Why we combine fasting and hiking

Fast hiking is a combination of therapeutic fasting and hiking. By avoiding solid food, purification and thus regeneration of the body take place -scientifically proven. The hiking helps avoid the breakdown of muscles and occupies our days so we don’t think about hunger at all. In addition, connecting to nature during a fast is a great way to feel thankfulness and improve the connection to our inner beings.

What to expect

The benefits of fasting are manifold and will be addressed during the experience. The combination of fasting and hiking can be used as a remedy for many so-called Western diseases. Fasting and hiking protocols are particularly suitable therapies for overweight, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus type 2, depression and stress. Fasting is also a great way to reset our taste buds, hunger levels and motivation for correcting our eating behaviour. During the week we will address lifestyle and nutrition and educate ourselves about healthy choices that we may want to implement after the fasting cure. 

But even for absolutely healthy people fasting is a great way to stay healthy and prevent future maladies. We all should give our bodies and minds some time throughout the year to clean and heal and to bethink ourselves of what is important and what really matters.

Why do I need you?

Therapeutic fasting is much more than just stopping to eat and should never be done without the proper orientation. We follow the fasting protocol of Dr. Buchinger, which is tried and tested on millions of patients in Germany and abroad. Buchinger fasting allows for very few calories throughout the day, which makes it a safe and proven way to fast and let your body repair itself. In addition to the fasting we will hike some of the most iconic landmarks and enjoy the incredible views of the city and its surrounding nature. The tours will be chosen according to the fitness of the participants and weather and safety conditions. As optional additions to the hiking we offer Qi Gong at the beach and sunset yoga classes, massages or even paragliding, Of course all activities are voluntary.

Not only physical

Fasting takes place not only on a physical level. For millennia followers of all religions have used fasting as a means to connect with the universal energy and to search for enlightenment. 

Fasting hiking combines the unique experience of freeing the body from accumulated waste and purify our minds and souls. Connecting with nature during fasting can lead to a reorientation on the personal path of life. Listening to your inner voice and getting to know completely new sides of yourself. If you’ve never done this before this will be a completely new, exciting and mind-opening experience.
