Even the most hardcore hikers need to relax sometimes, right? So sitting down to a few hours worth of movies about hiking seems like the perfect way.

There are heaps of hiking-related films around – 127 Hours is one of my favourites – but thanks to the internet there are a bunch that you can watch online for free. I admit they’re of varying quality but I’ve gathered 7 of the best ones, ranging from around 5 minutes to an hour in length.

I guess I should warn you guys in advance that one of them does contain nudity. If you think you might be offended, maybe head back to the Bushwalking Blog homepage and find something else to read. To everyone else, happy viewing.
