Nordic Walking

Nordic walking

  • Do you like outdoor activities?
  • Do you like the nature and walking?
  • Do you want to be healthy, fit, build a beautiful body, reduce stress and meet your soul-mates?

We have prepared special routes for you using the walking sticks – Nordic Walking

We have created 4 different Nordic walking routes around the Stratená village. They are 4 to 12.6 km long. All the walking routes start and end up in the Stratená village. On their way, you pass by the Stratenský Canyon, Stratenská píla, Malé and Veľké Zajfy, Dedinky village and Geravy. All the route maps and their profiles can be found in the following link:

  1. Stratená – Stratenský kaňon – Stratená
  2. Stratená – Veľké a Malé Zajfy – Stratená

The Nordic Walking routes project was carried out with the support of the Ministry of Transport and Construction of the Slovak Republic.
