Alpine summer at Alpe di Siusi | World Heritage UNESCO
Vie ferrate and alte vie
A rocky peak, the green of the trees, a little snow in the shaded gorges: in such images the Dolomites have become famous all over the word. The Vie Ferrate or "equipped climbing paths" are difficult stretches of excursion trails or climbing routes that have been made more accessible by the addition of metal fixtures of various sorts. Or just enjoy the pure air, the perfect hiking trails and the beautiful landscape of the Alpe di Siusi.

Alpine wellness vacations in South Tyrol
Traditionally, mountain people tended to have to rely on themselves to find their way out of precarious situations. The healing powers of the body, therefore, were of utmost importance to the locals, and they used herbs and plants to help themselves. It is thanks to this that today the inhabitants of the area have collected a wealth of knowledge of the local nature and its healing potential.
Thus, in our hotel we focus on healthy, natural treatments using local herbs and substances, such as hay baths, common spruce steam baths, apple and rose hip treatments, Vitalpina massages, herbal stamp massages, sound massages and many other services.
