CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING IN ZELL AM SEE-KAPRUN

Winter adventures down in the valley or up on the glacier

There are few sports which combine sport and nature better than cross-country skiing. The region around our hotel in Kaprun is home to more than 50 km of cross-country skiing trails catering for both the traditional classic technique and the more modern and dynamic skating technique. Indeed, cross-country skiing enthusiasts can even head up onto the nearby glacier. Why not use your holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun to try out one of the most beautiful and traditional of all winter sports?
 

Sightseeing while cross-country skiing

From the flat Golfplatzloipe trail near the golf course to the Höhenloipe trail high up in the mountains and the 3 km trail on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, cross-country skiing in the Zell am See-Kaprun region is just as diverse as the landscape itself. Highlights such as the Burg Kaprun fortress or the Zeller See lake – both of which are to be found directly next to the trails – make cross-country skiing a sightseeing adventure in its own right. Courses are held in Zell am See-Kaprun, but the trails themselves extend as far as the villages of Schüttdorf, Bruck, Piesendorf, Niedernsill and Fürth. Thanks to its location, Zell am See-Kaprun offers snowsure conditions well into spring, especially on the nearby glacier.
