Read reviews and enjoy exclusive savings on Exodus 8 Day Cross-country Skiing Dobbiaco. Cross-country skiing is a fantastic way to explore the jagged limestone peaks of the Dolomites. With pre-cut tracks (known as loipes) offering a network of routes on varying terrain, there is something for everyone. Unlike downhill skiing, this is more of an aerobic workout and not all about speed. Crucially, cross-country skis can be used on flats, descents, and even ascents with the right technique.
Dobbiaco, set at 3,940ft (1,200m) above sea level in the heart...read more of the region, is one of our most popular centres, offering weeks at Beginner to Advanced level. Our base is the welcoming hotel run by the Tschurtschenthaler family, where warm hospitality and comfortable surroundings provide the perfect balance to an active itinerary.
Our trip starts in the lovely village of Dobbiaco, in South Tyrol, just over the border from Austria. Settle in and take advantage of the hotel facilities.
Each day our leader chooses routes according to the grade and snow conditions. Many kilometres of valley tracks offer wonderful options for beginners and improvers. Some begin from Dobbiaco itself; for others, we make use of the local transport network. For more advanced skiers, there are tougher routes, such as the track that leads south to Cortina d'Ampezzo, a memorable trail among spectacular mountains, passing under the triple rock buttresses of the imposing Tre Cime di Lavaredo. In a typical week, the group will cover more and more ground, taking in everything this beautiful region has to offer. There are opportunities for coffee breaks and, of course, photo stops as we spend our week framed by the towering limestone peaks synonymous with the region (B/D).
Today is usually free to relax at the hotel, stroll around town or choose an optional activity such as self-guided snowshoeing or perhaps a visit to one of the local museums (B).
The Sexten and Prags valleys offer a choice of undulating routes in typical Dolomites scenery and the high Plaetzwiese Plateau also offers superb routes at about 6,560ft (2,000m). By this stage of the week, even beginner groups will have mastered the basics, such as how to turn and stop, ascend and descend safely. More advanced groups will have already covered some of the fantastic secluded routes and the leaders will ensure the final few days are used for the simple pleasure of gliding through such a beautiful natural environment (B/D).
Our trip ends after breakfast. We say goodbye to the Tschurtschenthaler family and begin our return journey home (B).

So good, I stayed an addiitonal week!! 1Penny, NSW, Australia, Feb 2022
Brilliant week with Exodus, cross-country skiing in Dobbiaco. The tour leaders, Michele and Alex, really make the difference. The Hotel Tschurtschenthaler is family owned & operated, and provided the perfect base for the skiing program - comfortable airy rooms, great breakfasts & dinners, and a magnificent Wellness Spa after a big day skiing. The skiing program itself was well organised, with full instruction & guiding provided by our leaders. Michele went above and beyond in his care of us, arranging for activities and dinner on our "free" day and ensuring that everyone was happy and safe. The program was so good that i changed my itinerary and stayed an additional week! Booking my holiday through Georgie at Global Journeys was easy and efficient. I was kept informed along the way.
