RELAXATION, SPORTS, HEALTH AND WELL BEING
Based on our experience, we think you will be particularly happy with your holidays, if you are a family with children and/or couples/friends wanting to enjoy the many possibilities for sports/hiking/skiing during all seasons and the great nature in this lovely valley in the mountains with the fjord-like Lake Achensee. Through the fresh mountain air you will be particularly tired during the first days of your stay and sleep a bit more than usually - but it is exactly this fact that will help you to recover completely from the stress of daily live and regain energy and finish your holidays with a feeling of being completely relaxed and regenerated.
For cross country skiing, there is a large variety of very attractive tracks (70 miles) in the whole region, so that you will enjoy a weeks cross country skiing (and more) whether you are a beginner, intermediate or expert skier. If you want mainly skating (not classic) tracks, the choice of tracks is a bit lower.
If you take a ski pass for more than 3 days, consider taking a ski pass not only for the ski resort Christlum, but the whole "Achensee Region" . There are two smaller ski resorts close by (Maurach & Pertisau) - with impressive views on the lake, reachable by car or bus.
The Christlum ski resort provides some excellent runs - but is probably too small for you for a whole week of "every day skiing" for expert skiers. You should consider taking the Achensee region ski pass for several days. Skiing a few days at Christlum ski resort + maybe a morning / afternoon in the two other ski resorts at lake Achensee. For a few other days, we suggest you move to the Zillertal, reachable by car - with EXCELLENT skiing in huge ski resorts.
House rules- Bookings usually Saturday to Saturday only. We do make expceptions though´. Please contact me quickly before your booking, if you want to arrive/depart on another day than Saturday.
