It doesn’t always have to be about Alpine skiing. Nordic sports, such as cross-country skiing, or winter hiking are all the trend. The new Nordic Park in Saalfelden Leogang has taken up this trend with an area that offers kilometres of cross-country and winter hiking trails, as well as providing culinary highlights. The Nordic Park in Saalfelden offers “Nordic” fans of today a chance to participate in sports outdoors in a natural and relaxing environment because it is not just all about sport – but also an attitude towards life and connecting with nature and your inner self. So what does the Nordic Park at the Ritzensee have to offer?
The Park in Ritzensee, Saalfelden offers a versatile network of trails for cross-country skiers and biathletes, a Fun & Snow Park for children as well as some circular hiking trails, a natural ice-rink, and restaurants. The flood-lit cross-country trail (1.8 km) provide fun for those in search of late night fun.
As the youngest region of the Skicircus, the PillerseeTal is well-known as a true Nordic stronghold – not least because the town of Hochfilzen hosted the Biathlon World Championships in February 2017.
Fieberbrunn, the largest resort in the PillerseeTal, holds the strictly tested seal of quality. You can choose whether to glide with your cross-country skis in classic skating style through a winter wonderland with trails of just over 45 kilometres long, including the Weißach trail (9.8 km), easy Reither trail (1.7 km), which serves as a connection to the Dandler trail (10.4 km). From here you have the opportunity to reach the well-renowned Dominik-Landertinger Europa trail, the Biathlon hotspot in Hochfilzen.
Those who would like to follow in the tracks of world-class biathletes, the PillerseeTal offers the best opportunities. Here biathlon enthusiasts have the chance for a unique “behind the scenes insight to biathlon”. After a couple of rounds on the trail, you will be prepared to demonstrate your skills with a rifle.
