Exercise in the Nature - Walking and more

  Walking Marathon Copyright: © HSZ

Walking is an offer that makes the connection between hiking and running. A rhythmic and active use of arms and a higher step frequency make the difference. Walking is a gentle endurance sport that is easy on the joints and strengthens the cardiovascular system.
