Overview

Join an extraordinary Nordic ski trip to the Seefeld Plateau near Innsbruck, the site of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. In 2019 this region hosted the Nordic World Championships. There are 245 km of meticulously groomed XC trails, about half tracked for classic skiing and the other half for skate skiing. The trails take you through fields and hamlets with stunning views of the surrounding white-capped mountains. 15-30km daily intermediate-advanced Nordic ski expeditions guided by the trip's leader. We will be staying at a luxurious four star hotel close to the trail system that also provides us with excellent breakfasts and dinners. We will adjust to European time with a visit to Innsbruck, a UNESCO heritage site. This trip was successfully run in 2015, 2016, and 2018. The prospectus link below contains complete information including, on page two, a link to a five-minute video from the 2016 trip. Caution: watching this video may generate an overwhelming compulsion to sign up immediately! :) I
