Cross country skiing
Nature, snow and stress free physical activity are the passwords for this time-honoured winter sport. In Trentino you will find hundreds of kilometers of perfectly groomed trails. Nordic skiing will turn your holiday on the snow into a unique opportunity to recuperate your fitness and eliminate the toxins produced by stress. It is the miracle of cross-country, a soft aerobic physical activity that will regenerate your body and mind as you ski along the tracks of Olympic champions.
Freedom on the snow when snowshoeing. Walking without any impediments, as the old woodcutters used to do when they were working in the forests on the mountains in winter. There are no limits to this physical activity; you can snowshoe throughout the length and breadth of Trentino and it is really and truly suitable for everyone.
Ski touring, climbing with skins attached to your skis and then descending long slopes in fresh snow, is perhaps the most exciting sports discipline. An activity that permits you to discover the attractions of the country in winter, far from the noise and crowds of the pistes. Skiing in freedom amidst nature.
