5 stars for the cross-country skiing fun here
For sporting gourmets: in the 5-star cross-country skiing region around Lake Achen, you can choose your favourite route in one of the largest and best maintained networks of cross-country trails in Austria. On the network's more than 210 kilometres of trails, skiers can glide effortlessly into hibernating Karwender valleys or alongside the deep blue Lake Achen.
Although excellent snow conditions are almost guaranteed in the region, the 40 kilometres of cross-country runs can also be covered with artificial snow when required, thereby guaranteeing skiing fun even when the weather gets a little warmer. Skaters and Nordic cruisers can find their favourite route here too. 'Nordic cruising', by the way, is a type of skiing where wider, shorter skis are used. This version of cross-country skiing copies a person's natural walking motion; its diagonal stride is easily learned and is a lot of fun for the skier.
Our leisure guides go cross-country skiing with the Alpenrose guests several times a week during the wintertime. For a rental fee, the corresponding gear can be hired on request from a local sports equipment dealer. So there's nothing more stopping you from making your cross-country skiing début!
