Nat Geo Presents the Most Epic Day Hikes in the World


There is nothing like backpacking through remote locations, spending days on the trail, and camping in the backcountry each night. But sometimes you don't have time to get away for an extend period of time, but still want to spend some time on a trail nonetheless. That's when a great day hike can come in handy, and if you're looking for some good ones to add to your bucket list, National Geographic is here to help.

Nat Geo has compiled a list of the best day hikes from around the world, with stunning options to choose from in Norway, New Zealand, Egypt, and beyond. On the list, ou'll find trails that will take you into the mountains, past glacially fed lakes, through deserts, and across some of the most spectacular landscapes on the planet. Best of all, each of the routes is only a single day's commitment, which means you'll be back in a warm hotel and enjoying a great meal by the end of the day. 

I'm not going to ruin the list, but I will reveal that the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand earned a spot in line-up, as did the Mauna Kea Summit Trail in Hawaii. After that, you're just going to have to read the article to discover the rest of the routes for yourself.
