The majority of people will concede that they should exercise more. We all need half an hour of some activity every day in order to be fitter and therefore healthier. These 30 minutes correspond to a total of 10,000 steps or 8 kilometers of cycling. Cycling or walking while running one’s daily errands is the easiest way of making these 30 minutes of physical activity a daily ritual. Cycling and walking in the morning hours wake us up, keep us in shape, help us lose weight and reduce the negative effects of stress on our body. There are numerous reasons why you should take up cycling. Not only is it nice to experience nature from a more intimate perspective, but also beneficial for our immune system, muscles and bones. Cycling is a very relaxing activity that produces uniform body movement, thus stabilising the physical and psychological body functions. In addition to doing yourself a lot of good, you also help protect our planet and environment. This has inspired us to offer bicycles to our guests at Japin Breg and let you embark on your own cycling adventure.
Nordic walking has numerous benefits. It is 40 – 50 % more efficient than walking without sticks. It reduces tension in shoulders and the back of the head, prevents osteoporosis and arthritis, keeps our bones dense and our body flexible, and slows down the ageing process. This kind of walking improves posture and body balance, positively affects knees and joins, and burns up to 70 % more calories. Your nordic walking sticks are waiting for you at Japin Breg. Make sure you bring a pair of comfortable shoes and enjoy the nature around the complex.

The game of bocce is traditionally played on natural terrains. Bocce balls are made of wood, plastic or metal. At Japin Breg you will be provided with wooden and metal ones. The game can be playedby two players or by two teams of two, three or four players. The object of the game is to throw a boccia ball and aim as close to the small red target ball as possible. For each ball thrown closest to the target ball a point is scored. A team earns one point for each ball that is closer to the target ball on the bocce court than the closest ball of the opposing team. The winning team is the one that scores 13 points. It is also possible to roll a bocce ball, and when throwing it, it is done underhanded and the ball should fly in an arc. It is also permitted to hit either team’s bocce balls and the target ball for more points.
