More Winter Activities

Mother Nature, in her white dress, is as silent as can be. Snow covers the land. Winter in the countryside here is quiet. The winter sun glistens in the snow and warms the skin. Activities in the fresh air draw you outdoors. Winter can be so astonishingly diverse. 

Alpine Skiing

We are just 20 minutes from Carinthia's biggest ski area. With ski rentals, a ski depot, parking, free ski bus as well as ski courses for children and adults. We are happy to make all the arrangements for you. Daily ski passes are also available through us for a discounted price (as long as supplies last). No need to stand in line. And best of all - after you're done for the day, you can ski all the way back to the daberer. No noise from the pistes. No après ski. Instead, wonderful peace & quiet and being able to unwind in our But beforehand, slice down the perfectly groomed, variety-packed pistes of the Nassfeld ski area. For families with small children, we recommend the smaller, more intimate family ski area in neighboring Kötschach-Mauthen.

Cross-Country Skiing

Get on the right track as you explore the countryside. Gliding along the cross-country trail in step to your own rhythm. You will be overcome by a sense of lightness. And it's healthy, too. It strengthens your cardiovascular system, improves stamina, and is gentle on your joints. And there's definitely no shortage of variety. Trails along the banks of the Gail. On the Italian side in Timau. In Obertilliach, home to the Lesachtal Biathlon Center, and in Nassfeld. We have equipment (skis, boots and poles) for you to borrow for free. From January until the beginning of March, our activity program includes a once-weekly XC expedition led by Willi Daberer. 


The snow crunches beneath your feet. You lay the tracks for others to follow. The cold becomes secondary. As you walk, you become pleasantly warm. The sun does its part. Winter air and complete peace & quiet. You are alone in nature. No hint of stress. The forest opens up to reveal an expansive view. Of white, rugged peaks. It's difficult to escape the sense of astonishment. As part of our winter program, our guide will lead you to some of the most beautiful places. Snowshoes are available to borrow at the reception (for a small fee).

Ice Skating

Shooting across the natural ice. An outing to Weissensee or Presseggersee definitely has its rewards. Both of these lakes treat you to the sight of astonishingly beautiful landscapes. In the midst of them, the lake itself. Flanked by mountains. Glide weightlessly across the ice and marvel at the glorious nature. At Weissensee, they also offer ice skates to rent.
