Winter hiking, cross country skiing & co.

A winter holiday at the Nassfeld pass is the ideal opportunity to try out new types of winter sports.

The snowy romance of sceneries invites you to a snow shoeing tour. Step by step, you will tramp in deep powder snow and discover spots that are usually for snow rabbits and deer only.

Enjoy the lovely view of the Carinthian mountains on your hikes in winter wonderland. Many of the hiking trails can be used with strollers.

Adventure cross country skiing and dreamy winter times

  • 80 kilometres of cross-country ski trails (from easy to difficult), 2 high-altitude cross-country ski trails on the Nassfeld pass
  • 55 kilometres of winter hiking trails
  • 2 toboggan runs, 1 floodlit
  • 55 hectares of natural ice rink on lake Pressegger See
  • horse-drawn sleigh rides

Ice skater’s paradise in Carinthia

Ice skating and Alpine curling is an absolute must once lake Pressegger See (only a 30-minute drive from Gartnerkofel hotel) or lake Weißensee are frozen. And by the way: lake Weißensee is Europe’s largest permanently frozen and groomed natural ice rink. Even James Bond skated along these stunning ice arenas in chilly temperatures.

Open for new skills

A winter holiday at the Nassfeld pass is the ideal opportunity to try out new types of winter sports. Take the chance to try out the latest trends and gadgets in winter sports. For example, a mountain sled – the cross-country rally vehicle of all snow sleds, the tube – a winter tyre without steering or brakes – or the air-board, which lets you literally fly along the snow.

The legendary après ski party on our sunny terrace

Here’s to the tradition: Once a week we invite you to our “après ski party” with your host. Our sunny terrace converts into an après ski zone. The snow bar offers hot and cold drinks and – most importantly – our hearty pan of Frigga. Your host Martin cooks traditional specialities like Frigga, Gröstl, Rippalan – and that's always reason enough to treat yourself to something special!
