Take advantage of the altitude training effect with some Nordic walking in Lech am Arlberg in the Austrian Alps!
Nordic walking is a type of endurance sport and is suitable for many different age groups and individuals. Nordic walking is based on the technique used in cross-country skiing (with the use of sticks) and therefore the shoulder and upper arm muscles are used and trained. The pace and physical exertion can be individually adapted to the individual’s age and level of training. The tours follow marked footpaths and trails around Lech and last 3 to 4 hours. Overall there are 54 km of routes available
