A very special type of movement.
Nordic walking activates many more muscles than normal walking. The upper body is also trained; bringing movement to the entire skeletal system. This is due to the special hiking poles which are used in this sport.
Our valley offers lots of opportunities to try this sport with a variety of suitable hiking trails.
Slacklining is a new trend that is particularly popular with young people. Train your sense of balance and have fun with family and friends.
In Selva there is a park dedicated to this activity where you can set up your slackline, offering ideal conditions for both beginners and advanced.
Horse-riding in Selva
For the inexperienced, it takes a little bravery at first, but it's worth it! Discover the Dolomites on horseback and you won’t regret it. A very special experience. Of course the school also offers riding lessons and trekking tours in the Val Gardena.
