Top Hiking Trails in the world Kungsleden, Sweden Round-Trip: 65 miles, 3 to 5 days A hundred miles inside the Arctic Circle, Sweden's legendary 275-mile Kungsleden (the "The King's Trail") begins its traverse of the last great wilderness in western Europe. This mind-blowing northernmost section penetrates the vast Arctic landscape of Sweden through birch forests, open tundra, and big glaciers before crossing the shoulder of Sweden's highest peak, 6,926-foot Mount Kebnekaise. Queen Charlotte Track, New Zealand Round-Trip: 44 miles, 3 to 5 days A unique journey through the sunny hills of the Marlborough Sounds, the Queen Charlotte follows the dragon's back ridge that separates the blue waters of Queen Charlotte Sound from those of Kenepuru Sound. Water taxis take you from the town of Picton to the start, at Ship's Cove, where Captain Cook hung out frequently between 1770 and 1779, and the finish at Anakiwa. Tonquin Valley, Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada Round-Trip: 27 miles, 3 to 5 days Watching the sunrise light up the enormous broadside of the Ramparts, throwing golden reflections into the waters of Amethyst Lake, iš an experience worthy of any effort expended to get into this wild valley. First photographed in 1915, the unrelenting beauty of the Tonquin Valley, nestled deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, has drawn pilgrims ever since. Yosemite Grand Traverse, California, United States Round-Trip: 60 miles, 6 to 7 days This traverse is a cheat sheet of Yosemite backcountry, touching more than a few of the real high points of the Sierra in just a week, including an ascent of Half Dome via the Cable Route. An unexpected highlight is the jaunt through the extensive drainage of the Merced River, the lifeblood of Yosemite Valley, where the route traces the headwaters through waterfalls, granite basins, and channels, interspersed with sprawling, sublime sub-alpine meadows. Bay of Fires, Tasmania, TAustralia Round-Trip: 16 miles, 4 days From the start in Mount William National Park to the finish at the impressive Bay of Fires Lodge, the route never deviates from seemingly endless beaches of blinding white sand and surreal rock formations lapped by a turquoise Tasman Sea. Only the occasional headland of granite boulders, turned blood red by lichen or forested points of shoreline, pushes you up and out of the coves. The Bay of Fires walk is a four- day guided trip; you can't do it solo, as there is no water on the route so no place to overnight.
