Imagine getting up when you feel like it one morning after an abundant night time snowfall. You’re on winter holidays in the Dolomites and have all the time in the world. As you lean out of your terrace, the sun has already begun to take its place in the sky, the few remaining clouds are gradually melting away and, before turning your attention to a tasty, filling breakfast, you enjoy the blue-white contrast, the light of the sun and the crisp pure air directly from your accommodation.
The spectacle is one you’ll never get used to. Magnificent. The view stretches from sky to land, from the sparkling white Dolomites horizon to pine forest cloaked in snow, the sun shining on the roofs of the houses which seem to be enjoying their new, white cloak. Everywhere there is silence with even the slightest noises reaching you muffled and distantly. The sensation is one of peace and quiet and the day begins with a dream. This is the very soft impact of a winter in San Vigilio di Marebbe and San Martino in Badia and it is certainly one of the best reasons for a winter holiday in the South Tyrol. But it certainly isn’t the only one.
A winter holiday here in the South Tyrol is a complete holiday, offering all the pleasures, sports and thrills you’re looking for. From the morning on, as we have seen! Sunny days - an extremely high percentage even in winter - mean that the cold will not put you off and you’ll be keen to get out and enjoy a bit of free time.
Whether you appreciate a little well-deserved solitude or you’re looking for company and fun, here in beautiful Badia you’ll always find what you’re looking for.
From winter sports like downhill skiing, Nordic ski or sledging to walks and trips out with snowshoes, romantic horse-drawn sledge trips, tasty Ladin dinners and fun evenings in the refuges. On your own, in groups, couples or families with children, whether you’re looking for a thrill or the most complete peace and quiet, winter in our Dolomites, UNESCO natural heritage site, is a not-to-be-missed holiday and a sure winner. For everyone!
