Overview

Join us for a return visit to Seefeld-Leutasch, Austria's top cross-country skiing destination with over 245 km of cross-country trails for skiers of all abilities. The region is protected to the south from the warm Föhn wind which often melts the snow in other resorts, while the Wetterstein mountains to the north shield Leutasch from the biting cold, letting the snow-laden clouds approach from the west. The result? A snow-capped region with a surprisingly pleasant climate. Fifty unique family-run restaurants are distributed throughout the entire ski area, allowing us to stop trailside every day for a hot lunch and a chance to warm up. Throughout our time together we will endeavor to enjoy and understand this wonderful region via the AMC's mission of education, conservation, and appreciation of the natural world. This trip can be enjoyed on its own or combined with #2324 XC Skiing in the Italian Alps for a two-week adventure through the Tyrolean Alps.
