In the Netherlands, they have the Lange-Afstand-Wandelpaden, in France the Grand-Randonnée, in Portugal the Grande Rota and in Spanish the Gran Recorridos. These are the enormously long hiking trails that are all linked together and that can let you discover the whole of Europe if you want to. Then there are the hut-to-hut tours, via ferratas, the Steig routes in Germany and the endless trails in our own UK. And the very best multi-day hiking in Europe?
