But What Exactly Is This "Wiking" Trend All About?

It started in Europe and now 'wiking" has arrived Stateside. But what exactly is it all about?

 
PRLog - March 19, 2012 - ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- "Wiking" has been gaining in popularity over the past couple of years, so much so that the New York Times dedicated a whole article to it last year*. But what exactly is "wiking"?  

"Wiking" is the combination of two activities firmly anchored in a certain "art-de-vivre" (art of life) that some say harkens back to the old country, Europe itself.  In effect, it is no secret that Europeans like their food and wine and many there still consider walking the best form of exercise.  It was then just a question of time until some hikers with a penchant for oenology would combine both past-times into one, and voila! Wiking (wine+hiking) was born.

In the US too,  avid hikers and wine connoisseurs can enjoy both activities at one time. From Californian vineyards all the way to Georgia,  wiking groups are forming daily. And private companies recognize the opportunity to diversify their offerings as well.

Albuquerque-based outfitter New Mexico Enchanted Hikes has just added "Hike & Wine" outings (Wiking) to its regular schedule.  For $260 per person, participants receive transportation to/from, a 4 hour guided hike and wine tasting at a local New Mexico winery.  Packages are fully customizable. No person under 21 years of age will be allowed on a "Hike & Wine" tour.
