I have been walking the Way of st. James and it is a great mixture of seeing good architecture, experiencing the culture, meeting people, sleeping in cheap accommodation, spending times in the nature, walking, and generally having fun. I have found this way of traveling (walking + a lot of extra) very appealing because just hiking itself can be sometimes very mundane. I would like to know if there are any other travel scenarios that include walking in an unique atmosphere, similar to the one I described. I am merely not asking about ordinary walking trails as there are dozens of them out there.

could you elaborate, or be more specific in terms of countries? There are thousands of roads and hundreds of countries - as it stands, this question is still very broad. –  Mark Mayo Mar 4 '12 at 22:00
    
What Mark said. At the moment this question is too vague, please do edit and then flag for reopening; perhaps clarify what to you mean by 'a lot extra' and where. List-style, open-ended, vague questions are generally not allowed on StackExchange sites. –  Ankur Banerjee Mar 5 '12 at 2:31

I am not sure what it is you are looking for but you can simply look at old pilgrim routes

Of which there are plenty. There are specific pilgrimage holidays, which for some reason doesn't include Israel, but I'm not complaining.
