Holidays on the snow are unforgettable experiences, especially if spent together with your children. Here is our go-to guide to make the most of your family holiday on the snow!

From the gentle slopes of Alpe Cimbra and Paganella, where they can take the first steps on skis, to the most dramatic Dolomites of Val di Fiemme, Val di Fassa, San Martino di Castrozza - Passo Rolle or surrounded by Brenta Dolomites in Pinzolo & Madonna di Campiglio.

Val di Fassa

Here, waiting for you are the Fassalandia Hotels the ultimate experts in spoiling families. You won’t need to take all the extra equipment, no bottle warmer nor a highchair- to fathers’ relief who won’t break a sweat packing the car to the brim. Plus, in these hotels the entertainment is guaranteed six days a week, so mum and dad can finally relax and spend time together perhaps in the wellness centre. While on the slopes… there’s a world of wonder for the little ones: not only specialised ski schools with childcare service & nursery slopes, but also a baby parks- such as The Indian Village- where children can spend the whole day making new friends and lunch is included!


Val di Fiemme

Children will have endless fun with new friends, playing in the fresh air in the company of friendly instructors and qualified entertainers, while mum and dad will not feel guilty for enjoying their skiing or for soaking up the sunshine as, rest assured, the children will be in very good care. There’s a wealth of kindergartens in the area: don’t miss Cermislandia on the Alpe Cermis in Cavalese, Asilo Kinderheim Gardoné in Predazzo- where waiting for you is the Dragons Trail adventure – La Tana degli Gnomi in Bellamonte and the Bip Club in Pampeago. There are many Family Hotels catering for all families!


San Martino di Castrozza

Here, you are immersed in a deer kingdom, the Parco Naturale di Paneveggio with its centuries-old fir trees and the Pale di San Martino as the backdrop to your family holiday. The Dolomiti Family Fun weekly programme guarantees entertainment and relax for everyone: group lessons with specialised instructors, easy transport to the slopes with the Funny Skibus and the friendly Funny entertainers. The afternoon is packed with family activities like torch lit walks, cooking classes to learn the traditional art of baking strudel and delicious afternoon treats


Campiglio, Pinzolo e Val Rendena

Val Rendena has a wealth of initiatives and activities for children: Pinzolo is an ideal location for families with small children while Madonna di Campiglio is the place to go for keen piste bashers. In both locations, there’s certainly no shortage of mini-clubs and children entertainment -also at high altitude - like “Tana di Rendy” where children will enjoy plenty of playtime on the snow. For those looking for something different, there are woodland excursions on snowshoes with experienced guides, or night walks lit by glowing torches, or again the sensational experience of dog-sledging in the heart of Parco Adamello Brenta.


Altopiano della Paganella

With a customised offer for families and children, the Paganella area offers an avalanche of events and theme parks that are a joy not only for the little ones, but also for their parents, who in this way can enjoy relaxing moments and peaceful skiing outings. Thanks to the Paganella Kinder Club and the Fun Park, children can have fun every day in a different baby park, with bob sleds, sleds, and adrenaline-inducing snow tubing slopes. Kids can also try their hand at ice climbing, skating, reaching mountain huts by snowcat, enjoying a break in the magical igloo library, and learning to ski in the numerous school camps.
