Your digital detox holiday

6 ideas to get back in tune with nature

Forget notifications, ringtones, deadlines and appointments. What you need to do — what we recommend you do — is turn everything off. Put your smartphone and laptop in a drawer for a few days and just be still. It might be hard to imagine, but you can do it.

Take your time, walk through the trees and go deep into the woods. In Japan, this is called “Shinrin-yoku”, which means “forest bathing”. And after this metaphorical dive into the forest, it will be time to dip your toes into cool streams, for an all-natural kneipp experience. You can then finish with an outdoor yoga session, breathing in the fresh mountain air. With the help of guides and trainers, you will learn that turning everything off sometimes means only turning on what really matters.

Choose the activities that inspire you and breathe deep. 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 Lago delle Piazze.


Bushcraft, Val di Sole

No amount of Googling will help you. In the forests of Val di Sole, you will learn how to survive in the wild, from lighting a fire naturally to building an emergency shelter and reading the signs of the forest. You'll have a mountain guide by your side the whole time.


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.


Dolomiti Natural Wellness, Madonna di Campiglio

At the foot of the Italian Alps in Brenta, 'Dolomiti Natural Wellness' takes you into the wilds of the Adamello Brenta Park to try yoga, barefoot walking, and breathing exercises with your wellness trainer.


Brentanima, Dolomiti Paganella

Against the backdrop of the Brenta Dolomites, an experience of total wellness in body and mind. ‘Brentanima’ offers sensory walks, meditation, yoga, Ayurveda rituals and naturopathic treatments. You will be guided by holistic therapists, true wellness professionals.


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.
