Nordic walking, in step with Nature

Nordic walking makes a trip through the mountains a unique experience which is worth trying. It’s a gentle way of getting to the heart of the environment, respecting its silence, of finding yourself among arable pastures, snow-capped peaks, clear streams, green meadows and the whistles of marmots. Nordic walking means the pursuit of total wellbeing for everyone.
