Hiking area Arlberg

Their passion for nature and mountains as well as an active and healthy lifestyle attracts many mountain aficionados to great heights. Mountain hiking ranks among the three most popular mass sports in Austria and gains more and more devotees every year.

No previous knowledge, specific talent or complicated gear necessary! Hiking is a simple, yet very effective sporting activity, promoting and maintaining your personal health. However, mountain hiking does not only benefit your physical condition, but also your mental state. The results of the AMAS 2000 altitude research study, conducted at the Arlberg, proved that mountain hiking positively affects the economisation of the cardiovascular system, improves blood sugar levels, reduces the risk of thrombosis and enables weight loss.

Researchers also investigated and emphasised its beneficial neuropsychological effects such as a generally positive outlook on life, improved sleep quality and duration as well as an overall reduction of negative feelings.

Hiking for body and soul

A different study conducted by the Alpine Association confirmed all these improvements. Even one single hiking tour of three hours can already result in a positive shift in the mental state. Mood and calmness levels were raised while negative feelings such as listlessness and anxiety decreased. At a higher altitude, physical activity in open nature has even better effects on our emotional state of mind and reduces stress levels more than in an urban environment. www.alpenverein.at

These results clarify the positive effects of mountain hiking – not only for the body, but also for mind and soul! No wonder that this sporting activity enjoys such great popularity and continuously gains devotees.

Whether you prefer to explore the region on your own, enjoy nature together with your family or turn to certified mountain guides, willing to share their alpine knowledge and ensuring you an informative and exciting hiking tour, remains for you to decide.
