Overseas

Summary

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.

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.

Castle Rock Loop, McMurdo Station, Antarctica

I worked for the Australian Antarctic Division in 2009/10 and undertook this walk whilst transiting through the US base, McMurdo Station, on route to Casey Station. We were not given permission to do the full loop and walked half way and returned. I just wanted to share although I know that it is not accessible to everyone.

Coast to Coast - United Kingdon

A 17 - 20 day walk, broken at with overnights at quaint English villages, and a couple of bigger towns. Average day is 20ks, and starts in St Bees on the West Coast and finishes in Robin Hoods Bay in the East, cover three national parks. Some days are very long and challenging, some quiet easy. Beautiful scenery. Some navigational skills are helpful, but there are some good guide books available. The trail is not well marked, but quite popular in summer months, recommend a good level of fitness and some back to back long hike training.
