Marcialonga - The Queen of Cross Country Races

Join our tour to Italy and experience the most beautiful tracks in the lovely Dolomites! At the end of January, Italy's equivalent to Vasaloppet is held. Classical Marcialonga invites you to 70 or 45 kilometers of public party through 13 small mountain villages surrounded by majestic limestone mountains. The setting is outstanding.

We stay centrally in Moena, where the race starts, and enjoy good dinners when our muscles have limbered up in the hotel spa. On the days before and after the race, you can ski in the famous cross-country areas San Pellegrino, Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa.

If you want to ski down-hill, the possibilities are super. You can easily reach the enormous Dolomiti Superski with Val Gardena, Canazei and Arabba as hubs. We promise delightful nature experiences, fantastic skiing and divine Italians who master the art of making you feel welcome. Good food and drinks is a nice bonus.

For the 11th year in a row, we have received confirmed registrations in Marcialonga where all participants get the latest information straight from the organizer. We are also official tour operator partner to Marcialonga which entitles you and us further advantages. The tours are popular and so far always fully booked at an early stage. Welcome to join us to Italy!
