With every summer, Nordic Walking has become an increasingly popular sport. It is practised using two ski poles, their ends protected by plastic in order to facilitate walking on slopes.
This sport is practised on hiking trails which makes it possible to use 80% of the muscles in the human body. Since 2009, Lloret de Mar has had a team of professionals on hand to introduce visitors to the sport: one and a half hour excursions are organised every day in summer.
