Top 15 Motivational Hiking Quotes

As the walking and hiking holiday experts, we love hiking quotes!

Nothing inspires us more on a Monday morning to get out on the trails than a hiking quote which speaks to our adventurous souls.

Every week on a Monday (#MotivationMonday) or sometimes on a Tuesday (#TravelTuesday) we have been posting on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, little gems of quotes we have found around the web.

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of our top 10 hiking quotes as decided by our team of hiking enthusiasts.

We also hope you enjoy the great photos we have gathered from our walking holidays on the Canary Islands!
