Alpine Fitness and Nordic Walking
Light workout training for the body - Nordic walking derives from the summer training techniques of professional cross-country, biathlon and Nordic combination sports athletes.
Nordic walking has not only very quickly become a fashionable activity, but also one of the healthiest sports in general.
The idyllic Val Martello / Martelltal in the Stelvio National Park offers a network of trails that will satisfy
even the most demanding enthusiast!
Nordic Walking is the therapeutic endurance sport par excellence. It was originally developed as a summertime training method for high-performance athletics competing in cross-country skiing, the biathlon, and Nordic combination. Over the years, it has come to enjoy widespread popularity. The idyllic Martell Valley situated in the Stilfserjoch National Park features an outstanding network of trails with plenty of fantastic natural scenery. It's thus the ideal place to enjoy Nordic Walking. When you practice Nordic Walking, your natural gait is supported by the rhythmic use of poles. This reduces the stress to your joints (the poles absorb much of the impact). Because it's so easy to learn Nordic Walking, it's also suitable for non-athletes and the elderly.
Trail Running is another kind of sport you can enjoy in the Great Outdoors, along the idyllic paths and verdant alpine meadows of the Stilfserjoch National Park.
Trail Running aims for greater distances. It's a different form of mountain running, and an excellent training method for ambitious sportsmen. You proceed across fields and through woods, and while you're doing it, you're not only increasing your stamina and promoting good health – you can also enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty of the mountain paradise in and around our hotel in the Martell Valley.
Come and discover the incomparable beauty of Mother Nature in the Martell Valley – while at the same time enhancing your fitness and having fun.
So put on your running shoes, grab your poles, and start!
