We looked for walks that travel deeper into a location’s history and culture. Sure, there’s outdoor adventure on each of these 20 hikes, but the trails also tell a rich story. So here they are, the holy grails of trails across the world…

We’ll be the greatest of friends, having adventures in spaceCriss-crossing the universe with big smiles on our faceSolving galactic mysteries, finding new planets to exploreI’ll never have a reason to be sad anymore.
And even when they all tell me that you’re really not out there…That you don’t hear my prayers, and if ya did you don’t care…I’ll always believe in you truly, with all my 8 year old heartAnd after you finally rescue me, our lives together can start.
