The Best Hikes in the World

for every type of hiker

Hiking is for everyone. Whether you enjoy short day hikes or long distance treks, you’ll find inspiration for your next hiking adventure here. We’re curating the best hikes in the world one trail at a time. Find out where to hike below. 

Perfect Montenegro Itinerary - 2 week road trip, Durmitor Mountains
Day Hikes
It’s easy to incorporate day hiking into your travel itinerary. Pack water, sunglasses, and some snacks and you’re pretty much all set. Here are some of our favorite day hikes: Adolf Munkel Trail in the Dolomites (Italy); Bobotov Kuv in Durmitor National Park (Montenegro);  Mt Ruapehu Crater Lake in New Zealand.
Best Hikes in the World - Culinary Hiking | Moon & Honey Travel - the hiking blog for travelers
Culinary Hikes
Culinary hikes are those that combine the art of food with the beauty of nature. Imagine going on a wine tasting hike through the Ahr Valley, Germany’s largest red wine region. Or, perhaps rewarding yourself with a delicious Rösti after a spellbinding hike in Appenzell, Switzerland. Dining and hiking go hand in hand in the Tierser Alpl mountain hut in the Dolomites.

Hut to Hut Hikes
Hut to hut hikes are multi-day hikes where you overnight in rifugios (mountain huts, Hütten) along the way. We’re obsessed with hut to hut hiking in the Alps. You don’t have to bring any food, or heavy camping gear with you. Use these itineraries for inspiration: Triglav National Park Traverse (Slovenian Alps) and Schladminger Tauern High Trail (Austrian Alps). If you’re just starting out, you don’t have to commit to a long hike. Consider this 3-day hut-to-hut hike in Tre Cime Natural Park in the Italian Dolomites. Or, this 2-day hike in the Hochschwab Mountains of Austria.
Best Hikes in the World - Long Distance Trekking | Moon & Honey Travel - the hiking blog for travelers
Long Distance Hikes
Long distance treks are lengthy multi-day hiking trails. What is deemed “long distance” is entirely subjective, but let’s say it’s over 10 days. Depending on the destination, you would either be backpacking, or hiking hut to hut (aka inn to inn). Because some of these long-distance routes total 5,000 km (3,107 miles), these trails are broken up into stages. So, you could hike a segment or chunk of a long-distance trail, without having the hike the whole thing. Annapurna Circuit in Nepal is an approachable long-distance hiking trail. Other famous long-distance treks include the Via Alpina (Europe), Te Araroa Trail (New Zealand), and Via Dinarica (Western Balkans).

Via Ferrata Hikes
A via ferrata (Klettersteig in German) is a protected climbing route. Many high alpine trails in the Alps involve via ferrata segments. You need specific via ferrata equipment to tackle these climbs. Via ferrata routes can be very challenging, even with the steel cables, ladders and fixed anchors aiding your ascent, or descent. We encountered several via ferrata segments during our Kamnik-Savinja hut to hut hike in Slovenia. We highly recommend joining a guided via ferrata day hike, before trying it for the first time.

  • Hey friends! We just redesigned our homepage (moonhoneytravel.com) We‘d love to hear your thoughts! Link in bio.
  • There’s one trip we keep day dreaming about. It’s a trip that we would repeat in a heartbeat if we could. Our two week adventure in Montenegro was pure magic and we finally published our itinerary. Link in bio.
  • One spectacular morning in California. #inyocounty #californiaroadtrip #highway395
  • When we visited Mono lake, we expected the whole lake to be dotted with tufa towers. It’s not. If you’re visiting, head to the South Tufa Area for the best views and the most concentrated area of these remarkable columns of calcium carbonate.
  • The impressive Red Cliffs in Red Rock Canyon State Park. These cliffs are located directly off Highway 14. If you’re ever nearby, definitely stop here and also hike the Hagen Canyon loop trail (30 min). You’ll walk by gorgeous rock formations and many joshua trees. #california
  • Soaking in natural hot springs with a view of the White Mountains on one side and the Eastern Sierra on the other. #californiaroadtrip
