Sunshine Coast Trail

British Columbia, Canada

Sunshine Coast Trail

British Columbia, Canada

A testament to what devoted locals and volunteers can achieve, the Sunshine Coast Trail showcases 180 scenic kilometres running along the coastline, through the mountains and past the lakes of BC’s northern Sunshine Coast. It’s Canada’s longest hut-to-hut hiking trail, and the only free one—forged and maintained by the Powell River Parks & Wilderness Society. Trekkers can explore routes from a few hours, to a full day, to a week or more—overnighting at the 12 huts and 20-odd campsites along the way. (Troubridge Hut is our top choice.) If you have 10 to 12 days, try the whole route in one push! However you explore, it’ll be clear why we chose this gem for our list.

Skyline Trail

Alberta, Canada

Skyline Trail

Alberta, Canada

The 42-km-long Skyline Trail is Jasper National Park’s signature backpacking trail—a scenic showpiece that meanders above the treeline for more than half of its distance. Expect a workout—elevation gain from Maligne Lake is more than 1,200 metres—but it’s worth it, as one of the most stunning of all hikes in Canada’s Rocky Mountain national parks. Pack your camera—this trek is home to woodland caribou, grizzly bears and grey wolves. While some intrepid folks have jaunted through the trail in a day, most spend two to three days in this high-elevation (2,510 metres maximum) environment to truly appreciate its beauty. The trailhead is at Maligne Lake; backcountry permit is required for camping. The trail is linear, so book transport with Maligne Shuttle.

Bruce Trail

Ontario, Canada

Bruce Trail

Ontario, Canada

You can certainly try to hike the entire 885-km-long Bruce Trail in one non-stop effort. People have done it. But most tend to bite off smaller chunks—a day hike here, a weekend there, camping or staying at hotels and B&Bs along the way. Revel in the lush Carolinian forest, enjoy views of Lake Ontario in the south and Georgian Bay in the north, and generally appreciate the serenity along Canada’s oldest and longest continuous footpath. Some of the most remote trails are found along the Peninsula Section; the views from the Blue Mountains are jaw-dropping; and routes along the Niagara Escarpment lead to world-famous wineries. Waterfall hunters should head to the Iroquoia Section—but really, you can’t go wrong on the Bruce. (And the fall leaf show is spectacular!)

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Peru

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Peru

One of the best-known hikes on the planet—and practically a rite of passage for any true backpacker—the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one part high-altitude slog, one part cultural excursion and one part life-changing revelation. A typical trek on this classic 88-km route takes about four days—guided tours are your best bet of getting a slot, as it’s limited to 500 hikers per day. Starting at 2,800 metres, you’ll reach a high point of 4,200 metres—expect reduced energy—as you approach the mystical Inca City in the Sky. (This is where the life-changing part comes in.) High-season is May to September—however, hikes run year-round and spaces are easier to find in the shoulder months.

Fitz Roy Trail

Argentina

Fitz Roy Trail

Argentina

Arguably Patagonia’s most famous hike—the route toward 3,359-metre-tall Monte Fitz Roy impresses with vistas over dozens of glaciers and staggering scenery that typifies this legendary region. (The apparel company Patagonia uses Fitz Roy in their logo!) Located in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, and accessed from the town of El Chalten, a typical Fitz Roy trek is about four-days, with around 1,200 metres of elevation gain. Weather changes by the minute—expect anything from bluebird to freezing. Most go guided, but the trail is well-marked—adventurous self-guided trekkers can feel free to explore at their desire.

La Ciudad Perdida

(Lost City Trek)

Colombia

La Ciudad Perdida

(Lost City Trek)

Colombia

Located deep in the jungle, in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, this challenging 44-km jungle trek beckons the adventurous. Constructed by the Tayrona between the 8th and 14th centuries, this “Lost City” was only re-discovered in the 1970s. Today, you’ll need to hire a tour company—which is nice, as porters can carry your gear while you ford streams, scramble up steep slopes, fight off mosquitoes and even get a chance to meet the indigenous Kogi who live in the region. The payoff at the end is immersion in an area forgotten by time—and ignored by tourists who think Machu Picchu is the only Lost City on this continent.
