Confinement and hiking are not getting along. Yet after the Prime Minister announced this Tuesday April 28, 2020 the confinement exit plan, many people are already thinking about getting some fresh air from May 11. If collective workouts, contact sports and indoor sports remain banned, the government allows individual workouts in the open air within a 100-kilometer distance to your home. And since we all want to enjoy the sun after being on lockdown for over 40 days, Helloways has developed a setting enabling to get easy access to walks, hikes and microadventures near you.
In order to mix nature escape and effective deconfinement, Helloways proposes alternative places to work out. To find the perfect stroll, you only have to select the different filters available on the platform. Do not forget to directly tock on the map “Afficher le rayon de 100 km Covid-19”! Once you chose your walk, select the duration – knowing that there is no longer limit of time! – the level of difficulty and last but not least if you will ride public transit to go to the starting point.
But perhaps are you wondering what Helloways is. Helloways is the website enabling Parisians and Ile-de-France inhabitants to find the hike or walk near you in just one click. With a simple Navigo pass, you can discover places filled with nature in Île-de-France. And yes, there are some die-hard corners of green! Leaving from Paris or a city in the Grand Paris conurbation, Helloways offers about a hundred itineraries 100% nature in order to (re)discover pleasant green areas set in Île-de-France.
Of course, since the beginning of confinement, it was impossible to use Helloways as per usual. But, as we are to exit containment soon, walkers are filled with hope again! So, Helloways considers it is essential to offer alternative places to work out, to avoid traffic jams in Parisian parks for instance. And you can definitely find exceptional places, while upholding social distancing and barrier gestures. As long as confinement is not lifted, you better hike on your own!
