Hiking Vacations

Hiking Vacations

Hiking is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. It usually takes place on trails in areas of relatively unspoiled wilderness.

Off-trail hiking is often called ‘bushwalking’, ‘bushwhacking’ or ‘bush-bashing’. Overnight hiking is more specifically called ‘backpacking’.

Hiking Vacations are a form of adventure tourism. Hiking is one of the fundamental outdoor activities on which many others are based. Hiking is the only way to reach many beautiful places overland.

Enthusiasts regard hiking as the best way to see nature. It is seen as better than a tour in a vehicle of any kind (or on an animal; see horseback riding) because the hiker’s senses are not intruded upon by distractions such as windows, engine noise, airborne dust in large quantities, and fellow passengers. It has an advantage over standing in one place because the hiker may cover a wide area.
