Lace up your boots
There is no better way to get off the beaten track than by lacing up your boots and heading off along the twists and turns of a mountain pass or by wielding a machette to break through jungle foliage. Time, determination and a readiness for challenge required.
So many of our destinations provide 'perfect trekking playgrounds' with gold star prizes at the end to keep you focused and motivated despite the blisters and altitude!
So, starting with the best of the best...drum roll please for Machu Pichu - come on, who doesn't have this on their bucket list? Who doesn't want to arrive at dawn to see the spectacular Inca settlement in all its glory?
Then there's Namibia who serves up a great desert trek with the prize of the Orange River oasis at the end or if Bear Grills is your bag you can test your jungle survival skills in Borneo.
