The Park has several paths for walking, running or cycling. These red paths, called Bidegorri in basque, cross different areas of the Park where you can enjoy nature, the trees and the river.
Crossing different areas of the Park, Nordic walking consists of walking in a natural way while using poles accompanying the instinctive swinging of the arms. It is a gentle comprehensive technique that exercises 90 percent of the body’s muscles and a way to optimize the dynamics of the step, depending on the physical form of each person.
Its success lies in the fact that its practice is available to people of all ages and physical conditions.
The Technology Park is an environment in which Science, Technology and Innovation are embraced and considers that the Environment is a fundamental element to ensure that the set of activities that are carried out coexist in a harmonious way. Working in the middle of nature is possible thanks to the fact that the Park has more than 5,000 trees belonging to 87 species of important environmental value.
This route helps our inexperienced eyes to discover this little treasure that already belongs to all of Biscay society.
