The term ‘hiking’ does not only cover the activity of wandering in the forest with a map or GPS. It means so much more than that, and if you’ve ever been hiking before, you should know that. In this article, we collected a few very – and I mean VERY – strange types of hiking, which some of you haven’t even heard of before. Feel free to try any of the below-mentioned activities and share your experience with us! (And no, hitchhiking is not a type of hiking, don’t let the name fool you!)
Yes, you read that right. Nude hiking is an activity preferred by actually a lot of people from all around the world. Considering that it also has an unofficial annual celebration (June 21 – Unofficial Naked Hiking Day) I’d say it’s a very popular form of exploring the forests and the national parks. If you want to have a fun day, leave your clothes at home, and hit the road (or hiking trail), but please, avoid children! I guarantee, that this will be the day you won’t ever forget (probably because someone will call the cops on you).
Basically, llama hiking means nothing more than being accompanied by a llama while hiking. Llamas are quite friendly and make a good hiking buddy. They are very good listeners and won’t disagree with you on any matter. If you’re bored with your dog, just buy a llama to hike with – it will definitely add some new colors to your life. Also a great way to get the children out of the house – parents say that children are more willing to go hiking when a llama is involved as well.
I mean, why not?! What’s the fun in the good ol’ forest anymore? Let’s just start pushing the limits and experience something truly awesome. Glacier hiking is a very serious business though – you need to have special knowledge and buy some fancy equipment if you want to engage in this kind of activity. From one day to the next you won’t become a glacier hiker. Plus, you probably won’t become a glacier hiker master in Hungary either.
That is something everyone can do. The absolute barrier-free, non-discriminating way of hiking happens in your own head. It all depends on you, how, where, when and with whom you hike. So, take the imagination-train to Neverland and explore the wilderness with all its elements! You won’t get any fitter from it though.
