World championship cross-country skiing in Tirol
Anyone who comes to Tirol for cross-country skiing will get to experience world championship terrain.

From cross-country newbie to pro: Tirol's Nordic Team
Seven bloggers making up "Nordic Team Tirol" are facing a very special challenge this winter. Together with a professional trainer, they are getting ready for a major Nordic competition: the Tirolean Koasalauf in St. Johann in Tirol in February 2019. Alongside five partner regions, the Tirol Tourist Board is using the "Nordic Team Tirol" to promote the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships 2019 in Seefeld as well as the cross-country opportunities for tourists in the heart of the Alps.
Tyrol in winter: Snow-covered landscapes ideal for skiing, cross-country skiing and winter hiking
High mountains, deep valleys and, in winter, snow. Winter in Tirol offers travellers a whole range of holiday options: from skiing and freeriding to more gentle off-piste activities such as cross-country skiing, winter hiking, tobogganing and snowshoeing. Only one thing stays the same: it always ends in a cosy hut with a warming drink and perhaps even a tasty plate of Kaiserschmarrn.

Press Kit Seefeld
THE CRADLE OF CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: 1964. 1976. 2012. The Olympic flame has already burned three times in Seefeld. The suntrap on the high plateau has established itself as the centre for Nordic sports in ski-mad Tyrol. Back in the early 1960s in the Tyrol, it was considered a real curiosity to move on the flat with skis on your feet. It was trendier in those days to prove your courage on steep slopes and descents. But when Innsbruck was awarded the Winter Olympics in 1964, the Seefeld plateau offered perfect conditions for competitions in the Nordic disciplines.
A venue which combines history with tradition
"HAND IN HAND" is the motto of the Nordic hotspot Seefeld, which, together with Innsbruck, is hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 2019.
