We all know Australia is the place for bushwalking... New Zealand has some good tracks too... but surprisingly the rest of the world has some places worth visiting too! (imaging that!)

This is the place to share walks from outside of Australia/New Zealand.

Cape Armitage Loop, McMurdo Station/Scott Base, Antarctica

From McMurdo Station walk along road to Scott Base and then out onto the sea-ice and return to McMurdo Station. Once again, just sharing this walk that I did whilst working in Antarctica. I know that it is not accessible to everyone.

Hard

caranca gorge

This is an excellent walk up caranca gorge In the French Pyrenees, eventually leading unto Spain if you choose. There is a refuge near the highest point which is a good spot to stay whether returning to your start or continuing into Spain. Lots of scary cliff hugging path carved out of the mountain side and a of walk ways hanging above the river. Eventually you emerge onto Alpine pasture and forest.
