Fun for kids, relaxation for grown-ups
8 top winter destinations with services tailored to families
What does it mean to spend your holiday in one of Trentino’s family-friendly destinations? Well, it means staying at a hotel with services that cater to your little ones, slopes for skiing and sledding, snowparks for kids, skiing classes with qualified instructors, and lots of activities in nature that are suited to the whole family.
So, while mum and dad relax in a wellness centre, the kids can have the time of their lives with magic carpets, mini obstacle courses on the snow, and learning to ski. Then, everybody can get together on the snow for a sled race or to embark on an adventure with local guides.
The list below has some of our best suggestions for family-friendly winter destinations for you: from the Pale di San Martino to the Brenta Dolomites.
Val di Fassa
With the Fassa Dolomites as a backdrop and the instructors of the Trentino Ski Instructors Association, learning to ski will be beautiful, fun and safe. The five schools in the valley have received the gold quality mark for the services offered and the high professionalism in teaching children. And they participate in the Dolomiti Superski promotions.
Val di Fiemme
“The Gnomes' Den”, “The Kingdom of Dragons”, “Cermislandia” and “Bip Club”: no, you haven’t stumbled into a cartoon, you’ve just discovered the magical realm of Val di Fiemme, where fully equipped Ski-Kindergartens are run by qualified leaders. Between games, your children will get to know their 3 lovable mascots, Skiri, Bip and Fondolo.
San Martino di Castrozza
In the ski area of San Martino di Castrozza and the Rolle Pass, local ski schools have over 100 qualified teachers on their slopes, ready to make sure your little champions have a great time in complete safety! There are also lots of other activities to enjoy on the snow, from journeys by horse-drawn carriage to a ride on a snowcat.
This entire destination is one immense playground! For bigger kids, there are slopes for snow rafts and sleds, a giant slide and a piste with mini-quads, while younger children can have fun on the inflatables. What’s more, there are also mini-clubs, classes, walks in nature and much, much more.
What fun it is to cycle and sled on the snow! In Alpe Cimbra your children can try riding a fat-bike, so called because of its chunky tyres, designed specially for cycling on a blanket of snow.
Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo
In the natural setting of the Brenta Dolomites, a World Heritage Site, a holiday for children and parents will be simple and worry-free, entirely dedicated to leisure and the discovery of the landscape. Many, many services and organised activities!
Val di Sole
In Val di Sole, your children can go skiing in a protected area. Pejo 3000, in the Stelvio National Park, is the world’s first plastic-free ski area. Enjoy snowparks, skiing schools and fun slopes, as well as the magical cable car ride to an altitude of 3,000m!
Polsa - San Valentino
