What is a Hiking Vacation?

A hiking vacation can of course take many forms, but for most people it's a trip on which they leave their home town or city and travel to a new destination to hike, explore, learn and discover. Some of the most popular destinations in the world for a hiking vacation are New Zealand; the Alps in Switzerland, Italy, France, and Austria; the Canadian Rockies, Peruvian Andes, Patagonia, the Himalayas in Nepal, Tibet and China; Iceland; and Ecuador's volcanoes to name a handful.



Camp or Accommodations?

Many people choose to camp when embarking on a far-flung hiking vacation, but staying in a variety of accommodations can also be very enriching without detracting from the level of adventure. Accommodations can include hotels, lodges, mountain huts, teahouses (in Nepal), and refugios (elaborate backcountry huts in South America).



Backpacking or Trekking?

It's possible to go on multi-day backpacking trips at many hiking vacation destinations around the world. Most international guided tours are either portered backcountry trips or stay in mountain huts, teahouses and refugios. A portered trip can be a truly fantastic way to hike and explore other countrys. Our Cordillera Huayhuash Trek is an excellent example - it's a true wilderness trip in the second highest mountain range in the world, but porters and horses transport supplies so Wildland guests are able to hike with light day packs.
