The Vitalpina Hotels of South Tyrol are all about holidays that are close to nature and create value.
Here are five things that you absolutely have to experience while on a Vitalpina holiday:
1. Walking barefoot over a meadow
A Vitalpina holiday means first and foremost immersing yourself in the natural surroundings of South Tyrol – so the first thing you should do is take off your shoes and go walking barefoot. Let the fresh grass of the lawn tickle your soles of your feet, but also be sure you delve into the forest and feel the contact with the damp earth there. An experience to stimulate the senses and trigger unexpected emotions!
Everything we need can be found in nature, including the Alpine herbs that grow wild in the mountain meadows: nettles, yarrow, thyme, lady’s mantle and many others. Our hoteliers use these herbs in wellness treatments, South Tyrolean cookery and natural remedies.2. Take a deep breath and recharge your batteries
Go out into the forest, take a look around, watch nature at work. Lie down in the grass and breathe in deeply. The Vitalpina “deep breathing” experience teaches you how to breathe, both deeply and consciously. Walking to the rhythm of your breathing will recharge mind and body with new energy and promote a deep self-perception. Whether you opt for the “forest bathing” experience, or for gentle nature hikes combined with breathing exercises, the positive effects will be seen in enhanced vitality, inner peace and concentration, all releasing new forces to increase your well-being.3. Indulge yourself with natural treatments
A Vitalpina holiday may be all about physical activity, exercise and excursions into the natural surroundings, but a Vitalpina holiday also offers valuable opportunities to rest and relax. Many Vitalpina hotels offer top-class recreational facilities, with swimming pools, saunas and relaxation rooms for guests to regenerate after a day spent out in the fresh air. Special attention is always paid to the natural world of South Tyrol and the valuable raw materials with which it fosters your feel-good experience. 4. Enjoy a zero-kilometre breakfast with a view
What does the perfect start to the day look like? What about beginning with a healthy breakfast, full of natural, unadulterated products, with views of the mountains and the South Tyrolean scenery: a precious moment that will set you up for the rest of the day! Breakfast here is a gastronomic treat, with most of the products – all of highest quality and definite origin – coming from South Tyrol. There are numerous zero-kilometre products from nearby farms, vegetable gardens and local producers — and often even from the hotel itself, as many of these grow their own fruit and vegetables and keep farm animals. 5. Leave your car at home
Pay attention to one point in particular when planning your Vitalpina holiday: leave your car at home and come by public transport. This is not only good for the climate, but also much easier and more relaxing. Recuperation begins once you start your journey here: you can read, chat, take a nap or enjoy the view from the window. Transfers to the hotel are also very straightforward with the new South Tyrol Transfer
service. You can set off on foot, right from your hotel, on hikes or excursions into the surrounding mountains – and forget all about long traffic jams and parking problems for the length of your stay.
So it’s off on holiday then: to one of the Vitalpina Hotels of South Tyrol,
