48 of the Worlds Greatest Hiking Trails ...

Hiking isn't everyone's cup of tea vacation-wise but some of the World's greatest trails take you to places you'd only ever see in photographs. Up hill and down dale, skirting lakes, glaciers and lava fields, being sprayed by mist from cascading waterfalls, seeing the world from a high mountain top, being your own boss and with maybe just Mother Nature for company, there really is nothing quite like hiking. Especially if you set out to conquer one of these great hiking trails:
