Seefeld Cross-Country Skiing

Already recognised as the best cross-country skiing destination in Europe, Seefeld’s long-term goal is to be acknowledged as the best cross-country skiing centre in the world.

Seefeld Cross Country Skiing 660x260

Sitting on a relatively wide plateau Seefeld was the official cross country skiing venue for the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics as well the Nordic Ski World Championship in 1985 and the Cross Country Skiing Cup 1999. The Olympiaregion Seefeld boasts a total of 266 km trails with varying degrees of difficulty.

The rolling terrain allows enough turns, dips and downhill spurts to be interesting and the forest sections, of which there are many, are enchantingly scenic.

The 266 km of interconnected trails include 156km "Classic" and 110km "Skating". All trails are free to use with a Seefeld guest card (which comes with your accommodation) and 3km of trails are flood-lit six times a week during the winter season. Trails are set and groomed daily.

A satisfying but not overchallenging 6 km circular langlaufe trail is the B2 that leaves Seekirchl heading southeast towards Innsbruck but turning back before Reith Other routes can be found at Mosern and Leutasch. All these villages can be reached by taking the shuttle bus from the Apothekerparkplatz. Routes are graded blue, red and black for difficulty as for downhill skiing.

On select days, access to the biathlon course is also available. Be sure to call in advance for prices and availability.

A detailed cross country map can be bought at the tourist office for 3 Euros and is worth the outlay. The free A4 sheet is insufficiently detailed. There is also a useful website for those who want to plan routes in detail.
