Top 7 Untravelled Paths Hiking Locations

a

The Great Outdoors are calling, and we must go! Sadly, with many of us under lockdowns of varying degrees of restricted movement, that is not really an option. Still, the urge to go out there is greater than ever, so let’s take a virtual stroll. Here are Untravelled Paths’ best locations for hiking.


Accursed Mountains, Albania

Located in northern Albania, the Accursed Mountains are arguably Europe’s best kept hiking secret. The “easiest” way to get there is via the stunning 5-hour Koman Ferry ride. Then, an hour transfer to Valbona which is your first point before exploring further into the Accursed Mountains. From there on, it’s a neverending stunning scenery with tall peaks, flowery meadows, and the freshest air you could encounter. See more…


Atlas Mountains, Morocco

Often overlooked as a hiking destination, Morocco is home to the vast Atlas Mountains. Offering some fabulous hiking, you can immerse yourself in the setting and Berber culture. The Toubkal Ascent is the region’s most popular hike which is a mere two hours from Marrakesh. It’s certainly no walk in the park, especially if the summit is still snow-capped. See more…


Carpathian Mountains, Romania

Transylvania offers far more than Dracula’s Castle. Beautiful medieval towns and quaint rural villages pepper the countryside. There is also some incredible hiking full of sweeping landscapes, an array of wildlife, and lush green meadows. See more…


Drakensberg, South Africa

Located in South Africa’s Natal Region and bordering the small landlocked country of Lesotho, Drakensberg is one of the country’s premium hiking locations. Our experience includes a couple of days for hiking for the outdoor lovers. Inn truth, you could spend so much more time here exploring the breathtaking outdoors. See more…


Durmitor, Montenegro

Montenegro is renowned for its coastline and rightfully so, but it’s the often-overlooked mountains that are taking the cake. With the country being so small, any visitor should make time to explore inland. Durmitor National Park and its stunning Black Lake (feature image) is the country’s best hiking destination.

Julian Alps, Slovenia

When you say Slovenia, you think green pastures, fresh air, and stunning scenery encouraging any visitor to explore the outdoors. Naturally (no pun intended), it makes a perfect destination for hiking. The Julian Alps are located in the north of the country by the borders with Austria and Italy. As a fun fact, there is a viewpoint where all the borders meet. See more…


Simien Mountains, Ethiopia

It’s not the “Tabletop of Africa” for nothing. Ethiopia is home to many of Africa’s mountains and it is the Simien mountains and its Gelada monkeys that are a must-see for any visitor. An incredibly diverse country that offers so much culture and tradition; all of this inevitably against a backdrop of amazing scenery. See more…
