Who would have thought it? Even though Defereggen valley is not densely populated and gives the impression that nature is the centre of attraction, there are a few winter sports which impressively confirm the variety on offer in Defereggen valley. In Defereggen valley you can’t talk about winter sport without mentioning ice-skating and curling.

There are three ice rinks in Defereggen valley - in Hopfgarten in Defereggen valley, in St. Jakob in Defereggen valley and in St. Veit. On all these ice rinks you not only get to glide sveltely and elegantly across the lovely ice surface, you can also indulge in the old art of curling. Keep these ice rinks in mind in case you haven’t done enough snow-shoe hiking or have done all the ski tours.

Ice rinks in the region:

In the town of St. Jakob there is an ice-skating rink and curling lanes at Sportstüberl (+43 (0)650 / 9123212), in St. Veit at Hotel Defereggental (+43 (0)4879 / 6644) and in Hopfgarten at the sports and leisure facilities (+43 (0)664 / 1833682).
