Which ‘way’ will you take in 2020?

From historic Caminos to centuries-old ‘vias’, below are seven of the best new trips to explore on foot, the best of the UK and the continent with European active holiday specialists UTracks …

THE COTSWOLD WAY

Covering 102 miles, the Cotswold Way takes you from Chipping Campden to Bath through a patchwork of rolling hills dotted with picture-postcard villages. Quintessentially English and the country’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, visitors to the Cotswolds will find a wealth of historical interest, from ancient castles and manor houses to old abbeys and Roman villas.

VIA DEGLI DEI

A route steeped in history, the ‘Way of the Gods’ connects two of Italy’s most important art cities. It owes its name to the surrounding mountains such as Mount Adonis, Mount Jupiter, Mount Venus and Mount Lunario (after Roman goddess Lua). You will walk on an ancient Roman road from Piazza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna to Piazza della Signoria, the main square of Florence.

VIA DINARICA

Follow one of the original – and most breathtaking stretches! – of the Via Dinarica long-distance mountainous walking trail that spans 1,200 miles across seven Balkan countries, from Slovenia to Albania. Through primeval forests in the rugged Dinaric Alps, walk from Bosnia to Montenegro and take in natural sights along the way such as the heart-shaped glacial lake of Trnovacko.

MAGNA VIA FRANCIGENA

An ancient route officially reopened in 2017 in celebration of its rich historical and cultural legacy as a trade route connecting Africa and the Middle East to Europe. Travel on foot from Palermo in the north to Agrigento in the south and witness the legacies of the civilisations that have occupied Sicily over the years, from the Greeks and the Romans to the people of Byzantium and the Moors.

CAMINO PORTUGUÉS – COASTAL ROUTE

The Coastal Route of the Camino Portugués ranks among the quieter, less busy Camino paths. Travelling through Galicia, the route passes through small hamlets and eucalyptus woods, over ancient bridges and along dramatic coastal scenery. There are ample reminders of past pilgrims throughout the path, offering many insights into the religious significance of the Camino.

THE LIGHTHOUSE WAY (CAMINO DOS FAROS)

A trail created by four friends with the aim of connecting all the lighthouses of the rugged Costa da Morte, between Malpica and Finisterre. The main objective of the path has been to stay as close as possible to the coast. Following a series of small footpaths and dirt trails along stunning cliffs and long sandy beaches, you will come across almost-deserted bays which cannot be reached easily by car.

The Lake District is the most visited National Park in the country and walking is the best way to see this celebrated landscape.
