Cross-country skiing

High cross-country ski trails and trail network in the valley

Whether classic or skating, beginners or advanced cross-country skiers can expect impressive cross-country skiing pleasure in the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region.

The ADAC (General German Automobile Association) awarded the cross-country trail association five stars (out of five) for its excellent network of cross-country ski trails. Should there be a shortage of snow in the valley for once, high altitude trails such as the hill moor trail in Mittersill (22 km), the high altitude trail in Hochkrimml (12 km) or the sunshine trail in Sportgastein (8 km) provide viable alternatives. Wonderful views of the mighty 3,000-metre peaks of the Hohe Tauern National Park are guaranteed.
