The organisers of the Biathlon Olympics 2026 have recognised that the nearby Südtirol Arena Alto Adige biathlon and cross-country skiing centre offers the perfect conditions for competitive winter sports. But both amateur and professional athletes get their money’s worth when cross-country skiing in the Antholz Valley when they take advantage of the amenities of the family-run 3-star superior Hotel Vierbrunnenhof.
A cross-country skiing and biathlon centre within walking distance
60 kilometres of cross-country ski trails wind their way through the sun-kissed yet snowy Antholz Valley. The Südtirol Arena Alto Adige biathlon and cross-country skiing centre uses this sports infrastructure for members and visitors who want to test their accuracy on holiday.
Everything is already in place for the 2026 Olympics, when biathletes from around the world will descend upon the Antholz Valley for cross-country skiing. And it’s just a stone’s throw from the Vierbrunnenhof, so you can be on the nearest trail in just 5 minutes.
Europe’s largest cross-country skiing carousel
Athletes who do not feel challenged by the cross-country skiing opportunities in Antholz can find sheer endless possibilities on the trails in the attractive neighbouring regions: the Gsies Valley, the Plätzwiese plateau or Toblach/Cortina. Still not enough? Then Dolomiti Nordicski, Europe’s largest cross-country skiing carousel, will be just the ticket. All you need is a ski pass to explore more than 1,300 kilometres of trails in 12 regions. Regardless of your abilities and fitness levels, there is always a suitable route to be found here.
But don’t forget to make it back to the Vierbrunnenhof in the evening in good time, otherwise head chef Konrad will be waiting in vain with various delicacies of South Tyrolean cuisine.
