3. Aroma oil massage with South Tyrolean essences in the Therme Meran spa
After an active day on the slopes, there is nothing better than a relaxing massage. Soothing South Tyrolean-style massages
featuring natural ingredients
are available at the Therme Meran spa
and many of the surrounding hotels. For example, an aromatic oil massage featuring natural South Tyrolean essences is particularly recommended for its calming effect on the autonomic nervous system.
4. Hygge: enjoy the slow pace of winter
At the idyllic, romantic Vigiljoch
located on Lana’s local mountain, visitors can enjoy skiing the way it once was: the high plateau is car-free
, the gentle and sunny slopes are a paradise for nostalgics
, and the snow-covered forests are a place of tranquillity. Here, kids can play in the snow, sledge and learn to ski without a care in the world.
5. Standing tall on a glacier
A trip to the Schnalstal Glacier
is certainly one of the most impressive winter experiences. The glacier became world famous almost 30 years ago when the world's most famous mummy, Ötzi
, was found there. While kids busy themselves looking for the perfect place to take a selfie with the glacier (at this altitude the glacier is quite spacious and flat), parents can indulge in a fine glass of wine and excellent food at the huts.
6. Night skiing by floodlight
Those overnighting in the Plan ski area
will never be more than three minutes from the closest lift when they wake up. This small village in the Passeiertal valley knows exactly how to offer its guests the perfect car-free
winter holiday. The magical landscape was named "Alpine Pearls
" and is one of the most beautiful gems in all of the Alps. Highlight: Free night skiing with floodlights is offered every Thursday at the Gampen lift.
7. Marvel at the snow art in the Ultental valley
The Bärenhöhle (bear cave) ski kindergarten at the Schwemmalm ski area
in the Ultental valley always showcases winter’s creative side. Children’s eyes will light up as they admire the huge snow castle
. In the morning, young skiers practice their first turns close to this landmark before enjoying lunch all together. In the afternoon, kids can do handicrafts, paint and play.
