If you say „Let’s go on tour” on Usedom, it is not meant to go for a ski run for sure. That is not what tour-lovers look for at the Usedom island. Those sport enthusiasts, even with pleasure, do without snow and skis here. But not without sticks, because they are absolutely needed.
The island hikes with sticks: Having a walk in Nordic Walking style it’s a new trend in the “3 Seaside Resorts”. Stepping with rhythm towards the sun early in the morning, when hardly anyone is on the beach, is a unique experience. That’s because it’s here, where the nature and the Resort Architecture combine, and become an extraordinary scenery.
Welcome to the paradise of Nordic Walking: the “3 Seaside Resorts”, together with climate experts from the University in Munich, did mark out seven Nordic Walking tours, each with a different difficulty grade. They have a length between 4 and 20 kilometres, and they’ve all got a common starting point: the beach access in Heringsdorf, on the left side of the pier. And because you’ve got a nearly infinitely long beach here, it is obviously the star of every tour. There are tours though, which lead you to the forests around the three Imperial Spas. In order to have good orientation all the tours are continuously signposted. Furthermore you’ve got the opportunity to do the Nordic walking with a qualified trainer.
