Walking is a highly underrated activity. Many people assume you must do strenuous activity in order to keep fit and healthy. But this is not always the case.

Walking is fantastic exercise for many reasons. It can help in reducing blood pressure, aid weight loss and strengthen muscles. It can also help prevent diabetes as well as colon and breast cancer. Not only this but it is a great stress-buster, helping with your mental health as well as physical health.

Walking is also a fantastic way of experiencing the outdoors while you exercise, allowing you to soak up nature, landscape and fresh air. For this reason, it has become a very popular way of traveling and seeing the world.

Many tour operators offer walking holidays to some of the most beautiful places on earth; from the Inca Trail in Peru to the Himalayas to the French Alps and the rugged coast lines of Northern Europe.

Walking holidays allow you to really experience a country up close as you become acquainted with locals as well as seeing all the best historical and cultural features of a country. Not to mention the landscape and flora and fauna of your chosen destination.

If this wasn't enough, walking is much more environmentally friendly than any other form of transport.

Walking holidays are also a great way of meeting new people from all walks of life (pun most certainly intended) while having fun along the way.
