Continuing our quest to find the 20 Best Hikes in Europe, we asked the German outdoor magazine, airFreshing.com, what they considered to be one of the finest trails. From reading the below, it’s easy to see how their five-day tour of the Rosengarten Group in the South Tyrolean Dolomites made the pick.

In our mission to find the 20 Best Hikes in Europe, we asked Belgian outdoor magazine Op Weg to share their favourite trail on the continent.

The Grande Travesata delle Alpi (GTA) is a magnificent, 1000 km long trail across the ‘wild west’ of the Italian Alps.read more
