Why hiking has become so popular and how to incorporate it into your future travels
Spending time outdoors isn’t anything new, but as the world has dramatically changed over the past year it seems that more of us are spending our free time on long, challenging hikes. Many of us are currently only allowed outside once a day for exercise – so it makes sense to take full advantage of this and make the most of our time outdoors. For many people, enjoying longer and more challenging walks has led to a keen interest in hiking. Not only are long walks good for our physical health but being among nature and spending time walking in the great outdoors can work wonders for our mental health, helping to boost creativity, relieve stress and even make us happier. When frequent travel becomes possible once again, how can we incorporate our new love of hiking into our future travels?
