Winter holiday in the Alpe di Siusi Cross-country skiing & skating in South Tyrol
Glide over Europe’s largest alpine pasture
Here on the Seiser Alm in South Tyrol you can experience the sense of distance from Europe’s largest alpine pasture. Against the unique mountain world of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site you’ll be accompanied by views of the Langkofel, Plattkofel and Schlern.
The slightly hilly landscape is a true gem for cross-country skiing lovers: at a snow-covered height of 1,800 and 2,200 metres there are 80 km of sun-drenched cross-country ski trails of varying difficulty levels. All cross-country ski trails have double tracks and are also prepared for skating.
It’s not for nothing that the Seiser Alm is also very popular among leading international teams: the low-oxygen mountain air also makes it the ideal region for altitude and endurance training. The local infrastructure includes the Nordic Ski Centre and accommodation providers that focus on cross-country skiers. The Seiser Alm Dolomites Val Gardena cross-country skiing region is also part of the Dolomiti Nordicski cross-country skiing carousel: Europe’s largest cross-country skiing region opens up with 1,300 kilometres of trails.
The love of the Dolomites region extends from skiing to the cuisine with its South Tyrolean specialities.
