It’s not just about skiing!

Here are some things you can do without your skis

WINTER 2019/2020 – Some of us, when we see a mountain blanketed in pristine snow, can only think about how we would tackle the descent on our skis. Then of course there are others, like yourself, who would rather lose themselves in the silence of a snow-covered fir forest, take a walk along the shores of a frozen lake or maybe stop to gaze up at the white peaks as your breath forms wispy clouds in the cool air. In other words, relaxing experiences to help you get back in touch with nature.

In Trentino there are many ways to enjoy the mountains away from the ski slopes, to reinvigorate both mind and body and find your inner equilibrium. Here are our recommendations!

#1

An adventure in Klondike, Val di Sole

Have you ever read “White Fang”? No need to travel all the way to the Klondike to experience the thrill of a trip on a dog sled drawn by a team of huskies. This winter come and enjoy a ride through the snow-covered woodlands of the Val di Sole and relive the magic of Jack London’s novel.

#2

Snowshoeing in the Val di Non

If you want to take it easy, away from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine, and follow the tracks left by hares and deer in the snow, then there’s nothing better than some snowshoeing. In the Val di Non it’s possible to enjoy this experience in the company of the local mountain guides who know the trails like the back of their hands… even by night!

#3

Today I ride a bike, Alpe Cimbra

Outside the chalet the paths are covered with snow, but even this fails to curb your passion for two wheels. On the Alpe Cimbra you just have to hire a Fat Bike to ride safely on the routes between Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna.

#4

Yoga in the snow, Paganella

There’s no better way to begin your day: stretch your muscles, sharpen your self-awareness and simply relax on a soft yoga mat of pristine snow, the white peaks of the Brenta Dolomites looming before you.

#5

A jacuzzi at 2,500 metres, Madonna di Campiglio

If you would like to try a truly unusual experience then we suggest you make your way to the Wellness Centre of the Stoppani al Grosté restaurant. Located in the “Campiglio-Dolomiti di Brenta” ski area, the largest in Trentino, it’s accessible by cable car. Enjoy a glass of Trentodoc as you relax in a pool of bubbling water and gaze out across the Dolomites.

#6

An aperitif with a difference, San Martino di Castrozza

You can have an aperitif in an over-crowded bar with music blaring at top volume or, alternatively, head to the edge of the woods. Here you’ll find a bar sculpted from solid ice and illuminated by burning torches, overlooking the Pale di San Martino Dolomites at sunset. How do you get here? By snowmobile of course!
