Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking – A Healthful Pleasure for Visitors of All Ages

Even though this popular sport comes to us from Finland – for us South Tyroleans, Nordic Walking is certainly nothing new. Our ancestors used poles when climbing mountains. Back then, long distances had to be traversed on foot; a steady speed and a rapid pace were essential if one was to begin from the valley floor and reach the top in time. Today, Nordic Walking is a synonym for experiencing nature close up, outdoor fun, vitality, relaxation, and well-being. The use of the arms and poles means that your whole body gets a work-out. It's good for your cardiovascular system, helps reduce tensions in your neck and shoulders, promotes the oxygenation of your blood, and helps burn calories. For healthiness, fitness, and reducing weight, Nordic Walking is the way to go!.

When it comes to hiking, too, the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones vacation region offers a wide range of superlative options. To begin with, here you'll find Europe's largest Nordic Walking park. A network of more than 275 km of trails (from "easy" to "moderately challenging") marked with signposts will take you to countless attractive destinations.
