About IVV

Do you want to stay fit, become more vital, and also be happier?

Then hiking is exactly what you need! As Josef Hofmiller said: hiking is not only an activity for your legs, but also a state of your soul.

The International Federation of Popular Sports (IVV) is committed to promoting shared sports activities. While hiking is the main focus, other sports like swimming, skiing, or cycling are also supported without any competitive nature.

Through regular events in over 40 member countries worldwide, the IVV promotes cross-border understanding and brings friends together across borders.

Hiking is not just physical exercise, but also a way to clear your mind, enjoy nature, and relax your soul. And who knows, maybe you'll also become one of those happier people known as hikers.
