More winter activities

A winter holiday in the Dolomites region Seiser Alm in South Tyrol is multifaceted and means a lot more than just skiing!

Europe's largest mountain plateau transforms into a white winter wonderland: glide along perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails, explore the Seiser Alm on winter hiking and snowshoe trails, or go tobogganing, ice-skating or else discover the Seiser Alm on a horse-drawn sleigh - everyone will find their favourite activity.

Discover the Dolomites on the cross-country trails

80 kilometres of cross-country tracks at an altitude of between 1,800 and 2,200 metres are on the Seiser Alm. All the tracks are double or quadruple and perfectly groomed. Whether you opt for skating or classic style, beginner or pro: The Seiser Alm has the right trail for every taste.
When you’re cross-country skiing over the Seiser Alm, you don’t just get the vastness of Europe’s largest mountain plateau to enjoy, but also the Dolomite Mountains: The Langkofel, Plattkofel and the Schlern are practically within hand’s reach. Cross-country skiing in the top athletes' training venue: The Seiser Alm in the Dolomites is high up on the list for pros. Due to the low-oxygen high-altitude air between 1,800 and 2,300 metres above sea level, the Seiser Alm is particularly well suited for professional high-altitude and endurance training.

Snowshoeing and winter hiking

Undisturbed nature, incredible views over the Dolomites and the peaks of the mountains Langkofel, the Plattkofel, the Schlern and the Rosengarten, so many sunny winter days… Snow lovers will find everything they could wish for on a snowshoe walk or winter hike through the Dolomites Region Seiser Alm. The tour network covers 60 kilometres of perfectly groomed winter hiking trails and 50 kilometres of marked snowshoe trails and is in the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Reserve. One particularly popular destination for snowshoe walks in the Dolomites is the Tiers am Rosengarten area with the rustic Tschamin Valley.

Carriage rides across the UNESCO World Heritage

Experience the vastness of Europe’s largest high Alpine pasture during a sleigh ride across the Seiser Alm. To the rhythm of the horses’ hooves and to the sound of the bells on the bridle of the Haflinger horses you can explore the Seiser Alm nestled in a thick blanket.

Toboggan fun

The varied toboggan runs on the Seiser Alm and in the villages offer lots of fun. Beginners and tobogganing pros get their money's worth. You can get to the set-off point of the toboggan slopes easily still by cable car. Toboggans can be rented out straight from the mountain cabins, the mountain stations and ski rentals. TIP: tobogganing at the light of the full moon.

 

Ice skating in the Dolomites region Seiser Alm

In winter, the Völser Weiher lake is transformed into a fantastic outdoor ice rink against the imposing backdrop of the Schlern massif. On the natural ice rink, skating enthusiasts do their rounds, figure skaters perform impressive pirouettes and winter fans enjoy the peace and quiet in the middle of the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park. The ice skating rinks in Kastelruth, Seis am Schlern, and Tiers am Rosengarten are a popular meeting point for ice skating around the Seiser Alm.
