Fun for kids, relaxation for grown-ups
7 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
Fassalandia is a club made up of the best family hotels in Val di Fassa. You can enjoy the comfort of fine cooking and wellness centres, as well as flexible schedules to meet the needs of your little ones. Each week has its own action-packed schedule of fun for all the family, or tailored specially to kids.
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. And that’s not the only experience they can enjoy: there are also the sled dogs, huskies trained to pull a sled!
Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo
Local Mountain Guides organise snowshoeing excursions for the whole family, including children. This means that the routes are simple and not too demanding, so you can keep going all day. For an extra-special experience, we recommend an evening outing with dinner at a lodge.
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!
