Best Health & Fitness Retreat of 2015
Nordic Walking in the Alps and the UK
Nordic Walking began as summer training for cross country skiers, but now Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing health activities in Europe. It's a form of walking using very light weight poles which encourages you to use 90% of all muscles.
Nordic Walking in France
For 2015 we have 3 different Nordic walking holidays in France. A Nordic Walking weekend with optional yoga in the Alpine town of Chamonix, a Deluxe Walking Week with Yoga from our luxury chalet in the Aravis plus an opportunity to Nordic Walk in Provence and through 'The Verdon Gorge' on our guaranteed point-to-point departure.

Well-being Holidays in the Alps
Well-being trips are increasing in popularity as more people than ever before seek to de-stress and recover from the grind of everyday life. The healing qualities of time spent in the mountains are well documented.
I loved the 'breath of fresh air' in the great outdoors! I didn't realise I could get so much fun and exercise out of a set of poles!
Cross Country Skiing
So you walk, run, cycle or workout regularly but feel the effect of the winter blues? Try cross country skiing to maintain and build that fitness level during the winter months. Learn or develop an excellent method of winter ‘cross-training’ by trying both skating and classic ski styles. One of the most aerobic of sports and yet low impact on the joints, this form of exercise is a great way to improve your fitness - at all levels.
