Description of Austria cross country skiing holiday

A week long cross country skiing holiday not only in Austria, but in and around Seefeld, one of the top regions for winter sports, given that it has hosted the Winter Olympics twice. North of Innsbruck, there are five villages making up this region, and we get to explore many of them on our outings. We will be based at the family run, traditional Tyrolean Hotel Menthof, just ten minutes’ walk from the centre of Seefeld town.

With five full days of cross country skiing, we will explore tracks that are easily accessible from the hotel, always in the safe hands of our local expert guide, who will also give daily tuition. Our cross country skiing expeditions include skiing to the nearby villages of Mosern and Unterleutasch, or through the silent, blanketed forests en route up to Wildmoosalm.

There is a free day built into this itinerary, when you can take a train to Innsbruck to explore the Tyrolean capital, do some more winter walking through local valleys, or take a trip to watch some Olympic style ski jumping.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

No snow?
In past winters there have been poor snow on occasions in January. The safe option therefore would be for travel from the end of Jan onwards or early Feb. As it stands currently if the clients were to go on these and there was poor snow coverage, it is likely the leader would look to make use of what snow there was, including artificial snow, though in general this wouldn’t be enough to maintain a week’s worth of skiing, as it is used far less to create cross country skiing tracks. For this reason we do not promote dates prior to January.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Austria cross country skiing holiday

UK office
It all starts at home so we have first worked to reduce our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Leaders & local suppliers
We avoid crowded downhill resorts, seeking out instead incredibly pretty, off-the-beaten-track mountain villages where life continues as it has for centuries. When hand-picking where to stay, we choose small, family-run hotels, offering great regional cuisine, run by owners who take a genuine interest in their guests.

Our base for the week is the family-run Guesthouse Menthof. This charming hotel has been run by the same family for several generations and prides itself in serving authentic cuisine prepared with locally sourced produce. All our leaders are committed to Responsible Tourism and have received training and get additional refresher training on a regular basis so they can help you reduce you impact and maximise the benefits to the local communities from your visit.

Group size
We operate small group tours that have a low impact on the communities we visit and we always ensure our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. This allows us to stay in unique and characterful accommodation that would not have benefitted from tourism due to their limited size.

Activity
Our selection of alternative winter activities seeks to make the most of the natural environment in its pristine state, rather than changing it. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and dogsledding are best suited to remote wilderness areas and the development of these alternatives is key to the long-term survival of many mountain communities.
