2019: a year full of highlights

The most popular Eurohike hiking tours

Put one foot in front of the other and focus on yourself. Away from everyday stress, melt into the landscape and take a deep breath. Slow trails have been and are a trend that has been integral to hiking fans in 2019. In addition, proper hiking equipment, the perfect photo and memories for life all count.

From quiet mountain lakes and fabulous moorlands to cultural strongholds and infinite views, Eurohike hiking tours offer an endless variety of hiking trails every year. In addition to picturesque landscapes, culinary indulgence should not be neglected. Heavenly vineyards, regional delicacies and lots of wonderful oases to offer hardworking hikers a place to take a rest. Culinary delights are more popular than ever and can also be found on many hikers. After all, is there anything better than sitting on a wooden bench and putting your legs up after having done some ‘work’?

Hiking trends here, hiking trends there…2019 had a lot of tours, routes and hiking trails to offer. Thanks to the dedicated Eurohike team, countless hikers walked through the mountain world of Europe. Five trips quickly emerged as particularly popular with Eurohike guests.

Bella Italia: from Merano to Lake Garda

‘Ciao bella’ and ‘amore mio’ are clearly the leaders in the five most popular hiking tours in 2019.

The mighty rock formations of the Dolomites, the southern European way of life in South Tyrol and the glittering blue Lake Garda characterise this hiking trip from Eurohike. In addition, the South Tyrolean Wine Route, where one vineyard follows the last, provides that dolce vita you dream of on holiday.

The floating garden in the Atlantic: Around Madeira

Forests immersed in thick fog, dark lava rocks, sun-drenched banana plantations and the rushing Atlantic Ocean: this is what makes the coast of Madeira so unique. It is not surprising that this hiking tour was one of the favourites in 2019. Botanists, hikers and connoisseurs will get their money’s worth on the flowering island. In addition, a delicious ‘poncha’, a national drink made of honey, orange juice and sugar cane schnapps, will sweeten breaks.

Aiming high: around the Zugspitze

Seven days of hiking at altitude and seven days of discovering the Zugspitze from a different perspective. This is how hikers experience the popular tour around Germany’s highest mountain. There are far-reaching views with wildly romantic gorges.

Across the Alps: from Garmisch to Merano

Alps, alps and even more alps. This is what hiking fans get on the popular tour from Garmisch to Merano. The Olympic city of Garmisch-Pertenkirchen meets charming mountain huts and South Tyrolean charm. The variety across the Alpine ridges of three countries is wonderful. With good fitness, the valleys and mountains are achievable. No stone remains unturned.

Hiker on the rhine walking tour

German Rhine indulgence: the Rheinsteig from Mainz to Koblenz

Rocky cliffs, hilltop castles and a UNESCO World Heritage Site can be enjoyed by hiking enthusiasts in the Middle Rhine Valley. Sporty Eurohike guests can enjoy the full diversity of Germany. During the demanding mountain hike over eleven days, the half-timbered houses and spectacular panoramas enchant each stage.

The Filsner Lay Nature Reserve near the monasteries of Eberbach and Assmanshausen is definitely worth a visit. No wonder this hiking trip has become a real magnet for guests.
