Has anyone tried Nordic Walking? It all seems a bit money orientated to me but is it as good as they say?

Nordic Ski ing is just another name for Cross Counrty Skiing

on that subject I can recommend a very good site Toblachersee at Toblach/Dobbiaco, Northern Italy (just a few Km from the Brenner Pass road 1st main road left after crossing the Austrian border

Nordic / crosscountry run (walking/cycling routes in summer) run for 100's of km round the area - the one passing the site continues to Cortina d Amezzo (18 miles /30km) problem is you have to ski back to your outfit

Toblachersee is one of the Camping cheque sites ALtitude 4500+ft

Yes, it is as good as reported. You burn nmore calories, use more muscles, reduce load on joints, go "faster" (if you want to) ~ and all for apparently less effort

Find a group near you and give it a try.
