Cross-country skiing with a view
Cross-country skiing in the Dolomites: Relaxation close to nature, sports challenge
For all those who like to be a little bit more sporty and closer to nature:
Excellently prepared cross-country ski trails lead through the idyllic mountain landscape of the Sesto Dolomite mountains, ranging from easy to demanding fitness requirements. Cross-country newcomers can practise their first steps in the Val Fiscalina. This uniquely beautiful landscape contributes its share to a guaranteed successful experience! If your motivation should wane, there is always a charming horse-drawn carriage taxi available in the Val Fiscalina. Experienced cross-country runners should not miss out on the Sesto high-altitude panorama trail. It leads over the Sesto Alps, along the Carnic mountain ridge and will reward you with a unique vista of the pale summits of the Sesto Sun Dial mountains. The trail network is not limited to Sesto. Experienced cross-country runners can also take a trip to San Candido and Dobbiaco to Cortina d’Ampezzo or even to Eastern Tyrol. Fresh winter air and panoramic views are of course included!
Did you know… that cross-country skiing has a long tradition in the Dolomites? On 13 January 2018, the “Pustertaler Ski Marathon” with Sesto as its destination celebrated its 40th anniversary. The legendary 60 km long trail runs through five villages of the Alta Pusteria valley: Braies, Villabassa, Dobbiaco, San Candido and Sesto and it lures professionals and hobby skiers from near and abroad to this annual sports event.
