Walkers & Nordik Walking
Nordic Walking is an emerging sport in Mallorca. It is suitable for all ages and consists in walking with poles that are especially designed for the activity you are engaging in. It requires some skill to adequately execute the exercise. Therefore we recommend that you take a beginners’ course with a qualified coach who will teach you how to perform the movements with precision and thus obtain the desired benefits. More and more companies offer courses and guided tours through the geography of Mallorca as part of complete and specific tourist packages. You can practice Nordic Walking all year round even though we recommend you to avoid high temperatures during summer.
- Nordic Walking Circuit: 7km from your apartment
Mallorca has the first Nordic Walking park in Spain. It was created recently in the municipality of Alcúdia. It offers different itineraries with three levels of difficulty. The ‘Es Barcarés’ green route runs along the coast and it is an easy walk. The La Victòria route through the Mediterranean forest offers panoramic views. The Coll Baix route is a difficult walk. It finishes at the small cove of es Coll Baix, a privileged setting that can only be reached on foot or by boat. The enviable natural spaces with numerous hiking routes and the island’s beaches are ideal for Nordic Walking. They offer many itineraries of different lengths and difficulty.
All in all, Mallorca is an ideal setting to take your first steps in the practice of this sport or continue your training in a location that is committed to sustainability. The island offers many possibilities to complement your sports holidays. In Mallorca you will discover a rich cultural, natural and gastronomic heritage unknown to many visitors.
