NORDIC WALKING BORMIO
This is the new trend in sportive walking. It represents a new and revolutionary scientific method of movement whilst immersed in nature. One walks with specific poles following a faster pace, allowing 90% of the muscles to be used and reducing the physical force by 30%, as well as consuming 46% more compared to traditional jogging.
The activity will start on Monday with two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon, dedicated to learning or in-depth study of the Nordic Walking technique. Tuesday there will be a whole day excursion according to the ability of the group with lunch in a shepherd's hut. Wednesday, an outing of two hours in the morning and the afternoon dedicated to a regenerating course in the Thermal Baths of Bormio. Thursday, a high altitude walk in the morning and climbing in the afternoon. The programme for Friday is an entire day excursion and a barbecue.
Mule tracks, steep rises and descents and hair-pin bends at an altitude of 1,500 meters are only some of the trials you will have to pass. You will also have the possibility of appreciating the traditional hospitality of the people in the mountains in the shepherds huts and refuges. In a continuous passing of panorama and different terrains, you will follow the old footpaths, across bridges and through high mountains passes. The proposed itinerary has different levels of difficulty and therefore the groups will be divided into BASIC and ADVANCED.
The national instructors take care of the in-depth study and knowledge but can also transform themselves into expert guides and will show you the little secrets of the mountains in absolute security.
For groups of at least 6 people activities can be organized in other periods.
