Toblach is the cross-country skiing hotspot of the Hochpustertal valley, with a 200-kilometre network of perfectly manicured trails at your fingertips, leading past atmospheric larch trees, quaint hay barns and the unique rocky masterpieces of the Dolomites. Toblach is part of Dolomiti Nordicski, the world’s largest cross-country ski circuit, which gives access to 1,300 kilometres of trails in the Dolomites with one single ski pass.
And if that is not enough, starting from Christmas the floodlit trail around the Nordic Arena stadium in Toblach is also open from every day from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Dolomiti Nordicski is the largest cross-country ski network in the world. In the area of Toblach alone it comprises 110 km of trails, including 17 km of easy (blue) trails, 71 km of medium-difficulty (red) trails and 22 km of difficult (black) trails.
A 200-km network of interconnected trails with the Dolomites always in sight: you can start by the Pragser Wildsee lake and ski as far as the Fischleintal valley near Sexten. In Toblach there are also FIS trails and the Nordic Arena, the local cross-country skiing centre. With the 3 Peaks Dolomites cross-country ski pass, you can indulge your hobby as far afield as in Cortina.

Toblach hosts international-level competitions such as the Tour de Ski World Cup. The starting and finishing points of the races are at the Nordic Arena, which features an interesting detail: the trail leads directly to the top of the building. Other popular highlights include the Pustertaler Ski Marathon (60 km in classic style) and the Toblach-Cortina race (classic 50 km, skating 32 km).
For cross-country skiers who prefer to take it slowly and enjoy the view, rather than compete, we recommend the easy tours in the valleys surrounding Toblach, to Innichen and Niederdorf or along the Höhlensteintal valley.
One of the most scenic tours in the Hochpustertal valley leads from the Fischleintal valley near Sexten to Toblach. The starting point is easily reached by bus. From there the route leads mostly downhill to Sexten and on to Innichen, then through the Pustertal valley back to Toblach. There are several points where you can shorten the route by taking the bus, making the tour a good choice for beginners and experienced skiers alike.
