Nordic Sports, classic or Skating on a cross-country ski holiday
The sun is shining, it is bitterly cold and snow crystals glisten in the winter sun. The tranquillity of a winter day is beautiful. You hear nothing apart from your own breathing while gliding along on the cross-country ski skating track. For beginners, there are some cross-country ski schools that reveal tips.
Castle & great views
Especially beginners and novices will be delighted by the castle cross-country ski track in Kaprun. Very flat and with just a few altitude metres, the track leads past Kaprun Castle - hence the name of the track. A great view to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort and the Hohe Tauern National Park is guaranteed on the Brunnwies cross-country ski track or the golf course cross-country ski track in Zell am See. Leisure skiers enjoy moving along on the flat cross-country ski tracks along the south bank of Lake Zell or in Bruck, whilst experienced skaters are looking for a challenge and don't mind a few more altitude metres. If you count yourself as someone of the latter group, then you should try the cross-country ski track in Fusch a.d. Glocknerstraße or the glacier cross-country ski track on the Kitzsteinhorn.

For altitude training or cross-country skiing by day and night

It has the altitude of up to 2.900 metres above sea level and is open in autumn. Pros find here ideal training conditions almost all year round.
If cross-country ski training during the day is not enough for you, then you should try one of the cross-country night ski tracks in the region. The Tauern SPA cross-country ski track in Kaprun, the cross-country night ski track in Schüttdorf/Zell am See or the cross-country ski track at Kammer Castle in Maishofen - all are lit. Several kilometres long, in great terrain and offering ideal conditions, these cross-country ski tracks are perfect for cross-country skiing and skating in the evening.
