Nordic Walking between the hills of Monferrato
Monferrato is part of the region of Piedmont and it is one of the most important wine districts of Italy. The territory is cut in two by the river Tanaro. The northern part (the Basso Monferrato, “Low Montferrat”), which lies between that river and the Po, is an area of rolling hills and plains. The southern part (the Alto Monferrato, “High Montferrat”) rises from the banks of the Tanaro into the mountains of the Apennines between Piedmont and Liguria regions. Monferrato is declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We offer you a 5 day Nordic Walking holiday in this beautiful area, combined with a good, local food, visits of the charming towns and a wine tasting.
You will use the unique „BungyPump” training poles that have around 20 cm of inbuilt suspension. Yoy get more from excercising with BungyPump then you do from simply walking – a stronger body, greater calory consumption and better fitness.
