Cross-country courses – classic and skating
Traditional and timeless
Obertauern and its neighbouring villages, Untertauern, Tweng and Mauterndorf, provide an extensive cross-country paradise for all fans of cross-country ski-sports.
Trails which are many kilometres long and of varying degrees of difficulty, as well as guided tours offer variety on a cross-country skiing holiday in Salzburg province.
A successful mixture of relaxation and recuperation is increasingly important for people in their leisure time. As a result, cross-country skiing is experiencing a renaissance – whether classic or the sportier skating cross-country technique. Cross-country skiing is a very complex type of sport and it gently trains a large proportion of the muscles of the body.
The healthy exercise strengthens body and mind and is the perfect combination of sport and fun.
The heart and muscles are gently pushed and the circulation stimulated. Therefore, you will not only improve your ability, but also receive added benefits for your wellbeing.
- Courses for beginners and the more advanced: For anyone who wants to enjoy some physical activity and unspoiled nature in Obertauern.
- Private cross-country skiing lessons: Private lessons for beginners and the more advanced. Personal and individual support promote the learning process and promise rapid success.
