10 Backpacking Destinations That Will Be Popular in 2017

Dec 2, 2016

Backpacking is a special kind of travel that takes perseverance and a can-do attitude, but unfortunately so many of the popular places to backpack nowadays are actually filled with backpackers! Gone are the days where you could just walk onto a trail and see no one for weeks, at least that is the case for the most popular destinations.

While these destinations are popular for a reason, they are also overhyped, which is why these ten up and coming backpacking places are expected to be more popular in 2017, but still quiet enough to enjoy the experience.

1 Porto to Algarve, Portugal

Portugal is a beautiful country and although many people think of Lisbon first, Porto is a stunning city and has a great walking route to Algarve along the coast, then end up near the border with Spain.

Not only is this a beautiful place to backpack, but also it is perfect for those who want to make use of public transport on a long journey. Because it is so well-linked between the two, it means it will not be nearly as crowded, however, it is gaining more traction so in the next year it will probably be vastly popular.
