A winter vacation doesn’t necessarily have to be a skiing vacation. Here in the region Zell am See-Kaprun much more than slopes is waiting for you.
Cross-country ski trails between glacier, mountain and lake: cross-country skiers will be excited about more than 300km trails, among them the 50km long “Pinzgau-trail” through the valley of Pinzgau. A special attraction are the higher trails on the Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn.
Cross-country skiing is possibly by night too. The night trail in Zell am See-Kaprun is illuminated until 10.00 pm.
In the company of a well trained mountain or ski guide you will be able to climb the mountain yourself! Sounds good?
First experiences can be gathered along the slopes of the Schmittenhöhe, on the well marked ski tours in the glacier skiing region Kitzsteinhorn or at the ski touring mountain Ronachkopf in Thumersbach.
