It’s a hell of a long walk, but it’s worth it. Join dedicated trekkers from all over the world as they take on up to 400 miles of trail that winds through the Pyrenees Mountains in northern Spain and southern France. Hikers have been walking this pass since the Medieval Age, with the ultimate goal of reaching the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, the end of the Christian pilgrimage. Depending on how fast you go and where you start, it can take up to 5-6 months. Watch the 2010 film The Way, starring Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, for inspiration. Go independently with a solid map (it’s well marked), or take a 12-day section hike with On Foot in Spain tour providers if you’re pressed for time. ($3,524; onfootinspain.com)
