Nordic walking

A Healthy Sport for your Summer Holiday

There are many opportunities to enjoy the healthy sport of Nordic Walking in the Grossarl Valley. Many of the hiking routes and trails in the region are also good for Nordic Walking. The special poles for this type of sport can be rented from Hotel Edelweiss. A few times a week, you can join a guided walk from Edelweiss through the valley.
Nordic Walking is considered to be one of the healthier sports: up to 85% of your musculature will be activated and used during Nordic Walking. In comparison to, the amount of calories burned is significantly higher. One additional benefit of Nordic Walking is how gentle it is on your joints: without poles, a descent while hiking or walking puts a lot of pressure on the joints.

Nordic Walking Courses in the Grossarl Valley

A prerequisite for the healthy effects of Nordic Walking is proper instruction. You can participate in a course in Grossarl where you are taught on a guided hike the most important aspects of Nordic Walking. At Hotel Edelweiss we are happy to provide you with additional information about available courses that are right for you.

Group Nordic Walking Tours

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are the days of the week that feature guided group Nordic Walking tours. At Hotel Edelweiss we know the most beautiful Nordic Walking routes in the Grossarl Valley and we are happy to take you along on a group tour of these favourite routes.

Head to Alpine Pastures with Nordic Walking Poles

The 40 operated alpine chalets in the Grossarl Valley are the perfect destinations for a Nordic Walking tour. The snack that awaits you isn’t the only thing that beckons. For on the hike there you have already achieved your goal. The support of your carbon fibre poles will make your walk to the chalet that much easier. Back in the valley, the reward of a few hours in the spacious wellness area welcomes you back to the hotel.
