Included in this collection of healthy and fun holidays is the Patagonia walk across the Argentina-Chile border, which traverses mountain paths and passes through pampas grass and nearby glaciers. Another singular trail on the Paths of Pindos in Greece is situated in one of Europe's finest wilderness areas, where bear and eagles dwell on the hillsides, and meadows,alive with wildflowers and butterflies,are edged by rustic villages. Each trip featured here lasts between 7 and 14 days and is organized by a well-known travel specialist.
