The call of the hills
Hiking – a labour of love
Hiking – a great feeling
So it’s a good opportunity to listen to yourself.
But don’t forget: humans have been wandering through the world for thousands of years and this has always been the reason for moving – our bodies are built to do it. So we should do something that is the most natural thing in the world and above all good for our heart and circulation.
And: hikes are lovely opportunities to discover the natural world with the whole family, to talk about things for which there is no time in daily life and unwind together. And you don’t have to go far to do this - the most beautiful hiking areas in Ireland can be right outside our front door. The adventure can start at the drop of a hat!
The hiker’s checklist
- Which route? Local hiking clubs can explain the level of difficulty of the different routes. As a rule of thumb for beginners: a maximum of 20 kilometres per day on flat routes.
- What is the weather forecast? Get weather warnings sent to your mobile with a weather app so that you can optimally use the time outside.
- In any case, you should always protect yourself from the sun, with NIVEA’s Sun Anti Age Face Cream, for example – even when it’s cloudy.
Need to cool down?
Fun and exercise in the water
Whether on a lake or in the sea – there are numerous sporting and relaxing outdoor activities to do on water. Tired of just lying on the beach and want to get moving? Then get your circulation moving again with tried and tested beach games! Beach-ball, Frisbee, Boules and Beach Volleyball are not only fun, they are also a real workout – depending on how they are played, of course. This makes jumping into the cool water afterwards all the more refreshing. But don’t forget your waterproof sun protection with SPF15 from our range of sprays, sun lotions and creams!
