Cross-country skiing – classic or skating

Nordic Sports in the Hohe Tauern. Cross-country skiing is an impressive and majestic way of getting out and about in the wintry landscape. Glide quietly, efficiently and gracefully, as the fantastic natural surroundings pass by and breath-taking views to the mountains open up. Snow-assuredness and wintry temperatures are the main reasons why the Hohe Tauern ski region is a top location for cross-country skiing.
