Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

During your cross country skiing tour you will admire the impressive mountains of the Dolomites including the famous Three Peaks going from Toblach/Dobbiaco to Cortina d’Ampezzo or the “sundial” of Sexten/Sesto – a natural spectacle in the Fischlein Valley. You will experience the sunny valley of Casies and the breath-taking valley of Braies with the serenity of pure nature on Plätzwiese/Prato Piazza – 2,000 metres above sea level.
You will start directly from the hotel or you will need just a short transfer to the cross country ski tracks.

  
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.
During the briefing – before tour start – we will give you detailed information about the tour and the options.
The trails are suitable for both classic and free technique (skating).
