20 Classic Day Hikes

Cliffs of Mohr | Ireland, 2009

Twenty classic day hikes in twenty different countries.

Alpine lakes, waterfalls, Saharan sand dunes, volcanic moonscapes, 2000 year old walls and a big red rock right in the middle of Australia!

I have had the good fortune of doing all of these hikes between 1995 and the present day. None of the walks are beyond the capabilities of your average hiker, and all are easily transport accessible.
