Actively in the forest

Actively in the forest

The forest is an inexhaustible source of fun, in fact it is the source of our health and well-being. Whether we realize it or not, we always need the power of nature at any age because it helps us get out of the daily treadmill, soothes our stressed nerves and revitalizes our bodies and souls alike.

What can you do to utilize this life force? Depending on your fitness and lifestyle, there are countless opportunities. Let’s take a look at what activities the forest, i.e. Sopron’s pine forest offers:

Forest running tracks for the fitter: Indicated on the special map, there are several running tracks of various difficulty levels in the Lövérs. You may want to prepare for it well before you start: the rises and falls, track lengths and soil quality are all key information as the levels of quality and difficulty of the tracks are highly varied. The Cyclamen educational path is very popular with runners in the Sopron area, these forest paths are especially filled with joggers in the mornings and the evenings.

Walking trips: Walking trips of various lengths along the assigned paths offer an excellent exercise for the body and do good for the soul as well. The best idea is to set a target, for example a lookout tower, and set out on the journey, perhaps together with your family or friends, taking backpacks filled with food and beverages. Remember that you don’t need a mobile phone for trekking in the woods. Put it in your backpack and focus on the forest. Open your senses and look out for the most beautiful trees, the most colourful leaves, the squirrels and the birds. Take deep breaths; remember that the Sopron forest has a climatic medicinal air. You can touch the trees or even try hugging them. The trekking map of Sopron will help you select your excursion route.
Nordic walking in the forest: It’s a special exercise with special poles. While being easy on the joints, it efficiently exercises the arm and leg muscles. We highly recommend it and provide it gratis at the reception desk of Hotel Lövér. The movement may feel a bit weird at first but once you get the taste of it, you will never give it up. When you’ve got the hang of it, you can increase the tempo.

For regeneration: there is a certain age or physical condition when you just cannot cover long distances or run at a fast pace. That’s when you can fully enjoy the experience of a slow-paced walk in the forest with a total piece of mind. Walk in your own tempo and take a seat on the benches on the way if you need a rest. Close your eyes and breathe. Take deep breaths so that the healthy air could fill your body. Feel the scents, the smells of forest earth, pine trees and flowers. You are treated to an aromatherapy, you must believe in it. Turn your face towards the sunlight and relax. Let the forest do its job. Undoubtedly, trees have healing powers. Ancient Greeks and Romans as well as Celts and Native Americans were convinced that trees could empower and help people. They incept energy from the earth, air and sunlight which have a beneficial effect on us: they cleanse our energy field, relieve stress, relax us and fill us with power and positive energy.

Let’s go to the forest!
