7 soft experiences, to be enjoyed without skis

Experience the mountains in winter, to regenerate body and mind

WINTER 2021/2022 - Enjoying the mountains in winter, even without skis on, is an experience that restores your balance vis-à-vis the world. The cleanliness of the air, the scent of resin from the woods, the glow of the snow: in this setting it is easy to listen to one’s inner self, to search for oneself and to find a place to recharge.  No stress, no haste, just regenerate body and mind! 

But it’s not just the landscape around you. In Trentino, experiences also help you find yourself, free yourself from tiring work, deadlines and notifications. Pleasant moments, through woods and mountains, to feel at ease and forget everything else. Because it is in nature that you return to the basics, slow down your heartbeat and recharge your batteries. For body and mind.

For this reason, we have selected 6 experiences to live in nature without skis on and with the desire to look at the winter mountain holiday from another perspective.


Follow a trail, discover a life

The snow-covered nature of the Lavazé Plateau, in Val di Fiemme, is motionless only in appearance. To capture this concept, just look at the many footprints left on the snow by deer, roe deer, foxes and other wild animals. A walk in the woods that makes you discover surprising traces of life, while your footsteps intertwine with a thousand others.


On suspension and transparent bridges

The relaxing creaking of boots trampling the fresh snow, crisp mountain air and snow-covered fir trees: there is nothing more regenerating than a walk in nature in winter, especially through the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Nature Park. If you set out along the Marciò trail, you can cross two very special bridges: a suspension bridge and a bridge with a clear bottom.


Barefoot in the snow

Breathe, sink your bare feet into the soft fresh snow, feel the bitter cold and then immerse them in warm water in a warm-cold Kneipp style foot bath that will make you discover pleasant wellness feelings. You can try this experience in the company of an expert at the Millegrobbe Farmstead, in the Alpe Cimbra, surrounded by centuries-old woods and snow-covered meadows.


Discover your inner fire

You may not know it, but cold is good! It improves blood circulation, increases energy expenditure, promotes an anti-inflammatory effect and the activation of the immune system: all things you will discover in Madonna di Campiglio, in the company of Andrea Bianchi, barefooting and Hot Mind method expert; he will guide you to the nurturing of your inner fire.


A bath in the woods

Listen to the breath of the forest, immerse yourself in the vegetable vault built by branches and trunks, and touch the sturdy bark of a fir: the interaction between plants and human organism is called forest bathing, and it has a powerful positive effect on our immune and nervous systems. You can try it on the Paganella plateau, in the company of the holistic operators of Brentanima.


Just you and your horse

Hoof prints in the snow, your breath condensation, the silence of nature surrounding you, while you are riding your horse looking for new landscapes to discover. An experience to enjoy on the trails traversing the woods of the Piné Plateau and along the Lagorai chain.


Beyond skiing, at the foot of Pale di San Martino

The magic of snowy woods, the silence of nature in the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Nature Park, and the beauty of villages, until the end of March, San Martino di Castrozza, Passo Rolle, Primiero and Vanoi offer you many experiences to enjoy on the snow...beyond skiing!
