Black Forest Cross-Country Skiers' Paradise

Overview

A week of discovering landscapes and exploring regions, lakes and forests with a thin layer of magic, and skiing through this magic is what makes this tour a winter wonderland.

As we ski each day from one village to another, we explore the deep pine forests, open valleys and meadows of the wonderful Black Forest. We stay in family-run hotels and spend one night in a homestay, getting an opportunity to experience more of the local life and culture.

This tour is undoubtedly one of the most memorable tours & is definitely every Cross-Country Skiers' Paradise.
