While hiking, you’ll be surrounded by the most wonderful scenery any country has to offer. Instead of busloads of tourists swinging their selfie-sticks and waiters waving laminated picture menus in 15 languages in your face, you’ll likely encounter heat and bitter cold as you walk under the glaring sun and in freezing rain pelting down with furious might. You’ll traverse through luscious greenery and across unrelenting grey rock, and revel in the beautiful panoramas as a reward for an exhausting uphill scramble buffeted by violent gusts. Yet strangely enough, when you’re hiking, you’ll love almost every minute of your time spent outdoors. We definitely do.
