in Vorarlberg

Through the silence and peace of a glittering white world

Cross-country skiing in Vorarlberg

Internalise the power and majesty of nature and set these strengths into motion as you glide silently through a peaceful world...

… finding your own rhythm as you advance forward.

Energy and vitality is renewable!
Internalise the power and majesty of nature and set these strengths into motion. On the slopes, in the forest and in the villages, let the enchanting landscape work its magic. Treat your soul to stillness and peace. Transform your holiday into a lasting experience.

A diverse network of trails and routes for classic cross-country skiing and skating is available in all regions of Vorarlberg. Cross-country ski trails are present in numerous places. Many of these are even floodlit and open in the evening. High-elevation cross-country ski trails above 1,000 metres elevation are a special experience. Vorarlberg’s highest cross-country ski trail, across the frozen Silvretta lake to the Silvretta-Bielerhöhe at 2,000 m in Montafon, is an extra special experience. The Nordic Sports Park in Sulzberg is a compact option for winter holidaymakers far from the downhill ski slopes. There is even a 4-km floodlit stretch, which is open from Monday to Friday.

Give biathlon a try
Those interested can try out biathlon, a combination of cross-country skiing and sport shooting, in Kleinwalsertal. Experts will demonstrate the right moves on the slope and at the shooting range every Monday. Similar opportunities exist at the Nordic Sports Park Sulzberg in Bregenzerwald.
