How do they walk cross country in your country?

In Britain, the canonical cross-country journey connects Land's End in Cornwall with John O'Groats in Caithness. Are there other nations with a route that is widely considered to be the standard end-to-end path for walking or cycling journeys? I'm especially (but not only) interested, in famous end-to-end routes for walkers across more regularly shaped countries where the route's reputation is based on something more than just length. Thanks in advance. . .
