European Alps.

Here are some of our favorite hut-to-hut hikes: Triglav National Park Traverse (Slovenia), Alta Via 1 (Italian Dolomites), Berlin High Trail (Austria), Rätikon High Trail (Switzerland and Austria), Karwendel High Trail (Austria).

Lago di Coldai, Dolomites

Long Distance Hikes

Long-distance treks are lengthy multi-day hiking trails. What is deemed “long-distance” is entirely subjective, but let’s say it’s 7 days or more. Depending on the destination, you would either be backpacking, or hiking hut to hut (or inn to inn).

Because some of these long-distance routes total 5,000 km (3,107 miles), these trails are broken up into stages. So, you could hike a segment or chunk of a long-distance trail, without having the hike the whole thing.

The Alta Via 1 in the Dolomites and the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal are approachable long-distance hiking trails.

Other famous long-distance treks: the Eagle Walk (Austria), Via Alpina (Europe), Te Araroa Trail (New Zealand), Via Dinarica (Western Balkans), Pacific Crest Trail (USA), and Appalachian Trail (USA).

Multi-Day Hiking Trails:

Mount Triglav Via Ferrata, Slovenia

Via Ferrata Hikes

A via ferrata (Klettersteig in German) is a protected climbing route.

You need specific via ferrata equipment (climbing harness, climbing helmet, and via ferrata lanyard) to tackle these climbs. Via ferrata routes can be very challenging, even with the steel cables, ladders, and fixed anchors aiding your ascent, or descent.

They are generally graded on a letter scale from A to F (easy to very difficult).

To summit Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain, hikers must climb a via ferrata route.
