    016 Romania's Via Transylvanica: Exotic, yet affordable and convenient

    016 Romania's Via Transylvanica: Exotic, yet affordable and convenient

    The Via Transylvanica is exotic, yet affordable and convenient.  The trail crosses Transylvania and the Carpathian mountains on it’s 1400 km/ 900 mile route across the heart of Romania.  Conceived and built over just the past six years, this trail offers a complete package of both outdoor and cultural adventure.  Old european castles, wild forests and mountains, daily cultural adventures, farmers that still use horse-drawn carts, vineyards with little-known wines for you to discover, and the option for warm meals and a roof over your head every night, but also extensive signposting, a well-developed support network of guidebook, smartphone app, and social media.  I am inspired and excited by this brand new trail, and I am confident that many of you will be, also.

    015 Japan's Rokko Traverse Trail with "Sky King": accessible adventure

    Japan’s Rokko Traverse Trail, or Rokko Zenzan Jyusouro, traverses the ridge that lies just north of Kobe, Japan.  It is extremely easy to access, can be thruhiked in three days, and allows one to take public transportation to comfortable accommodation every night.  Along the route are beautiful and wild mountain ridges, a number of shrines and temples, and several other tourist attractions.

    014 Hungary's Kektura with Christine Thuermer: A perfect first thruhike in Europe

    014 Hungary's Kektura with Christine Thuermer: A perfect first thruhike in Europe

    Hungary’s Kektura is Europe’s oldest long-distance trail.  The Kektura is full of adventure and interesting experiences, and it is 1100 km/700 miles long, but it has relatively easy terrain, easy logistics, and is easy on the bank account.  In other words, this may be the perfect first long-distance trail to hike in Europe.

    013 France's GR34 with "Doing Miles": a coastal trail with culture, beautiful nature, and easy logistics

    013 France's GR34 with "Doing Miles": a coastal trail with culture, beautiful nature, and easy logistics

    The GR34 is a coastal trail in France’s most western region.  Running along the Atlantic coast, this trail is wild and beautiful, but also close to towns and facilities, visits many sites of cultural interest, is less physically challenging than many mountain trails, and has less-complicated logistics than many other long distance trails.  James and Amy, who told us about Japan’s Tokai Shizen Hodou in episodes 5 and 6, rejoin us to describe this trail and how to hike it.

    012 The Sentiero Italia with Christine Thuermer: Europe's PCT or CDT/ The sexiest trail in Europe

    012 The Sentiero Italia with Christine Thuermer: Europe's PCT or CDT/ The sexiest trail in Europe

    The Sentiero Italia may be the “sexiest” trail in Europe!  7000 kilometers (4300+ miles) of trail through wild country, high in the mountains.  It is one of the world’s longest ridge trails, walking a watershed-divide like the United States’ Continental Divide Trail.  Christine Thuermer (or Thurmer) rejoins us to tell us about this fantastic new trail and how to go and hike it.

    011 The Arizona Trail with "Rocks" and "Hopeful": Desert beauty/a shorter version of the PCT

    011 The Arizona Trail with "Rocks" and "Hopeful": Desert beauty/a shorter version of the PCT

    The Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) is an 800 mile (1300 km) trail across Arizona.  Passing through desert and mountains, it is famous for it's diversity and beauty.  Rocks, who told us about the Pacific Northwest Trail in episode 002, returns and is joined by his buddy Hopeful.  The AZT is not a beginner's trail-- it is not only long, but also remote and challenging.
