Video: Hiking Europe’s E5 Trail

The E5 trail in Europe runs for more than 3200 km (1988 miles), starting from the Atlantic Coast in Britany and stretching across parts of France, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany before finally ending in Verona, Italy. It is, by all accounts, a stunning hike through the Alps that can takes months to hike end to end. In this video, we get a brief taste of what that trek is like, as two intrepid travelers spend 10 days walking 120 miles along the E5. As you’ll see, the route takes them deep into the mountains, past pristine alpine meadows, and into lovely mountain villages.

If this doesn’t get your feet itching for a little walk in the mountains, I’m a afraid we’ll have to check you for a pulse.
