Fit-Walking is stamina hiking, health training, stress-relief and healthy movement in the open air, all rolled into one. Beginning with a power-walk start from the set-off point at Bagni di Lavina Bianca in Tires, we decelerate to a slow-walk speed as we approach the Wuhnleger Lake, with the Catinaccio Mountain reflected in its waters. A small mountaineer’s refreshment awaits you there, where you can fortify yourself with the balance drink and regional products from Tires.

 

From there we take a loop-route back to Tires. When we move both our arms and legs while walking, numerous muscles are brought into play; breathing becomes deeper, blood circulation improves and oxygen supply increases.
