THE first park of its kind to be used for teaching the sport of Nordic Walking (akin to cross-country skiing) opened yesterday on the La Victoria country estate in Alcudia. Representatives from the regional Tourism ministry, Balearic promotional vehicle, Inestur, and the mayor of Alcudia presented the new installations yesterday which, it is hoped, will be an adjunct to promoting all-year-round tourism. There are 6 million followers of Nordic Walking in the world, a third of them in Germany.
