The beach holiday: good for the soul
A week on the beach has not hurt anyone, that’s clear. Chilling under a parasol is unquestionably nice and offers tourists a welcome break from the daily grind. In addition to all sorts of entertainment, water sports etc, days by the sea or lake are just wonderful. Launch a lilo into the water and while away the hours.
However, a holiday on the beach also has its drawbacks: depending on the destination, you can be squeezed onto a strip of overcrowded beach. And you have the same view every day, even though you are in a new, foreign country. After a week of idleness, you have only seen the hotel, restaurant and beach.
The hiking holiday – travelling with a difference, on the mountains
Your grandparents have always known that hiking is good for the body and soul. Constant walking, whether on flat paths or uphill, strengthens the cardiovascular system and improves blood flow. The joints, tendons and ligaments are supplied with oxygen-containing blood, and regular exercise helps lower blood pressure.
As you can see, there is nothing better for a healthy lifestyle than a hiking holiday. But that’s not all! A hiking holiday is an excellent way to get to know a country and its landscape. Every day you can explore new paths and discover hidden places. Immerse yourself, so to speak, in foreign lands and cultures instead of spending the day on a deck chair.
