Spring is slowly approaching and this means that new holidays are to be planned and new exercising plans are to come in action. Considering walking is for free and is one of the best ways to get fit, we suggest you took a hiking trip to get rid of that winter weight, get away from the busy city and go on your first well deserved holiday.


Hadrian’s Wall Path is a long-distance footpath and goes along the remains of a Roman wall, border of a forgotten empire. The walk is not too hard and much of it is more or less flat, so don’t worry if you’re not an experienced hiker. If Newcastle is somewhere you’d like to stop, it’s right on the way!


White Cliffs of Dover is another great destination for a weekend trip that is not too long or tiring but offers exceptional scenery. One of the finest coastal walks in England is only 5.1 miles (short version, main walk is 10.7 miles) but is full of stunning views of the English Channel.


Malvern Hills, Worcestershire offers a beautiful trail and it’s a great place to explore as you can see the town of Malvern from most places up the hills and it’s hard to get lost.


Ben Nevis via Carn Mor Dearg, Scottish Highlands is the highest mountain in the UK and thus this walk is only recommended for experienced hikers, partly also because visibility is often limited. Most routes incorporate two Munros and climbing this spectacular mountain is definitely worth the effort.


Bochlwyd Horseshoe, Snowdonia is a very varied route as it offers exposed arêtes, narrow gullies and broad ridges, which also makes it enjoyable for both beginners and experienced hikers.
