Cross-Country Skiing

Out into the open air and enjoy the winter magic of cross-country skiing

The many signed routes for cross-country skiers, leisurely or athletic, give you plenty of choice when planning your time on a winter holiday in the Romantic Hotel Wastlwirt****. Sometimes it’s fun to change down a gear to simply marvel at the glistening winter landscape as you glide along. To balance this with a bit of athletic effort, there are plenty of kilometres of cross-country skiing circuits (Loipen) taking you through the breathtaking Lungau biosphere region.

Diversification on boards

30 cross-country skiing routes covering around 150 km provide plenty of variety. For ambitious skaters, there are around 80 km of cross-county skiing skating tracks available.

If you have never tried cross-country skiing, then you can learn the correct technique in special cross-country skiing lessons. There are also courses for children .

Huts for cross-country-skiers

Huts for recreation

The various cross-country skiing routes (Loipen) are for different abilities, from easy to challenging. And, if you want to take a break, then you can stop off in one of the many traditional huts and cosy restaurants to enjoy a hearty snack of regional specialities, accompanied by a freshly pulled beer and a Stamperl of homemade schnapps; that will get you going again!

Loipen Badge & Combi-Ticket

Loipen Badge as a pleasant memory

The Lungau Loipen Badge (€30) gives guests staying at the Romantic Hotel Wastlwirt**** the right to use all of the cross-country tracks in the Lungau region. It is tastefully designed and serves as a nice memento of your holiday too. The Loipen-combi-ticket is also valid in the local ski buses.
