Map Cross Country Safari

Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

This tour will lead you through 3 different countries as well as through well-known cross country skiing areas. Starting in the heart of the Dolomites – Val Pusteria – the slopes will lead you to Cortina d`Ampezzo and to Sesto. You might be lucky and meet the one or the other famous winter athlete in the biathlon stadiums of Obertilliach and Pokljuka. Val Saisera and its breath-taking panorama is the last insider tip amongst cross country skiers! In Kranjska Gora you will find one of the three biggest cross country skiing areas of Slovenia. Visit the ski-jump in Planica - sometimes called „the mother of all jumping hills.“

  
Characteristics of the route:

As we have more options for each day, the route is challenging for “easy” cross country skiers as well for more experienced athletes. The person accompanying the tour will inform you daily about slope situation and choices. The tracks are ideal for the classic style and the skate skiing.
