Friendship Trails are similar to twin towns, whereby trails in different countries team up in the name of partnership, mutual publicity and international cooperation.
Through the concept of the Friendship Trails, it is hoped this simple idea will spread across the globe, promoting international understanding and the culture of walking, whilst boosting tourism and local economies.
“This is a real opportunity to promote international friendship and cooperation. We are proud to be joining up with the Jeju Olle Trail, and hope this special relationship will benefit people, landscapes and conservation in both our countries” – James Blockley, Cotswold Way National Trail Officer
The world’s first Friendship Trail was established by the Jeju Olle Foundation in Korea. This visionary project has spread across the globe.
