Hiking is a popular pastime for tens of thousands of people throughout the world, it’s a great way to see the sights when on holiday or even just for a day out.

It’s a great way to keep fit but without the impact injuries and long term damage associated with running. People of all ages and abilities can go hiking and there are well mapped hiking routes and maps which you can buy to help you on your way.

Hikers and walkers are  a breed of their own and consider life outdoors to be a second home, often found out on hillsides or up mountains, deep in woodland or along river valleys, hiking is big business and the equipment that goes with it is an industry in itself.

A great deal of preparation needs to take place when hiking in areas where the weather can suddenly change and some hiking routes can be extremely dangerous to the less experienced hikers and walkers. Each year, areas such as the Lake District in northern England is home to dramatic rescues when people fall victim to severe changeable weather, so great care should always be taken when embarking on a new trek or adventure.
