This ultimate hiker’s bucket list, from the celebrated Appalachian Trail to Micronesia’s off-the-beaten-path Six Waterfalls Hike, treks through 100 energizing experiences for all levels.
Filled with beautiful National Geographic photography, wisdom from expert hikers like Andrew Skurka, need-to-know travel information, and practical wildlife-spotting tips, this inspirational guide offers the planet’s best experiences for hikers and sightseers. From short day hikes–California’s Sierra High Route, Lake Agnes Teahouse in Alberta, Norway’s Mt. Skala–to multiday excursions like Mt. Meru in Tanzania and multi-week treks (Egypt’s Sinai Trail, Bhutan’s Snowman Trek, and the Bibbulum Track in Australia), you’ll find a hike that matches your interests and skill level. Crossing all continents and climates (from the jungles of Costa Rica to the ice fields in Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Parks), as well as experiences (a wine route through Switzerland or moose spotting on the Teton Crest Trail in Wyoming,) there is a trail for everyone in these pages. So pack your gear and lace your boots: this comprehensive and innovative guide will lead you to experience the best hikes of your life!
This is not the type of book you read cover to cover, but you flip through and admire the photos, adding to your bucket list as you go. The book includes hike descriptions covering every continent, with hikes you’ve heard of before and those you’ve never considered. Each hike is described and includes information on distance, length of the trip, the best times to go, and the difficulty level. Additional information includes what to know before you go, what you’ll see, historical information, wildlife information, cultural information, post-hike activity recommendations, and of course, the beautiful pictures National Geographic is known for. I do like to hike and have hiked while traveling before, but these hikes give me new experiences to dream about!
