Holidays and winter sports, that doesn't always have to be skiing. Because the region around Galtür in Paznaun Valley is highly recommendable for cross-country skiing in particular. Why this is so, is quickly explained. When cross-country skiing in Galtür, you benefit from the elevated location of Galtür at 1,584 metres above sea level. This means that in rear Paznaun, there is always enough snow for perfectly groomed cross-country ski tracks. The altitude further guarantees that the season for cross-country skiing in Galtür is very long, already beginning in December. The entire network of cross country skiing tracks measures some 70 kilometres and provides many different options for novices as well as the advanced. The access point to the cross-country ski tracks of Galtür is located directly behind Hotel Zontaja, allowing you to start skiing right away. If you want, you can even ski all the way to Ischgl in Paznaun Valley and then take the free public bus from there to get back to Galtür.
We all know about the health benefits of cross-country skiing. It is well- known that hardly any other sport trains the entire body the way cross- country skiing does. Perfect fitness training in the fresh air of Paznaun Valley, where everyone can adapt the challenge to suit themselves by adjusting their speed. Whether you prefer classic cross-country skiing or skating when doing so does not matter, because in Galtür both options are available for you. Galtür also has a special feature to offer all avid cross-country skiers, because there are two high-altitude cross-country ski tracks which will take you directly from Galtür into the wintry alpine world of rear Paznaun. One cross-country ski track leads to the Kops- reservoir and the other even all the way to the 2,040 meter high Bielerhöhe, where you can ski all around the Silvretta reservoir. For all cross-country skiing enthusiasts, there is even a floodlit 3-kilometre long night-time cross-country ski track, where you can ski under floodlights until 22:00.
Once a year, Galtür transforms into the Austrian Mecca of cross-country skiing. And in 2022 with a new format: Welcome to the first Galtür Nordic Volumes.
