Nordic Walking Courses
Nordic Walking is an endurance sport and outdoor exercise that involves walking with the help of canes similar to those used in skiing.
It´s the fastest growing recreational physical activity today. Originally from Finland, as a summer method training among cross-country skiing.
Currently used as part of coronary and pulmonary diseases prevention and in multiple rehabilitation programs.
Nordic Walking is a form of walking that includes not only the action of the legs as in normal running, but also the upper body, with two special canes, designed only for this modality.
We organize Nordic Walking courses following the 10 steps Methodology of INWA (International Nordic Walking Association), also called diagonal or traditional technique. It is the most widespread technique in the world and on which most of the scientific studies have been carried out.
The ultimate goal of Nordic Walking is to maximize health benefits, minimizing the risk of injury.
Would you like to do a Nordic Walking initiation course with us?
We encourage you to learn a very healthy and fun physical activity to perform in groups.
The initiation courses are carried out with qualified instructors, both in Bilbao and from the Rural House Ulle Gorri in Untza (40 minutes from Bilbao and 20 from Vitoria-Gasteiz), in a magnificent, flat environment with spectacular views of the mountains and mountain ranges that surround it.
After a first approach to the Nordic Walking technique, a guided tour is carried out, full of history, traditions, curiosities and culture both in Bilbao, discovering it bridge by bridge or from the Ulle Gorri rural house with a tour along Gorbea the Sea of Meadows .
We will love to guide you through this new physical activity that we are sure will surprise you.
* During the winter, with snow, it can be organized guided walks with snowshoes to some of the beautiful places near the Baserri, including a guide, required equipment (rackets and canes) and insurance.
