Find the best hiking trails in the world

We’ve put together this database so you can discover the best hiking trails in the world. There are a few questions we always get a lot. What is the best hiking trail in the world? Or: what is your favorite trail? Then we say always, every trail is our favorite! Okay cheesy, that is true, but you know what, every trail has its charm. Whether you’re hiking for months on the Pacific Crest Trail or you’re hiking for only a few days through the forest in Sweden, every trail is so different. Every experience will enrich you and therefore it’s never a good idea to compare. We can only say: enjoy every trail as much as you can! From our community, we know that these 10 trails are the most popular trails in the world: Tour du Mont Blanc, Alta Via 1, West Highland Way, Fishermen’s Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Camino de Santiago, Te Araroa, Kungsleden, Everest Basecamp Trek, and the Inca Trail. You’ll find your next trail in this extensive database, created by hikers all over the world.

Find your trail in the best hiking areas

Focusing on majestic mountain ranges and top regions for hiking, we highlight some of the world’s most stunning hiking trails in these areas. Trek the ancient paths of the Himalayas, like the Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Circuit, for beautiful views and a glimpse into sherpa life. In the European Alps, iconic trails like the Tour du Mont Blanc weave through France, Italy, and Switzerland, showcasing small mountain villages and snow-capped peaks. The Dolomites offer unique and rough paths with sharp limestone peaks and beautiful mountain huts, while the less-traveled trails of the Pyrenees provide serene, hut-to-hut hikes along the French-Spanish border. Each area is unique in its own way and of course, there are so many more beautiful areas like the Andes, the Alps in New Zealand, and the Rocky Mountains in the United States. But also smaller regions such as the Black Forest, Balkans, and Caucasus are special.
