Reinvigorate your body and mind in the Trentino winter
Top activities in the great outdoors
Spending time in the mountains in winter is a chance to set free your inner self and savour a fresh sense of peace and harmony as you let your body and mind unwind. In Trentino there are all sorts of ways to rediscover yourself, from snowshoeing in the woods and following mountain trails in a horse-drawn sleigh to trekking with alpacas and dog sledding. When it comes to enhancing your mental well-being, are you the kind of person who prefers candlelight drinks in the woods at sunset or a whirlpool bath on high with breathtaking views?
We know how hard it is to decide… You will just have to find out for yourself!
Have you ever read “White Fang”? You do not need to go all of the way to the Klondike to race along on a sled pulled by huskies. This winter, experience a spellbinding atmosphere reminiscent of Jack London’s novel in the snowy woods of the Val di Sole.
Horse riding in the Brenta Dolomites
Revel in the marvels of the silent, snowy natural environment during a horse riding trip or admire the spectacular mountains between Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo from the comfort of a horse-drawn sleigh. These are just two of the options provided by the stables in Val Rendena for horse riding enthusiasts and anyone who simply wants to savour a magical, relaxing experience in the peaceful, bright winter woods.
Visit the old Cimbra sawmill
There is always something magical about an old year ending and a new one beginning. Exploring the local area in the bracing air is a highly appealing prospect and the lights of the Alpe Cimbra homes encapsulate the warmth of the local hospitality. It is a great opportunity to visit the old sawmill of the Mein family, which is started up again and covered with festive lighting for the occasion. It is easy to reach thanks to a path lit by torches that leads from the village into the thick woods.
Travelling by carriage between the farms of the Val di Non
Just think how wonderful it would be to travel in a comfortable horse-drawn carriage at night, moving between farms as the snow sparkles in the moonlight. Alternatively, you could visit the large snow-covered clearings under the warm sun reflected in the frozen lakes of Ruffrè. In the Val di Non you will feel like you are living in a fairy tale!
Trekking with alpacas
The soft fleeces and gentle pace of alpacas are the perfect ingredients for a revitalizing, absorbing experience steeped in the natural beauty of the Valle di Cembra. On their farm, Silvio and Ilaria have been raising alpacas as pack animals for many years. You can get to know the creatures as you follow a delightful trekking route.
