Sporty guests and those who with great aspirations will be excited that the Samerhof in Mariapfarr is next to Austria’s largest network of Nordic walking trails.

Walken rund um den Lungau

Mariapfarr has Austria’s largest network of Nordic walking trails. The Nordic walking park in Mariapfarr in the Lungau region was certified by the Austrian Nordic Walking Association and is particularly suited for classic high-altitude training ranging 1,000 to 1,400 m above sea level.

With a total length of 119 km, guests and locals will find 15 of the very best signposted Nordic walking paths, with lengths varying from 3.1 km to 14.5 km. Ascents from 600 m to 6.1 km in length, and altitude changes of up to 400 m are a challenge for every sports enthusiast. The trails take you past fields in bloom and idyllic countryside, away from the busy streets.

Nordic walking is 40 % more effective than walking without poles and is ideal endurance training. With Nordic walking, muscle tension in the neck and shoulder area is loosened. If you would like to learn Nordic walking, there are many Nordic walking instructors at your disposal. Guests of the Samerhof are welcome to use the Nordic walking course available at Vital & Wellnesscenter Samsunn in Mariapfarr.
