Barefoot hike in the Unterautal

Digging your bare toes in the earth, moving through the knee-deep water of a stream, walking over the forest floor: Exploring nature barefoot is a very special experience. The "barefoot hike" leads through the untouched and idyllic Unterautal valley in Achenkirch. The experience is not so much about hiking but rather about perceiving, feeling, and touching natural resources: grass, earth, moss, stones, roots, and water. Moving barefoot slowly and deliberately lets you make a lasting connection with nature.

This discovery tour in nature is designed for barefoot beginners, which means that we stroll leisurely and gently through the valley while enjoying the surroundings. Not only is walking barefoot fun, but it also has some healthy “side effects”: It improves blood circulation in your legs, strengthens your muscles, ligaments and joints and even boosts your immune system.
