New Zealand – Tongariro National Park

One of the best ways to explore nature and immerse in an unrivalled visual smorgasbord of landscapes is through hiking. Here are some treks – from the shortest to the longest – that we think you should traverse at least once in this lifetime.  

Pulpit Rock, Norway – 8km

Dangle your feet over a 640m-high sheer precipice – if you dare – and admire the stunning and unobstructed view of Lysefjord from Pulpit Rock.
