Top 35 Favorite Hiking Quotes


Feed Your Mind and Soul. Hike More.

I love hiking.  I love the freedom it gives me.  It feeds my soul with wonders and eases my mind. My mum used to tell me that people with moles on their foot are "Laagan," a Bisaya word that means someone who likes to wander or, as I rather see it, an "Explorer" or "Traveler." I am one and I'm proud to be one.  I love wandering with nature and getting lost in its natural beauty.  We are all born to see things and explore life with nature.  I consider it as one of the purest gifts from life for everyone.

I have here a list of my favorite hiking quotes.  These quotes inspire me to go hiking and enjoy the great outdoors.  I believe that when life gives you lemons, you put your boots on and YOU. START. HIKINGLet's go!

Itinerary Reminders:

1. Flight Details
Make sure to write down your booking reference number, be at the airport two hours before your flight, and allocate time for your travel to the airport.

2. Accommodation Details
Write down your hotel/motel/resort/BnB booking number. Contact your place to inform them around when you'll be arriving — it really does help.  Also, ask if your accommodation has any discounted activities.  You'd be surprised!

3a. Transportation
List possible times your bus/train/boat arrives and leaves so you don't miss an activity.  Always give yourself an extra 30-45 minutes in case you get lost, get stuck in traffic, or are looking for parking.  Better early than late.  Of utmost importance: check for the last trip and fares!  So you still have time and money to get back.

3b. Car Rentals
Take note of your pick-up address and time allotted.  Our last car rental told us to bring the car back by a certain time with a certain amount of gas.  Allot money for fuel and parking.

4. Budgeting
Set aside a minimum and maximum spending amount for meals, transportation, entrance fees, activities, souvenirs, and emergencies.  3 meals a day + snacks add up quickly, so keep track!  As well as tips for restaurants and activities.

5. Activities
Call to confirm your booking(s) a day or so beforehand.  Set alarms and/or calendar reminders for things you plan to do (i.e- bungee-jumping, river-rafting, or even city/food tours).
