Nordic walking is a sport that was established in Finland. It involves walking with sticks that are similar to those used for skiing and may change according to the terrain. When walking with the sticks, 600 muscles are involved in the movement and the upper part of the body reduces 30 percent of the burden to the legs thus reducing the load.

The project is part of the cooperation between the Slovak town of Humenné and the Polish town of Jaslo.
