Nordic Walking’s concept was developed on the basis of off-season ski-training activity while using one-piece ski poles.
Therefore Nordic Walking is a form of physical activity, where regular, natural walking is enhanced by the addition of the active use of a pair of specially-designed Nordic Walking poles.
However, the characteristics of natural, bio-mechanically correct walking and appropriate posture are maintained in all aspects.
Technically correct use of poles actively engages the upper body into the act of walking, to propel the body forward. The physical strain is distributed in a balanced and appropriate way various muscle groups of the whole body.
Compared to regular walking, Nordic walking (also called pole walking) involves applying force to the poles with each stride. Nordic walkers use more of their entire body (with greater intensity) and receive fitness building stimulation not present in normal walking for the chest, latissimus dorsi muscle, triceps, biceps, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles that may result in significant increases in heart rate at a given pace. Nordic walking has been estimated as producing up to a 46% increase in energy consumption, compared to walking without poles.
In a few words, Nordic Walking is a safe, natural, dynamic, efficient and suitable-for-all form of a physical activity that trains the body in a holistic, symmetrical and balanced way.
During the route you will sightsee scot pine forests, clear water creeks and alpine meadows, impressive granite rock formations, glacier origin lagoons, mountain wildlife and flora, and superb mountain landscapes.
