Cross-country skiing in the Lungau

The lungau features a very extensive network of 150 km classical cross country trails and skating runs. Here you can tie on your cross-country skis for hours pretty much just whiz through the landscape, enjoying the fresh snow and animal tracks along the way! Unique in the Lungau are the higher trails where you can ski until spring, even if the snow conditions are not to be desired.
