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.

As we have more options for each day, the route is challenging for “easy” cross country skiers as well for more
experienced athletes.
