A European Code of Good Walking

Codes of good walking exist in many countries. It is neither possible nor desirable to try to harmonise these codes. They have developed over long periods of history and are often based on experience and practice.

The Foundation supports the objectives of the European Ramblers’ Association. 


If you want to subscribe for the ERA Newsletter send a mail to secretariat(at) to get on the list.

Walking is very popular. All over Europe more and more people tie their boot laces during their holidays and leisure time, and discover a variety of natural beauties on foot.

The special quality certificate of ‘Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe’ offers a transparent system of criteria for the improvement of trail quality throughout Europe.

What is walking?

A typical walk:
•    has a duration of more than one hour,
•    has been planned in advance,
•    uses appropriate resources,
