Seefeld is a year round Austrian holiday destination, which also happens to have a ski area attached to it. Unlike other resorts, the skiing doesn’t take centre stage.
Instead there is a wealth of other winter activities on offer such, from the fairly standard skating, to the outlandish snowshoe-yoga. There’s also some of the best cross-country skiing in the Alps. For many that’s a bit too much activity, so relaxing in one of the many excellent spas, taking a long lunch or gentle snowy walk is actively encouraged.
The resort is a charming Tyrolean town with a lot of swanky hotels and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. It’s a wonderful place for taking it slow, treating yourself and enjoying a winter break in beautiful alpine scenery.
The skiing is well suited to beginners, and Seefeld is a great option for first time skiers. There are some good nursery slopes at the village, and some gentle slopes higher up to progress too. Intermediates wanting to go at a relaxed pace will also enjoy the skiing. There are some challenging runs, but keen skiers will probably get bored of the slopes fairly quickly.
Seefeld’s proximity to Innsbruck make it a great option for people wanting a short break in the mountains, in a real winter-wonderland destination, with a bit of skiing on the side.
