DAY 2: Lavazé
The cross-country skiing centre is located on the Lavazé Pass, on a plateau between Trentino and South Tyrol. The cross-country skiing network includes over 80 km of trails, perfectly groomed by a professional technical team. The enchanting view from the pass, the natural environment of the trails and the sun that shines on most of the route are the main features of this place, which is an ideal destination for all lovers of cross-country skiing. The connection with Oclini, a little higher up, has increased the number of possible routes and opened up the possibility of running until spring.
DAY 3: Seiser Alm (Alpe di Siusi) Rest day or excursion to Trento
The cross-country skiing network of the Seiseralm has a total of 80 kilometres of sunny trails at an altitude of between 1,800 and 2,200 metres. The trails are double or quadruple-tracked and excellently prepared. The landscape is truly unique - Sassolungo, Sassopiatto and Sciliar are within reach.
