Hiking Trails

We continuously conduct hikes in various countries/regions (for example Iceland and the Alps) and of varying difficulty (including scrambling and via ferrata) to make trail routes and descriptions available for all readers. We also explain how you reach the starting point of each trail (whether by car or public transport) and what equipment you might need. Some hikes are very demanding and should only be done by the physically prepared while others can be done by families with kids.

Ratitovec Altemaver Trail – Hiking the Alps

In the beginning of 2019, we spent several days in snowy Slovenia and of course leaving the country without hiking was not an option. We really wanted to climb some high peaks in the Alps but after a brief research we figured out that that’s not the best idea. There was a lot of… Read More »

Skopos Trail on Zakynthos Island in Greece

Greece is mostly known for its cultural heritage and beaches, but the country also offers beautiful nature for outdoor enthusiasts to explore. We were so fortunate to go to the Ionian island of Zakynthos (also called Zante) in the middle of October when the weather was great, but not too warm for hiking. After a bit… Read More »

Cima Setsass Trail near Cortina d’Ampezzo – Hiking the Alps

For our third hike in the Dolomites we decided to ascend the peak called Cima Setsass from the Valparola pass which is located only 22 kilometers from the beautiful town of Cortina d’Ampezzo. Cima Setsass is 2571 meters high and very popular because the trail to the top is not technically difficult and thus… Read More »

Moesgaard Strand Trail near Aarhus – Hiking Denmark   Recently updated !

At first glance Denmark does not have much nature to offer to hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. However, with some effort you can find good hiking trails also in Denmark.

Ulstrup Creek Trail near Aarhus – Hiking Denmark   Recently updated !

In Denmark it is very hard to find good hiking trails because the country has very little nature in general. However, we really liked the Mols Bjerge National Park when we were hiking there in March and therefore we decided to do another hike in that area. We planned an approximately 9 kilometers long… Read More »
