This is one of the nicest pages I’ve ever written, because is full of dreams, hopes and pleasant vibes. So, it’s also one of the msot dynamic and one that is ever changing. Or better still, I don’t normally change, I just add more and more.

This page is a list of the destinations I’d like to go to, the ones I’ve spared a little thought for and the trips I’ve already planned in detail. There are routes and trails I’d like to walk on foot, with my backpack, with a smile.

Can I do it? I think so!

Scandinavian Peninsula

  • Lyngen Alps, in Norway, where you can find glaciers, lush valleys and fjords. Lyngerfjord has been certified as a Sustainable Destination.
  • Trip through all coastal Norway on foot, from Kristiansand to Kirkenes. Norway has a special place in my heart and I’ll find a way to explore it well, at my own pace!
  • Sarek, Muddus and the other Swedish national parks.
  • The trekking trail Höga Kusten, the High Coast of Sweden, UNESCO World Heritage.
  • Åland Islands, in the Baltic sea between Finland and Sweden.
  • The hills, the woods, the rivers and the wooden cottages of Urho Kekkonen national park, in Finland
  • Trip through Lapland on foot, from Rovaniemi (Santa’s greetings might be unforgettable!) heading to the North, passing the Swedish and the Norwegian borders until reaching Kautokeino, Karasjok and Maze.
  • Flåm Railway, one of the most spectacular train journeys in the world.

United Kingdom and Ireland

  • Jura Island, in Scotland
  • Glencoe and isle of Skye, in Scotland
  • Lewis and Harris, which together make up the largest island in the Outer Hebrides, with the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village.
  • St Kilda, the remotest of British Isles, part of the Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. The only accomodation on the island is a small campsite and it’s not very easy to go to, but I know there’s a ferry from Skye so… I’ll make it!
  • Scottish Highlands hiking trails, that looks like a bit vague, but… it’s spoilt for choice!
  • The Wicklow Way, just South of Dublin.
  • The wild Dingle Peninsula, in Ireland. I’d also like to try to compete in DAR one day, just to have fun and experience this amazing place from a different point of view.
  • The unspoilt and charming Beara Peninsula, in Ireland.
  • The Ringwood forest and the Jurassic Coast, along the Southern coast of England, with its emblematic Durdle Door.
  • The Cotswolds, a paradise for hikers and bikers in England.

Worldwide islands

  • Faroe Islands, where I’m going trekking following these majestic routes, taking part on local feasts and on a Heimablídni.
  • Go deeper into Iceland with: the central deserts and highlands, Vatnsnes Peninsula (Hvitsekur troll rock, the seals in Ósar, Geitafell restaurant), the Eastern fishing villages and fjords, Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
  • Falkland Islands, its penguins and the rest of the entrancing fauna and untouched nature. Maybe combined with Patagonia…
  • Japan, one of my top 5 desires for years. I’ve collected lots of infos, tips, weird places to visit and faboulous trails to hike, so I think ‘ll have to write something about, or… to go and test them all!

Rest of Europe

  • Trekking in Portugal, that I’ve already planned in details but I’ve had to give up. But I think I’ll take it in my own hands soon! In the meanwhile, I’m writing some post about the hiking routes in Portugal and some daily trips in Lisbon and its surroundings.
  • Trekking into the Black Forest (Schwarzwald), in Germany
  • The German Romantic Road, that can easily be walked on foot with a walking trail. It takes from 3 to 4 weeks to get from the start to the end.
  • Rügen Island, because it has an inner sea and an outer sea and because I used to watch the adventures of Robbie the Seal on tv when I was a child!
  • Peak of the Balkans Trek, among Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo
  • The Cathar trail, along the Pyrenees
  • Trekking in the Basque Country, with the incredible stairway of Gaztelugaxte
  • Andalucia and the village of Setenil de las Bodegas

World

  • Go back to New York and go on to Pennsylvania, Niagara Falls and Canada.
  • Mexico, with Mexico City, the villages of Puebla and Cholula, Yucatan Peninsula, Desmidero canyon, Sant Xobà de la Casa.
  • The Nabatean Trail, from Dana to Petra
  • Vladivostok, with its bridges, its lighthouses and its islands
  • The Great Ocean Walk in Australia, e the whole Australia in general, maybe walking these trekking routes.

And so many other places…
