Hiking & Trails

One thing a trip to Europe will have is plenty of walking. As we have mentioned many sights are old and require walking to get to them but it’s not all drudgery, taking a walk in one of the cities neighborhoods soaking up the activities of the locals shopping at the street markets or sitting in cafes. Strolling through beautiful gardens where people relax by fountains or down along a boulevards or a narrow ancient street.  Notice the architecture of the buildings and how different they are from your home towns buildings. Waking around an old medieval villages of an old castle that has been standing for centuries. Yes, there can be a lot of walking but most of it is all enjoyable when you can do it at your own pace and not someone else’s.Walking tours are one of the most popular tours in and around major sightseeing areas. City walking tours are offered several different ways for a half day or full. You don’t have to take a walking tour to enjoy an area. Just walking around a city’s neighborhood by yourself away from the crowds and absorbing the culture can be a real treat.Hiking has always been away to enjoy the European rural country. The Alps are a favorite because of the incredible scenery. Thousands of trails exist throughout Europe and some mark and commemorate an historic event or route taken.

Climbing is also popular activity in the Alps, Carpathian and Pyrenee mountains.

As in the US there are many hiking trails. Hiking is a very big activity amongst Europeans and why not, they have incredible scenery and history to hike through.

 E-Paths…

E-Paths are European Long Distance paths that run for hundreds of miles across multiple countries. These routes are similar to our Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trails. They run from the Atlantic coast to the Carpathian Mountains and the Black Sea and from the North Cape in Scandinavia to Crete in the Mediterranean Sea in the south.
