9 Classic walks around the world

From the craggy clifftop trails of Italy's Walk of the Gods to a nine-day trek through the remote mountain sierras of Nepal's Annapurna massif, here are some of the most iconic walking tours to tick off your bucket list.


Camino de Santiago, Spain

Embark on an unforgettable 155km pilgrimage along the spiritual Camino-Frances trail in Spain. A patchwork of undulating green countryside stretches as far as the eye can see, and rural farmland snakes past medieval villages. Sample gastronomic delights en route with local delicacies such as Melide's famous 'pulpo a la Gallega octopus' and make a toast to a fun day on the trail with delicious local wines. Santiago Cathedral marks the final destination of this holy journey, but the memories of this unique trail are never-ending.

Walk of the Gods, Italy

The 'Walk of the Gods' along Italy's Amalfi coastline certainly lives up to its name. Renowned as one of the most scenic walks in Europe, the sky-high coastal path skims the clear blue heavens above and offers vast views over glistening topaz seas. Below the trail, lush green terraces cascade down the cliffs towards crescent bays speckled with dazzling white yachts, and colourful flower gardens lead the way to rustic fishing villages and waterfront promenades.

Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Trek

Climb to the highest point of Africa on our scenic Lemosho Trek up Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. Follow your expert local mountain guide as you hike through the lush forests, grassy moors and volcanic rock fields of this iconic walk. On summit day, we rise early and wind our way up the steep scree-strewn sides of the crater under the cover of darkness to the crater rim. As we reach the top, our efforts are rewarded with a breath-taking view of the sun rising above the clouds below us; a sight you'll never forget.

Inca Trail Trek

The iconic Inca Trail is on many hikers' bucket lists, and for good reason. Hike for three days through glistening dewy cloud forest, wander along fizzing rivers and ascend looming mountain valleys before arriving at the infamous Inti Punku (Gate of the Sun). Feel your heart skip a beat as you lay your eyes on the ancient temples of Machu Picchu for the first time, and gaze in wonder at the lush green terraces of this sacred Lost City in Peru

Annapurna Trek, Nepal

This challenging nine-day Annapurnas Trek in Nepal is not for the faint-hearted, but its dazzling show of majestic mountains and snow-dusted peaks lure walkers in for an adventure of a lifetime. Far removed from fast-paced modern life, nature is the star of the show here. Mighty valleys carve their way towards the vast natural amphitheatre of Nepal's Annapurna Sanctuary, and colourful prayer flags dance in the swirling winds.

Kumano Kodo Trail, Japan

Japan may not be the first place you think of for classic walks, but the ancient forest trails of Kumano Kodo are adorned with the great Buddhist shrines of Hongu Taisha, Nachi Taisha, and Hayatama Taisha that should be on every hiker's must-see bucket list. Join a trip in the autumn to witness a kaleidoscope of red and orange autumn leaves ablaze across the rural mountains.

Take a walking tour of the Transylvanian Alps, covering the unspoilt countryside of Romania.

W Trek Patagonia

Patagonia's W trek, so-called because of the trail's w-shaped route across the Torres del Paine valleys, takes you from the pristine glacial waters of Lago Grey to the three iconic jagged pinnacles of Paine Towers. Hike along the shores of luminescent turquoise lagoons, scramble up steep rocky ascents and walk in the shadow of towering granite peaks. As night falls, we'll retreat to a mountain refuge campsite, top up the energy reserves and reminisce about the day's spectacular sights before another action-packed day tomorrow.
