Flight of Fancy podcast: World's best places for hikes - where to go

Is there any better way to see the world than on two feet? Walking is humankind's oldest form of transport, the most basic and rewarding way there is to get around. There's just no better feeling than strapping on your boots, loading your supplies on your back, and heading out for a hike in the great outdoors.

And there are so many adventures out there to be had. You can trek the Camino de Santiago in Spain. You can hike the Inca Trail in Peru. You cross deserts, beat a path through jungles, climb mountains and skirt coastlines with nothing but your hiking boots to get you through.

This is what awaits those who choose to walk. It's peaceful, it's beautiful, and it's a highly rewarding way to see the planet. It's also cheap, and open to pretty much everyone.

On this episode of Flight of Fancy, the Traveller.com.au podcast, I'm joined by fellow writers and hiking enthusiasts Flip Byrnes and Rob McFarland to talk about travel on two feet. We're covering everything there is to know about seeing the world in a pair of boots, from the simple pleasure of seeing a foreign city at walking pace, to the challenge of multi-day treks into the great unknown.
