 ‘There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country.A fine landscape is like a piece of music; it must be taken at the right tempo. Even a bicycle goes too fast.’ (Paul Scott Mowrer, The House of Europe)

Walking is an international activity and although hiking varies in popularity from nation to nation, pretty much anywhere you visit will provide the opportunity to explore with a walk should you so wish. Below are a growing collection of international walks, most of which are particularly suitable for those with babies and small children. I hope you find inspiration for that next international holiday as you browse. 

If you have a suggested walk outside the UK you would like to share, don’t forget to share it with other outdoor parents and carers on Baby Routes by adding your international walk here.
