Cross-country skiing with a view
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 Val Pusteria valley? On 7 January 2017, 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.
