Films about tourism

We have collected a selection of descriptions of films which, in our opinion, could be interesting for hikers. In this selection are collected not only the films completely devoted to the hiking. Such films (where heroes all film walk along the trail), generally speaking, not so that much. Perhaps, the most classical representative of the given genre is the film "Wild", but it is faster an exception to the rules. Therefore we did not begin to limit ourselves  and have collected a collection of descriptions of films which concern tourism in general.

The most of these films can quite be considered "inspiring" for any hikers. Or they simply will help to spend time in the evening or during journey by train or the plane.
