Suggest me a 5-10 day hike (North Africa or Europe)
So, my brother and I want to go hiking in mid-July and need some suggestions on an awesome hike.
We're not that experienced (but are both reasonably fit). We'd preferably like to avoid really cold weather (snow etc) or really rainy weather.
So, where should we go?!
However, North Africa will be hot. Very hot. As will a lot of great Mediterranean hiking routes. So you probably either want to go with mountains (the Pyrenees sound awesome, or there's some great hiking in Bulgaria), or go north, such as Scotland, Norway, or the Baltics.
What are you looking for? Do you want remote regions with few people, good camping, and natural beauty? Or are you looking for a region where towns are about a day's hike apart, and you can stay each night in a pension? A busy hiking tail or pilgrimage route like the Camino del Santiago, where you'll meet lots of other hikers, or a little used path where you can go days without seeing anyone?
If you're looking to camp, the Nordic countries are great because of their land use laws, which allow you to camp pretty much anywhere, as long as you're at least 150m from a house, the land isn't fenced in, and you clean up after yourself.
Bernese Oberland - Switzerland
Mont Blanc Circuit
Camino - as suggested above.
Aigues Tortes in the Spanish Pyrenees
Picos de Europa - Northern Spain
Around the Matterhorn - Switzerland
Serra de Tramuntana - Mallorca
some are quite high, but that will be a blessing in July as will be cooler.
