Exploring cities is what most of us do, but there is so much more to see then buildings and museums. Getting off the beaten path sometimes means immersing yourself in the beauty of nature. Today we bring you 5 of the coolest hiking trails around the world.

  1. Inca Trail

Location: Peru 

Distance: 26 miles (43km)

Best time to go: June – August

This hike is iconic not only because of the amount of beautiful views of the mountains, but also because you get to see rivers, ruins and the Machu Picchu. This trail is loaded with nature and history, so if you are into both this should be your next stop. 

2. Grand Canyon Rim-To-Rim 

Location: Arizona, USA

Distance: 48 miles (77 km)

Although this is one of the classics, Grand Canyon is also one of the coolest.

There are many trials in Africa, but Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the best hikes in the world. If you find yourself in Tanzania, hiking the hightest Mountain in Africa is a must!
