Nordic walking is a very fashionable sport that's easy to enjoy and guarantees close contact with nature
Sports lovers and health enthusiasts now have a new passion in Lignano Sabbiadoro as well: Nordic walking.
Grab those ultralight poles and wear comfortable clothes: that’s all you need, and you're ready for a long walk on the beach, along the lagoon or in the shade of maritime pines.
Nordic walking has reached the beaches of Lignano Sabbiadoro from far-away Finland, offering all those who wish to stroll without putting in a great deal of effort or requiring technical or physical preparation to enjoy long walks in the open air with a slow, steady pace.
In fact, anyone can practice Nordic walking, and while it's a great workout for athletes, it is also an opportunity to go outside and rediscover the joy of moving around for those who are more sedentary.
Anyone can go Nordic walking in Lignano in total freedom and autonomy, but a basic Nordic walking course is recommended to learn the basics of posture control, foot use, pole function, active arm work and pace adjustment.
Indeed, Lignano Sabbiadoro has a group of people who are passionate about this sport and wanted to enjoy their Nordic walks in the company of others. This gave rise to the Lignano Nordic Walking Association; it organises basic Nordic walking courses, with excursions on the beach and around Lignano throughout the year as well as special events such as moonlight walks and women-only walks.
From June to September you can join free Nordic walking tours with instructors organised by Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni every Tuesday starting at 08:00 from the square in Terrazza a Mare.
Registration is mandatory and can be done in one of three ways:
- by calling +39 348 8734734
- By going to the Lignano Sabbiadoro Gestioni info point in the square in front of Terrazza a Mare, promenade Trieste 5.
