Backpacking is low-budget, independent, see-the-world, off-the-beaten-track travelling. Averse to lugging luggage and to the bland, packaged nature of the commercial tour, backpackers prize the mobility that their packs give them, and would never trade their pack for a suitcase, no matter how many wheels it had. Although many tools and techniques are similar to the wilderness hiker, backpacking is more about exploring the world than appreciating natural beauty.
