Because it’s Friday: Web Hiking the Alps

Have you ever looked at pictures of the Alps and wondered what sights you might see if you had the time and the energy to go walking there. Well now you can get a great view of the what you might see thanks to a site offered by WebWandern.ch which apparently means Web Hike.

There are 10 stages and 130km for you to explore, recorded in HD by hikers travelling from Thusis (Switzerland) to Tirano (Italy). With an interactive map to show you were you are and links to places of interest it’s really well done.

The soundtrack is pretty amazing too, because the hikers have managed to stay silent throughout so all you experience are the crunch of boots and the ambient noises of the area.
