Ten awe-inspiring routes you need to travel along at least once in your life

Many of us have been on relaxing and comfortable trips abroad, with our flights, hotels and food already conveniently arranged for us. But you’re only ever going to feel the real spirit of adventure if you head of somewhere with nothing but a rucksack on your back. That’s the only way to really get to know a foreign land, as well as get to know you’re own inner strengths and resourcefulness and truly feel that you are part of the wonderful world we live in.

 To encourage you to seize the opportunity, we picked out some of the most incredible footpaths you can take into the wild in various countries of the world.

The Haiku Stairs, also known as the Stairway to Heaven, is a dangerous path made up of 4,000 steps running through the mountains of Oʻahu island in Hawaii. It was made by American soldiers during the Second World War to help them reach the various pieces of radar equipment they had placed on the mountain tops. From time to time, the local authorities close the dangerous path to the public, thought this hasn’t deterred various intrepid hikers. Just remember, if you go there, don’t look down!
