We quit our jobs over 10 years ago and have been travelling ever since, making a point of hiking in every country we go to. Hiking is basically our way of seeing the world. Whether it’s a day hike or a multi-day trek, we have loved them all, from the Canadian Rockies to Everest Base Camp to the Portuguese Rota Vicentina to the Alta Via 1 in Italy. From the Tour du Mont Blanc (the best trek in Europe) to the Tongiriro Crossing (the best day hike in New Zealand).
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t times where things didn’t go according to plan and we needed to add some humor to the situation. These funny captions on hiking and hiking photos are perfect for when you want to add some levity.
We have also paired our favourite funny captions about hiking with our favourite hiking photos from our time hiking in Canada and on the Alta Via 1 in Italy.
