Hiking Bucket list

*disclaimer: I am not getting paid to talk about anything in this post, and none of the links I mention are affiliate links. I have put in links that I think are helpful, and all opinions are my own*

I wanted to stay with the travel theme for this week and I think this flows on nicely from my tips to cut holiday costs which you should definitely check out!

I am into hiking and I am aware that it is not everyone’s cup of tea but for me it is a dream holiday. I love exploring and going on adventures rather than sitting and tanning in a resort (but everyone is different). I think mainly it is because I cannot sit still for long, but I just don’t think the views and experience you can get from hiking these beautiful places can be beaten.

I am not going to lie I have spent a lot of time during this lockdown watching people’s travel vlogs around the world and it has made me super jealous, but I know that that will be me one day.

Therefore, I decided that I wanted to put together a list of places that I want to explore. So here is my

hiking bucket list

  • Inca Trail

This is one of the top trails for me (and I think others) it is in Machu Picchu in Peru and that is already on my bucket list to visit anyway. Therefore, I think that would make an epic trip to explore the country first and then finish with the Inca Trail. Honestly, from what I have heard and seen through videos and pictures it looks breathtaking and I cannot wait to be able to do this trip.

If I haven’t convinced you yet then read here where you can book a trail but also it is filled with information about what to expect when you do the Inca Trail.

  • W Trek

Another absolutely stunning trek is the W Trek in Patagonia in Chile. This trek is known as the world’s most remote hike, and has it’s name because of the shape of the path that you follow in the Torres del Paine National Park.

This hike involves beautiful giant glaciers, turquoise lakes and the absolutely stunning pinnacles that mark the Patagonian skyline. The views and wilderness will completely transform your experience and will be a trip to remember. This will just be an amazing hike to do.

  • Walk of the Gods

This hike is known as the “Walk of the Gods” taking you along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I mean if that name doesn’t draw you in then I don’t know what will. I already want to visit Italy as well, and so similar to Peru I think I would like to explore Italy first and then end with this beautiful hike. That will be a trip to remember!

This hike takes you along a beautiful walk on Italy’s western coast. You basically follow this ancient path, walking under limestone cliffs and stone farmhouses leading you to the picturesque Positano. This you will probably have seen pictures of around a lot, and the views do not disappoint. Plus this hike is a great trail that is accessible for even people that are not into hiking.

  • Tour du Mont Blanc

The next hike is one of Europe’s famous mountains and the highest in the Alps and that is “Tour du Mont Blanc” and it kind of passes through Italy, France and Switzerland. This is another one that is normally top on a hikers bucket list.

This hike is surrounded by pastures and glaciers and is well-marked and easy to navigate (which is great for not getting lost). There is also lodgings along the way to rest in, with food and of course breathtaking views. This is just a perfect trip.

Check out this beginner’s guide for this Hike which has more information.

  • La Plagne

The last hike on my list (for now) is La Plagne in France. This one I added fairly recently after my recent snowboarding trip in January this year. I have seen the pictures of where we stayed the last couple of months and it looks beautiful. Therefore, I think it would be a whole different experience to hike it or hike the places that we would snowboard over.

I feel like this one is not well known or popular either so it would be nice and quiet but still will have those stunning views. Plus being able to compare from seeing snow filled mountains to a sunny mountain will be pretty cool.

Read more on hiking in La Plagne here.

This is my bucket list so far, I have some more that would potentially be hikes I want to do but this list is my definite ones to do.

  1. I’d love to do the Inca trail, mainly because it leads to Machu Picchu too so getting there after hiking the trail would be very satisfying. The walk of the gods would be satisfying to do I’d imagine also. Hiking hasn’t been something that’s strongly appealed to me even with travelling but I realised that a lot of the breathtaking views that you can set your eyes on come from hiking experiences so I’ll probably make more of an effort to do so. Also it’ll give me a bit of a workout so why not πŸ˜‚ Good way to spin off from your holiday costs post from the other day

  2. This is a really good post, I enjoyed reading it. I’ve never been on a hiking trip but am keen to do one very soon. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have to be honest, hiking is not my thing at all! But if I ever did get into it, I love the sound of the Walk of the God in Italy – those views of the Amalfi coast are fabulous πŸ™‚ Lisa x

    1. I understand it is not everyone’s thing! πŸ™‚ The one in Italy is more relaxed and I don’t think it feels like a hike at all! Thank you πŸ™‚ xx

  4. I used to do some hiking with my family when I was younger and it is something I’s like to get back in to. You get such a sense of freedom when you’re doing it and the views can be breathtaking. The places you’ve mentioned in this post look amazing.

      1. It was lovely to do this growing up. I have lovely memories of it. I remember going up Scafell in The Lake District and watching a plane fly past below us! Amazing views. πŸ™‚ xx

  5. I hated hiking for years but got into it last year! All of these places look amazing!! Wow, I can imagine the amazing views from all of these places. My favorite is still the Manoa Falls in Hawaii. Thanks for sharing!
