Why you should book a cross-country skiing holiday in Gastein:

  • Within walking distance of the ski trail: Many lodging establishments in Gastein are located close to the local XC trails. So, it's just a brief stroll to the trail, then away you glide!
  • Uninterrupted cross-country enjoyment: As soon as the temperatures are cold enough, snow-making equipment kicks in along a number of the trails, trails which, incidentally, are also nicely maintained.
  • Skiing in the evening: Even though it gets dark early in winter, you can still go cross-country skiing after a day at the spa or out on the mountains. The Kurparkloipe in Bad Hofgastein and the Böcksteiner Loipe in Bad Gastein are lit up until 9 p.m.
  • Each trail is set up for "classic" as well as "skating" technique.
  • Gastein has a long XC season: The trails in Sportgastein are located at 1,600 m above sea level, which means you can ski from autumn until well into springtime.
