Cross-country skiing in the Lesachtal Valley

60 kilometres of cross-country skiing bliss

It is obvious that Europe's most natural valley also has a lot to offer for cross-country skiers. After all, the almost kitschy winter landscape of the Lesachtal Valley is a particularly enjoyable place for gliding through the snow.

Over 60 kilometres of perfectly groomed cross-country ski tracks ensure that every cross-country skier will find his or her happiness in Carinthia's Winter World. Whether skating or cruising, whether classic or racy: surrounded by snow-covered mountains, you can enjoy "cross-country skiing deluxe" in the crystal-clear winter air of the Lesachtal Valley.

 ... on the Sonnenloipe in St. Lorenzen
The 4.3-kilometre-long Sonnenloipe cross-country ski track, with several ascents and descents, takes you through the Carinthian winter landscape. And that free of charge!

... on the Grenzlandloipe
The almost 30-kilometre-long cross-country ski track of intermediate difficulty connects Carinthia and East Tyrol and is considered one of the most beautiful cross-country ski tracks in the Southern Alps.

 … on the 2 high-altitude cross-country ski tracks
The 10-kilometre-long cross-country ski track in St. Oswald is easy to master even for those who are not overly fit. The second high-altitude cross-country ski track in Obertilliach, with over 100 altitude metres, is something for the more experienced.
