Hike: Overseas 2017-11-06T05:53:38+00:00

Our first overseas backpacking trip was in 2002 and since then we have taken 14 more. Most American hikers have heard of the heavily used Camino de Santiago but are not aware that there are tens of thousands of kilometers of fine way-marked paths in Europe; France alone has over 60,000 km of walking trails in the Grande Randonnee network. We have met few Americans on overseas hikes; we hope our reports encourage others to branch out and try something new. For inspiration, look at the hiking guides published by Cicerone Press.
