Hiking abroad is a great – and sustainable – way to explore your surroundings anywhere in the world. As you travel, exploring both the local nature and culture gives you a more complete picture of your destination.
Arimo Travels is a sustainable travel blog. Hiking abroad has never been a main focus of the blog, but I wrote a bunch of blog posts about my hikes during my 2-year trip around the world. Hiking – day hikes in particular – require very few accessories, so it’s a great hobby for both travelers and those who have settled down.
I’ve only written one guide post about hiking: Amateur Hiking Tips for Day Hikes. It’s one of the earliest guides I wrote for Arimo Travels. It’s not one of my best guides, but it does give a few very basic tips. During my travels, I also wrote the following blog posts that are more or less related to my hiking experiences abroad:
- Day Trip to Ulu Temburong National Park
- Hiking in Tonga (‘Eua Island)
- I Found Paradise (and It’s Called Gokarna)
- Pictures from Taroko National Park, Taiwan
- Slovak Paradise & High Tatras – Trekking High And Low
- Uluru – My New Favourite Destination in the World
- Visiting Mount Bromo without a Tour
- Visiting Victoria Falls in February
- What’s There to See in Tansen, Nepal?
I am an avid hiker, but that does show on Arimo Travels. I have posted some hiking photos on my Instagram page, but otherwise I’m not really interested in reporting about my hikes abroad. For me, hiking is about absorbing my surroundings with my own senses.
I love trekking in the national parks of Finland, but I don’t usually take pictures during my hikes. I like to be present in my surroundings, and planning a future guide or blog post would take away from the experience.
