There’s more to Montenegro than beaches and old towns. This tiny Balkan country also packs a punch in the hiking arena, and is home to the incredible Durmitor National Park full of challenging mountain and valley hikes.
There's more than one must do hike in Georgia. The 4-day Chuberi to Mestia hike in Georgia's Svaneti region offers up moody forests trails, dozens of snowcapped mountains, challenging mountain pass ascents and descents, river crossings, quaint villages and of course, wonderful Georgian hospitality. And you might just have the trail all to yourself.
The Tatra Mountains may not be as famous as the Swiss Alps or the Italian Dolomites, but they are among the best mountain ranges in Europe. Find out my favourites hikes in the Tatra Mountains in Poland and Slovakia.
There’s much more to Turkey than Istanbul and Cappadocia. If you get off the well beaten tourist path, you’ll discover ancient ruins, hot springs, castles and some of the friendliest people you’re likely to meet in your travels.
While Georgia is becoming very popular as a summer destination owing to its hiking trails, it’s also a destination that shouldn’t be missed in the wintertime to experience excellent ski resorts, awe-inspiring mountains, and hearty food.
