View Full Version : Hammock hiking in Europe

Hi everybody!

I recently bought a WBBB, tarp and other hammock-related things, after the West-Highland Way in Scotland got me excited for camping and hiking. Now I'm looking for a similar hike (100-200km) that I can use my hammock on! Do you have any suggestions for me?

I'm not in the UK, but I have friends there who have enjoyed the Coast to Coast (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coast_to_Coast_Walk) walk. Pilgrims' Way (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilgrims%27_Way) is meant to be nice, too.

If you want to use your hammock, avoid the Pennine Way at all costs! :lol:

The Ardennes are my stomping grounds; I can recommend the GR57 Liège-Diekirch. This summer I'm going to hike the GR571 Vallées des Légendes myself.

Both walks roughly follow rivers through forested hills and have a lot of points along their routes that are accessible by train. You can also link some GR's together.
