Discover some of the most beautiful and remote landscapes in these bucket list treks. Hike magnificent trails, reach towering summits or just enjoy the journey from A to B completely under your own steam.  Whatever your journey and your pace, these treks are sure to give a great sense of achievement. 

1. Inca Trail

As a pilgrims' path, the Inca Trail is truly an undertaking and it's worth every step. Wandering through Incan ruins, wide sweeping valleys and colourful cloud forest, the trail offers you peace and tranquillity, as well as the challenge of reaching 'Dead Woman's Pass' - the highest point on the trail. Numbers on the trail are capped, and we follow a different, quieter route - our camp locations and timings are just out of sync with the crowds. You can walk a while with only the occasional porter running past but there's always plenty to keep your mind off your feet and on the spectacular surroundings.

2. Tour du Mont Blanc

One of Europe's most famous mountains, and the highest in the Alps, Mont Blanc is surrounded by high pastures, and glaciers; it's best enjoyed from the many paths that surround it. The Tour Du Mont Blanc is a hiker's dream; well-marked paths, comfortable lodgings to rest after each day, fantastic food and, of course, incredible scenery. This trip is perfect for enjoying in a group or on our Self-Guided Tour du Mont Blanc.

3. Jebel Toubkal

The highest mountain in north Africa, and near enough for a weekend-warrior getaway, Morocco's Jebel Toubkal is great trek for anyone looking for a summit over 4000m. The path winds along the valley, through villages and over beautiful mountain passes. Toubkal offers a great chance to discover Berber culture while taking in the splendour of the High Atlas Mountains.

4. Annapurna Sanctuary

One among the many giants that make up the Himalayas, the Annapurna range offers a quieter alternative to the Tibetan Plateau. The Annapurna Sanctuary is an enclosed glacial basin beneath the snow-capped peaks of some of the world's highest mountains. Starting out in the valleys of the foothills among the rice terraces, you'll climb through rhododendron and bamboo forest, past waterfalls and stay in Nepali tea houses along the way to the Annapurna Base Camp.

5. W Trek

In Chile lies one of the world's most remote hikes - the 'W' Trek in Patagonia; so-called for the shape of the path you follow in Torres del Paine National Park. The walk takes in giant glaciers, turquoise lakes and, of course, the spectacular pinnacles that mark the Patagonian skyline. This low-elevation trek's challenge comes from the longer days and steep inclines to reach viewpoints, including the vista of the granite Paine Towers. The views and wilderness experience make the effort worthwhile.

6. Walk of the Gods

On Italy's western coast is one of the country's most beautiful walks. The coastal trail known as the 'Walk of the Gods' takes you along the Amalfi Coast, between Bomerano and Positano, following an ancient path. You're led under limestone cliffs and past stone farmhouses towards a stone stairway that leads down to picturesque Positano. With stunning views and well-trodden paths, the 'Walk of the Gods' is a great trail accessible for even less-seasoned hikers.

7. Mount Kilimanjaro

Africa's highest mountain, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro tops many a bucket list. Taking on such altitude is a real challenge, and this is the appeal of Kili for walking enthusiasts. Opting for the Lemosho Trek route means the greatest chance of success, giving you longer to acclimatise and take in the beauty of the mountain and the vast plains that surround it. From camping under star-lit skies, or spotting colobus monkeys in the trees, to watching the sunrise over the plains from the summit; this is a once-in-a-lifetime trek.
