International 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.
The world’s first Friendship Trail was established by the Jeju Olle Foundation in Korea. This visionary project has spread across the globe.
