The 6 main tools of a Nordik Walking Station
- Marked Nordic walking routes
A dozen Nordic walking routes are proposed by the Station, allowing you to practice all levels. The routes are marked out in the same way as ski runs with a colour code (green, blue, red, black) corresponding to the difficulty of the route (number of kilometres and altitude difference). Each course has its own number, which is also indicated on the tags.
- Nordic Walking Workshops
These are technical courses designed for training, to improve technique and specific abilities (endurance, power, regularity, etc.). Example: coast course, split course. Specific exercises, written by a sports coach, are proposed for each workshop. You will find them in free access on the website, at the reception base and in the field (sign).
- Reception centre
This convivial space includes changing rooms and showers, the presentation of the courses, the advice of an instructor, computer terminals to enter your times on the Nordik Walking Station website or download your gpx track. In some Stations you will also find: a relaxation area, a fitness room, a test area and sale of equipment, etc..
- An entertainment and internship program
Throughout the year, the Nordik Walking Station offers Nordic walking outings, courses of all levels supervised by specialized coaches, stays, etc. Find all this information on the site or at the base.
