The travel guru discusses the adventure that fueled his newfound love for hiking

Rick Steves can point out the balconies in Milan where Mussolini gave speeches.
He knows where to order the tastiest mangalica in Budapest, Hungary.
And for more than 40 years, he has researched European travel for his popular guidebooks and television show, amassing a sizable fan base with his intricate knowledge of history, culture, and cuisine.
Prior to 2021, however, Steves had largely overlooked one major side of European travel: the great outdoors. That changed in September when Steves went on a six-day trek through the French Alps.
