My name is Peter Elia, also known as 'The Man Who Hiked The World'. I'm a Lonely Planet and BBC featured journalist & photographer who travels the globe in search of incredible walks from the path less travelled.

I love nothing more than to inspire my audience. I'll hike any distance, anytime, anywhere to capture the imagination of the reader. From ​Off-the-beaten-track destinations, secret corners of the world and unusual angles on well-known places, I'll be there to share my untold stories.

My adventures have been featured in; BBC TravelLonely PlanetThe Independent, BBC Countryfile Magazine, The Guardian, The i Paper and elsewhere. In addition, my Instagram themanwhohikedtheworld has grown to a loyal community of 75,000 followers.
