The flat, sun-drenched plain of the Seiser Alm offers ideal conditions for cross-country skiing. The panorama is characterised by the majestic backdrop of the Schlern/Sciliar mountain massif. The cross-country ski trails on the Alpe di Siusi are undoubtedly among the most beautiful in Europe.

With over 60 kilometres of perfectly groomed winter hiking trails, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the enchanting fairy-tale landscape. With a bit of luck, you might come across a shy deer or a nimble hare on your way. The sky is often a clear blue, while the air is refreshing and frosty. If you get too cold, the cosy huts along the route invite you to take a relaxing break. Here you can settle down in a cosy atmosphere, enjoy a hot tea and sample delicious South Tyrolean delicacies.


Would you like to spend an eventful day with the whole family?

Ice skating

Ice skating is another sport that can be practised in the Schlern/Sciliar mountain area. The Völser Weiher lake in particular is transformed into a magical ice rink a few weeks a year, inviting you to dream. On the natural ice rink, it feels like you're in a winter fairy tale. Lace up your skates and glide across the glistening ice. And the best thing about it? The breath-taking backdrop of the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park, which makes everything seem even more magical.
