I don’t feel like skiing today!

Have fun in winter without skis

Picture the scene: you are having breakfast and looking out of the window of your chalet at the blanket of snow spread across the mountains and the pine and fir trees in the woods. It is the perfect day to introduce your children to the many different sides of mountain life in the winter. After all, there are lots of things to do in winter apart from skiing. Head out for little family adventures with gloves, boots and rosy cheeks in the winter breeze. 

If you are looking for an original experience in winter, in Trentino there are lots of options. Here are some suggestions!

#1

Exploring art and nature

Spend a morning or afternoon visiting Arte Sella, which is less than half an hour from Borgo Valsugana by car. Art and nature come together to create living works that you can see, touch… and even enter in some cases! There is no better way to venture into the world of art.

#2

A walk in the snow

Have you ever tried snowshoeing? It's the easiest way to walk on snow, and has been practised by the Huron people in Canada for centuries. In Vallagarina, there’s a loop route with a panoramic view that takes you all the way to Polsa, on the Brentonico Plateau. It's short but sweet, lasting just over 1 hour with lots of breath-taking scenery!

#3

The Biblioigloo

Instead of bookworms, in Paganella you might find “snow worms”! The area is home to a breathtaking dome-shaped library called the Biblioigloo. It is located on the Prati di Gaggia ski slopes, which are easy to reach in the Laghet-Gaggia cable car. In addition to books, newspapers and magazines, in the magical bubble 1333 m above sea level there are also workshops and a comfy corner for little ones

#4

Hole in one!

At Alpe di Folgaria-Coe they never stop thinking of ways for you to have fun! This year they have even provided a winter version of Disc Golf: an easy, entertaining sport for the whole family. Players move around a nine-hole course and the aim is to throw a special disc into a metal basket. Check out Europe’s top Disc Golf Park!

#5

Bedollo Winter Park

Discover the winter delights in Altopiano di Piné, which is heaven for snow lovers. There is something to suit all tastes at Winter Park Pradis-ci, near Lake Piazze, including tobogganing, skiing, snow tubing and sledding. Try out new sports thanks to the park's selection of courses for the whole family and its handy ski lifts and conveyor belts!
