Cross-Country Skiing in Gastein
Cross-Country Skiing holidays in Austria
Gastein spoils cross-country skiers with numerous trails that lead to the most beautiful places in the valley. Cross-country skiing is a great winter sport for non-downhill skiers. This Nordic version of skiing activates almost all muscle groups in the body and this form of exercise in the fresh air is a delight for all ages.
Dense Network of Trails
Over 45 km of groomed cross-country trails await time-tested professionals and recreational skiers in the Gastein Valley. Follow the valley trail or climb the mountains: the trail network runs through the whole valley all the way up to the mountaintops. At Sportgastein, cross-country skiing is even possible well into spring, as here you can find a trail 1,600m above sea level, the highest in the Gastein Valley.
In Harmony with Nature
The Gastein Valley is rich in scenic beauty and places of power. All along your cross-country and Nordic Cruising journey, you’ll be granted access to these special places that in clear weather reward you with a beautiful view of the imposing mountains of Salzburg and overwhelming feeling of nature.
The New Trend Sport: Nordic Cruising
If you’d prefer to make your own tracks besides the groomed cross-county trails, then we highly recommend trying Nordic Cruising. Make your way through untouched terrain on shorter skis with a wider footprint. Easily glide and climb with a circular motion, all while moving gracefully through the glistening snow.
