If you’re planning to dedicate your Dolomite holiday to cross-country skiing, the trails on the Seiser Alm, in the heart of the Dolomites, are the place to be. 80 kilometres of cross-country tracks at an altitude of between 1,800 and 2,200 metres are on the Seiser Alm. All the tracks are double or quadruple and perfectly groomed. Whether you opt for skating or classic style, beginner or pro: The Seiser Alm has the right trail for every taste.
When you’re cross-country skiing over the Seiser Alm, you don’t just get the vastness of Europe’s largest mountain plateau to enjoy, but also the Dolomite Mountains: The Langkofel, Plattkofel and the Schlern peaks are practically within hand’s reach. And alongside the beauty of the countryside, the Dolomite region also has a lot to offer when it comes to culinary pleasure: Countless mountain cabins entice you in to enjoy a break and a spot of traditional local food in the cosy atmosphere of a mountain hut.
