Hiking

Even if it has been practised from the dawn of mankind, this sport has lost none of its appeal or popularity.
We are talking about hiking. And although you hardly see any hikers with red stockings and knee breeches anymore, this sport is seeing a true revival, especially because trekking has become very popluar and the invention of themed trails. Leukerbad has more than 200 km of hiking trails.
