For NON-skiers

Outdoor paradise

For those who want to enjoy a winter holiday without skiing, Ortisei and the surrounding Dolomites offer countless possibilities to enjoy nature in a sporty or leisurely way. Whether with a wellness day in the hotel's cozy SPA & Beauty farm or on the mountain: experience the winter holiday in the Dolomites from a completely new perspective!

Hiking & Walking

Numerous walking trails lead through snow-capped meadows, along frozen streams, past old farmhouses to viewpoints with resting benches and a magnificent view of our panorama - the villages, forests and peaks of Val Gardena valley and the Dolomites. Particularly popular are the short walk to Café Val d’Anna, the promenade to S. Cristina as well as the panorama trails on the Resciesa and Alpe di Siusi mountains.

Twice a week, one of our wellness staff accompanies our guests on a relaxing walk through the snow-covered Ortisei and its surroundings.

Guided snow shoe walks

Experience the liberating feeling of a snowshoe hike in the Dolomites. Twice a week, a professional mountain guide from the Catores mountain school accompanies our guests free of charge through the silence of the snowy mountain pastures and mountains.

If you prefer the adventure on your own, we are happy to advise you for an individual tour. Snowshoes are in any case available at the reception of the hotel free of charge.

Horse sledging

A horse-sleigh ride in the snow can hardly be surpassed in romanticism. From the mountain station of the Alpe di Siusi you can start your comfortable horse sleigh ride over Europe’s largest high alpine pasture. By a one or two horse sleigh you can easily reach the surrounding huts and mountain restaurants, where you can enjoy the day on magnificent sun terraces and incredible mountain scenery.

Tobogganing

What about tobogganing? From the top station of the Raschötz funicular railway in Ortisei, a toboggan run over 6 km takes you all the way down into town. Sled a few times to the middle station, enjoy a hearty lunch on one of the two mountain huts with incredible views and then ride down to the valley. It will be an unforgettable day! In addition to the Raschötzer Alm, the Alpe di Siusi offers 11 toboggan runs for beginners and tobogganing enthusiasts.

Gymnastics & Stretching

Three times a week we invite our guests to gentle gymnastics and stretching exercises with our wellness staff. In addition to our modern fitness room and the inviting swimming pool, this is a great opportunity to exercise without leaving the hotel.

 

Not enough?

Then try to glide over the ice rink of Ortisei, ride on a horseback in the snow-covered landscape, overfly the Dolomites with a parachute, stroll comfortably through the pedestrian zone of Ortisei or just let yourself be spoiled all day at Hotel Angelo Engel ...
