Nordic Walking

Renew yourself from the inside. Indulge in incredible landscapes in new ways.

Everyone can take part in Nordic Walking. It offers tremendous health benefits because nearly 600 muscles –almost 90% of the body's muscles– move in harmony, which aid in oxygenating the body and strengthening the immune system.

This recreational option improves our health and is beneficial to our wellbeing. If you enjoy caring for your mind and body, IBEROSTAR hotels are a perfect fit! Join us in learning this simple yet powerful workout technique in some of the world's most magnificent natural environments.

Relax and care for yourself without sacrificing a beautiful outdoor vacation.

  • Equipment

    • EQUIPAMIENTO:

      Lo único imprescindible para la práctica del Nordic Walking son los bastones. Es buena idea tener en cuenta unas recomendaciones a la hora de elegirlos.

      Un buen bastón de Nordic Walking está hecho de una pieza y suele estar compuesto de fibra de vidrio y carbono. Cuanto más carbono, más caro, ligero y rígido suele ser.

      Lo más llamativo de un bastón de Nordic Walking es el sistema de la solapa, especialmente diseñado para la práctica de esta actividad. Se adapta perfectamente a la mano y no se pierde incluso abriendo la mano. La punta suele ser muy afilada y de acero.

      Debemos prestar atención a la talla del bastón ya que es importantísima para que la actividad sea beneficiosa para nuestro cuerpo. Generalmente se calcula la talla mediante la siguiente fórmula: Altura x 0,66. Usualmente el valor del cálculo se suele redondear hacia abajo, (es preferible un bastón más corto que uno demasiado largo al empezar). Otra forma de elegir la talla del bastón es poner el bastón sin el pad en el suelo. La salida de la solapa tiene que estar entonces en la altura del ombligo.

      Debido al gran éxito del Nordic Walking en Centroeuropa, se puede comprar todo tipo de equipamiento para la práctica de esta actividad: zapatos de Nordic Walking, guantes, ropa etc. Todos estos artículos son útiles pero no imprescindibles. Con ropa cómoda y unas zapatillas de deporte se puede perfectamente iniciar la práctica de este nuevo concepto de movimiento.
