TOP 10 TUNES TO TAP YOUR HIKING BOOTS TO!
Hiking is all about rhythm. It’s putting one foot in front of the other – and repeating. Again and again and again.
Hiking songs are an excellent way of keeping that rhythm, while also taking your mind off whatever steep incline you happen to be ascending.
Now, some people will baulk at the idea of listening to music whilst you’re in the wilderness – and that’s fair enough – but sometimes music helps you connect with what you’re doing or if it’s tough-going, music can inspire you to keep moving…
So with this in mind, check out some of the best hiking songs and travel songs as (loosely) recommended by Life’s An Adventure. We hope to have included something for everyone!
