If your shoes could talk, they’d tell stories that even your passport stamps would envy. Hiking is one of the best ways to discover the remote, unspoilt areas of a place, taking you far beyond the city. Head away from San Francisco and into Yosemite National Park, outside of Bogotá and into the Andes, and from the mainland to secluded Scottish islands. If all you need is a backpack, a good pair of boots and cheering conversation, these TRIPS by Culture Trip will stand up as the best group hiking trips in the world.
1 . Walk canyons, desert and mountains in Jordan
You came to Jordan to explore Petra and you’ll leave the country thankful that it wasn’t the only site on your list. This immersive, nine-day group hiking trip goes far beyond the rose-pink Nabataean city and offers you the opportunity to trek through Jordan’s western edge. Your boots will return home with soil and sand from the Dana canyons, the Umm Al-Biyara trail, Mount Haron and Wadi Rum – all of which will leave impressions from sole to soul.

2 . Hike beyond Tbilisi to the breathtaking edge of Georgia
Georgia is gorgeous and the best way to see its beauty is on a small-group hiking trip. You’ll trace the border beyond Tbilisi, exploring the country’s edge at Lagodekhi National Park, the Kakheti region and the Caucasus Mountains. To say you’ll work up an appetite is an understatement. Thankfully, you’ll be no stranger to Georgia’s cuisine by the trip’s end, sampling everything from the traditional fare in Tbilisi’s Old Quarter to wine and bread made following millennia-old practices.

4 . Ramble the rugged hills and mountains of the Hebridean Isles

5 . Stroll your way to a classic cup of coffee in Colombia
How far would you walk for a perfect cup of coffee? You can let that answer brew a bit as you hike through Colombia’s Cocora Valley with a handful of other coffee connoisseurs. The trek is far from challenging; so much so that after you reach the coffee farm, you’ll be raring to go for another java journey. Never fear: you won’t be without a cup for long on this trip. A hike into the Andes’ Zona Cafetera will put you right in Colombia’s coffee-growing region.
