Breathe, you are in Trentino

8 proposals to realign your rhythms with those of nature

Close your eyes and breathe. Can you smell the scent of resin? Can you hear the gentle melody of the water as the stream flows again after winter? Smells, sounds, sensations. A panacea for the body. And refreshing water for the mind.

The Japanese have always celebrated forest immersion. They call it “Shinrin-yoku”, meaning “forest bathing”. Here in Trentino, you can combine this Oriental practice with barefoot walking, or the Kneipp path in the cold water of the streams. And with an outdoor yoga session with a view of the Brenta Dolomites.

We call it spring awakening and we celebrate it with numerous wellness activities to be enjoyed outdoors, to feel good in every sense and with all the senses. Choose the experience that most inspires you and breathe. You’re in Trentino!



Beewellness, Altopiano di Pinè

Aromatherapy and bees come together and we get “apisound”. Savour the sweetness of mountain honey, the scent of propolis and discover how relaxing and calming the sound of buzzing bees can be. Experience “beewellness” on Altopiano di Pinè.


The Edelweiss eco-wellness path, Val di Sole

A date to be enjoyed throughout the summer in Peio. Olga will warmly welcome you to her organic nursery. As a naturopath and holistic practitioner, she’ll explain to you the benefits of the various medicinal plants, phytotherapy and green mindfulness techniques. You’ll learn simple wellness practices that you can use whenever you wish.


Forest bathing, Dolomiti Paganella

The Japanese call it “Shinrin-yoku” (forest bathing). You immerse yourself in the woods and walk very slowly for hours. Experience this at Parco del Respiro in Fai della Paganella, a vast forest full of Norway spruces, pine trees, larches, but mostly beech trees, which more than the others, release beneficial plant substances.


Barefoot Trail, San Martino di Castrozza

The first town in Italy to take part in the Barefoot Academy project founded by Andrea Bianchi, San Martino di Castrozza boasts three well-organized trails for this barefoot experience. Use the QR Codes along the trail to access the video tutorials.

Barefoot & Massage Experience, Alpe Cimbra

Kick your shoes off! This experience is designed to be a treat for bare feet. Free your feet to maximise the benefits of a walk through nature and a massage using reflexology techniques. Embrace a rich tapestry of tactile, visual, acoustic and olfactory sensations with every step.


The water itineraries, Madonna di Campiglio

These are walks at low and medium altitudes in the Adamello Brenta Park, where water flows, or where it reflects the surrounding scenery. Waterfalls, streams and small lakes: the sound of water accompanies you on this experience of nature as it awakes.
