Explore the vast landscapes in a variety of single day walks to grueling month-long treks to some of the most remote and unspoiled spots on the globe. We ranked the world’s best hikes by popularity, exclusivity and breathtaking scenery.


Kungsleden, Sweden

Inside the Arctic Circle hides the last remote wilderness in Western Europe. In Sweden’s extreme North runs Kungsleden, the “King of Trails,” a 275-mile route through an impressive landscape of birch forests, hidden glaciers, powerful rivers, and the highest mountain in Sweden. Running through four national parks and a nature preserve, hiking its entirety requires a month or more, but you can cover quite a bit of impressive landscape in a week.
