THESE ARE THE 10 BEST HIKES IN EUROPE

THE BEST HIKES IN EUROPE

Are you one of those people who assume Europe is simply concerning stunning cities and history? Let me tell you that there’s much more to this continent than sightseeing. while it may be hard to find as many remote mountain ranges as there are in Asia or South America, Europe boasts world category hiking opportunities. From hut to hut routes to multi-day camping & hiking adventures, you’ll find almost about anything during this small and compact continent. These are some of the best hikes in Europe that are worth both your time and energy.

1.Valbona to Theth, Albania

One of the most beautiful hikes of Albania is, the hike from Valbona to Theth. You will start walking from the village of Valbona in the Valbona Valley National Park and slowly make your way through a small part of the Northern Mountain Range of Albania to end up in Theth. Albania is slowly getting a small boost of tourism, it’s not in the form of thousands of people at the same time.

In this hike from Valbona to Theth, you will cross wild rivers, see the most wonderful views and pass the Valbona pass of almost 1,800 metres. There are old, authentic villages, little bars at the houses of locals, and plenty more things to see.

hiking in Albania is the true, authentic wilderness that can still be found in this area. If you’re deep in the forests of the Valbona Valley National Park (which you won’t do on this hike), you can even find bears, wolves and lynxes. It’s a mesmerising national park, one of a kind that is rare to find in Europe.

The hike from Valbona to Theth will take you around six to seven hours depending on your fitness, but it’s truly worth it. When you’re visiting Albania, you have to make the time to go to the northern part of the country to visit one of the several mountain ranges. It’s an unforgettable experience.
