World class ski trails – your cross-country winter in Austria’s Seefeld

Collection by Urlaub in Österreich

In this Collection, we’ve put together the most beautiful cross-country trails and events in Austria’s Seefeld region.

These routes guide you through Seefeld’s perfect cross-country skiing landscapes, just in time for the start of the season. Nestled between the Wetterstein Mountains with the Zugspitze and the Karwendel Nature Park, the region lies on a sunny high plateau, 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) above the Inn Valley. With around 250 perfectly groomed kilometres (155 mi) of classic and skating cross-country ski trails, as well as special trails for dog, sled and night runs, the region offers diverse and varied cross-country skiing for everyone.

During the winter months, the Seefeld region shows its most beautiful sunny side. Winter sports enthusiasts from around the world come for the breathtaking natural scenery. At the Seefeld Sports Arena, ambitious amateur cross-country skiers and experienced professionals glide side by side on wide world champion trails around the famous Seekirchl.

On the Tours through the extensive Leutasch Valley, you can lose yourself in the breathtaking winter landscape. The region’s five towns – Seefeld in Tirol, Leutasch, Reith bei Seefeld, Scharnitz and Mösern – are connected by a diverse and varied network of cross-country ski trails during the colder months. The impressive Wildmoos Panorama Loop, for example, links the three villages of Seefeld, Leutasch and Mösern – a panoramic run across the idyllic Wildmoos plateau. Depending on experience and level, each of the five areas offers unique cross-country ski Tours and cosy refreshment stops.

The Seefeld region is probably the best-known cross-country skiing region in Austria. In 1964 and 1976, the area hosted the Nordic disciplines for the Olympic Games. It was one of the first regions in Tyrol to invest in Nordic sports. Today, cross-country skiing is one of the most popular winter sports here, as it has been for some time already.

As a proven venue for competitions, the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships were also held here in 2019. If you would like to enjoy a real competition atmosphere in the extensive region yourself, why not take part in one of the popular popular races and join the professionals at the 52nd Euroloppet Ganghoferlauf in March 2023, for example.

So what are you waiting for? The perfect winter holiday is here in the Seefeld region! For a taste of what to expect, check out this video:

    Kaiser-Max-Runde

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    As one of the most extensive and demanding cross-country skiing circuits, the spectacular Kaiser-Max-Runde is based on the fun run of the same name. On the way, the route from Seekirchl to Wildmoos leads through wildly romantic forest areas, runs through the scenic Leutasch Valley over (almost) its entire length and returns to Seefeld with a spectacular cross-country ski run.

    On the tour you cover more than 650 meters in altitude and 60 kilometers - making the trail the longest contiguous trail in Austria. This not only requires solid stamina from you, but also a lot of experience in climbing and descending. But if you feel confident enough, the challenges of the route afterwards will give you an indescribable feeling.
