This sport combines the “technical” pleasures of skiing with the freedom of nordic skiing. One can ride on skis climbing up and sliding down. Thus, one can explore many alpine trails which are also practised in summer, but in winter, they become exquisite. In Tara Dornelor the cross-country skiing can be practised on trails from Suhard, Giumalau or Calimani mounts. The ridge of Suhard offers a trail with higher safety and fantastic scenery during the whole journey.

Info: The Ecotouristic Association Tara Dornelor with Calimani National Park Administration offer one day package holidays on cross-country skiing trails.
