The approx. 10 km long “Legendary Water” nordic walking eco trail is located on the Alpe di Siusi.
Nordic walking was originally developed as summer training by professional cross-country skiers and biathlets, researchers and a hiking poles manufacturer in the 1990s. It is easy to learn and exercises the whole body - legs, arms, shoulders, upper chest and back muscles are trained. Moreover, it helps to reduce stress in the knees and other joints. The poles, however, provide further stability. In addition, this sport demonstrated not only to have physical, but also psychical benefits. As you might imagine, the landscape of the Alpe di Siusi and its surroundings are perfect for nordic walking.
The 10 km long “Legendary Water” nordic walking eco trail belongs to the trail network of the Alpe di Siusi Running Park. The theme path combines the aspects of nature, health and ecology. The circular trail starts at the Camping Alpe di Siusi and leads to the Pond of Fiè and then through the woods of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park (trail no. 2). Once you have reached the Alpe di Siusi Cable Car, the paths no. 7 and 7a take you back to the starting point near Fiè allo Sciliar.
We recommend you to take some training lessons before you start your first nordic walking tour or if you would like to improve your technique. Courses are offered by the ski and snowboard schools of the Alpe di Siusi or by Alps Activ in Siusi allo Sciliar (phone: +39 0471 727909). Have fun!
