Large cross-country diversity
Relaxed gliding along the Gosaubach stream, solitary tours below the mighty peaks of the Gosaukamm, sprawling trails through Goau Vordertal: The Dachstein Salzkammergut holiday region provides 65 kilometres of perfectly groomed trails for winter sports enthusiasts.
For both skaters and for fans of the classic style, they vary not only in altitude and degree of difficulty, but also characterised by great diversity: the 10 km long “Märchenwaldloipe” (enchanted forest trail) is definitely one of the most beautiful. Those seeking a challenge, are best suited to the 5km “Sportloipe“ (sport trail). For first-timers and beginners we recommend the 5-km “Sonnenloipe” (sunny trail). At 15 kilometres, the intermediate “Dorfloipe“ (village trail) is the longest tour in the Gosau Valley. Whichever you decide to do: you are guaranteed an unforgettable day of cross-country skiing in Gosau!
