Hiking, Nordic walking, running: There are hardly any forms of exercise that are healthier than these. Nordic walking is the gentlest and simplest variant with the lowest threshold to begin with. The joints are not strained too much and at the same time the whole body is activated. If you move your arms in the rhythm of the steps you will train the whole body. This means using the poles opposite to the stride, stretching the arm all the way forward, and bringing the elbow behind the body when pushing off. This stretches the entire body, provides propulsion and strengthens the upper body in addition to the legs. Nordic walking is suitable for everyone, from the sporty person to the trained contemporary. From slow walking to running with the poles, the speed can be chosen individually.
No matter if you would like to walk along the Saalach promenade or over the hills and through forests, or use to cable car to get up to 2,000 metres above sea level and start your walk from there: Nordic walking and running are possible on almost all paths where you can find hikers. To make the start easier for you there are 12 marked running and Nordic walking trails which only wait to be explored by you.
