Trek your way around the world.
Don’t get us wrong, a quick overnight in your local state park can be an experience you’ll never forget, but it can’t hurt to set your sights on the greatest backpacking trips in the world. From eating cheese and sipping espresso in the Swiss Alps to camping on the Great Wall of China and hiking along the rugged coast of Kauai, the world is full of stunning backcountry that needs to be explored. With the right plan, budget, and experience, knocking one (or all!) of these amazing trips off your bucket list is totally within reach. So check out these adventures and start planning now!
Machu Picchu, Peru
This is a great alternative to the the Inca Trail, the traditional and more famous route to Machu Picchu. This route is more challenging, more remote, and less crowded. Win-win-win.
