- Do not take part in any organised collections

- Fitness by hiking in the mountains?
Fitness is the ideal source of fitness in modern times! Walking, hiking and climbing in the mountains are some of the most enjoyed leisure time activities in Europe.According to an opinion poll, more than half of all Central-Europeans are enjoying them – in Germany alone 37 million!With these impressive numbers we don´t really need to enquire about the health qualities of these attractive sports for nature lovers.But even then, there is no other leisure sport that demands such a good allround condition, for young and old alike.Walking in the mountains activates almost every part of the body simultaneously.
Going uphill, the heart, lungs and muscles are stimulated and on the return, the muscles, joints and bones – including the spine – are trained. There is no better way to be really fit and to prevent damage caused by our modern civilisation.
The mountains are a beautiful, fascination fitness studio, offering such a broad network of paths and cable-cars for everyone. The mountains around Saalbach Hintergelmm have an ideal and “healthy” altitude.
However, it is important to point out that certain rules must be respected to avoid injuries and accidents. That is why we strongly recommend all beginners to start off with a qualified walking guide, who can explain the necessary safety precautions and who will enable you to enjoy this beautiful mountain world to the full.
