With over 1,000 trees per inhabitant and over a third of its territory contained within natural parks and protected areas, Trentino is the ideal place to revitalise your body and mind thanks to experiences like “forest bathing”. This activity takes you deep into the woodlands and let’s you breathe in the pure air and its beneficial essences.

What could be better first thing in the morning than to sit outside in the sun and take a yoga lesson to get that blood flowing? To get a better feel of nature and the surroundings you can also try walking barefoot, maybe along one of the dedicated trails you’ll find in Trentino or let yourself be guided by a local expert.

And in the evening, nature continues to embrace you in the hotels and farmhouses with their country furnishings and wood panel walls.
