Between ice and snow: the cream of the winter crop
Prepare to be amazed: introducing the most mind-blowing and original experiences for you to try!
WINTER 2020/2021 – Stay out on the snow after it gets dark – when the Trentino sky is studded with stars and the air is even more bracing – and spend the night in an igloo.
If that is not adventurous enough for you, revel in the thrills of a descent on virgin slopes with an Alpine Guide or ride a bike downhill in the untamed natural environment. Or are you feeling brave enough to go paragliding so that you can admire the mountains from above?
Have an unbeatable winter with this selection of exhilarating activities.
A night in an igloo in Campiglio
Spend the night in an igloo and take home unforgettable memories from your holiday. The serene, spellbinding atmosphere will make you feel like you are in a snow kingdom in a fairy tale. In the heart of the Parco Naturale dell’Adamello Brenta (nature park), local guides will take you on a snowshoeing trip to a small clearing in the woods, where you can enjoy the silence and the natural surroundings in an enchanting little house made of snow.
Freeride skiing… a ride to freedom
Standing in the wilderness, contemplating the silence of the mountains, waiting to hit the slope. Finally, you take a deep breath and you’re off! Navigating your own way down a pristine slope of powdery snow is something that truly sums up the essence of freeride skiing. In the Val di Sole, in the Pontedilegno-Tonale ski area, the “Sgualdrina” is the epitome of off-piste trails.
Fat biking in Paganella
If you cannot get enough of cycling and want to explore the local area even when there is snow on the ground, we have got just the thing for you! Fat Bikes have special extra-large tyres and they are specially designed so that you can ride safely along snow-covered trails in the woods. Check out the wide range of routes in Paganella and if you want a helping hand, choose an E-Fat: an electric fat bike with a pedal-assist system.
Icefalls to conquer
When you gaze upon a frozen waterfall your heart may skip a beat, but once you start climbing, it will definitely start racing! If you’re an ice climbing enthusiast, grab your ice axes, crampons and ice pitons and head to the Valle di Daone. In this “little Canada” you’ll find over 140 icefalls and frozen waterfalls that cater for all levels of difficulty.
Ski mountaineering at night
Put on your skins and follow a special route up to the Graffer mountain hut at night. Ski mountaineering is an increasingly popular sport that you can now enjoy safely from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm every Monday and Thursday. A dedicated route on a forest road will take you from Fortini to the Graffer mountain hut. You can eat there or go to the Boch hut, which is also open for dinner.
Ice diving in a lake
As part of a breathtaking event, at night stunning lighting equipment is set up on the frozen surface of Lake Serraia, presenting a unique opportunity for experienced divers and amazing sights for spectators! Participants take part in two days of training with instructors from the Trento-based Archeo Sub group, during which they learn how to free dive and scuba dive under the ice.
Flying over the Fassa Dolomites
Everyone has dreamed or fantasized about flying at some stage. From the top of Col Rodella in Val di Fassa you can launch yourself into the sky in a tandem paraglider with a nationally qualified instructor and look down on the world from above. If you are brave enough to try it, you will be rewarded with heavenly sights as you float through the air like an eagle and experience the Dolomites from a whole new point of view.
