Explore South Tyrol - Four Alternative Ways to Discover the Mountains

Hotel Quelle Nature Spa Resort in the Dolomites is the ideal base to explore South Tyrol. The hotel is surrounded by breath-taking scenery and located where the three valleys of Casies, Pustertal and Gsies meet. Travel PR agency Pilot PR shares four alternative ways to discover the mountains.


Hotel Quelle’s ethos is based on the healing power of nature and the importance of active relaxation. Guests are really encouraged to get out and about, to really explore this remarkable landscape and to fully immerse themselves in nature. The hotel organises a wide range of different discovery activities from Nordic walking and e-biking, to more novel and quirky ways to explore the mountain.

With so many different ways to discover the area, guests at Hotel Quelle and their sister property Chalet Salena, can tailor their stay to suit their interests and fitness levels. Here are four alternative ways to explore the valleys and mountains of South Tyrol:

On Segway

Hotel Quelle Nature Spa Resort recently added Segways to the activities they offer. Starting from €29 per day, guests aged 15 and over, can have fun finding their balance whilst venturing off-road to independently explore the region. The perfect way to get older children outdoors!

Explore On Foot - Hiking and Nordic Walking

The area surrounding Hotel Quelle Nature Spa Resort is a paradise for hikers. There are numerous sign-posted hiking trails on the hotel’s doorstep. These trails range in difficulty, from easy hikes perfect for families, to more challenging trails aimed at experienced hikers.

Hotel Quelle provides an interactive hiking map to help guests plan their route as well as complimentary Nordic walking poles. The fitness team can give a demonstration on the correct technique for using the poles, to ensure a full body workout which impacts less on joints. Nordic walking burns approximately 20 per cent more calories than walking, and so it is an excellent way to keep fit. Whether hiking or Nordic walking, visitors will be met with breath-taking vistas of the Dolomites.

On Two Wheels - Cycling & Biking

In addition to numerous hiking paths, there are also several cycling paths leading from Hotel Quelle and Chalet Salena. They both offer a wide choice of bikes, from mountain bikes, to electric bikes and fat bikes. Private vital instructors will also lead guided cycling tours. Visitors wishing to further improve or perfect their cycling skills can visit the MTB School; they offer tours and more technical training.

From the Air - Tandem flights across South Tyrol

Guests searching for a more adventurous way to explore the area will enjoy a para-gliding flight. The Gsies Para-Alpine Club offer flights for beginners and experienced fliers alike. Those without any experience can fly in tandem with experienced instructors, whilst confident fliers can strike out on their own. The flights offer the chance to see the Gsies valley from another perspective, with spectacular views stretching for miles. It's sure to be an unforgettable experience.

After days spent exploring South Tyrol, guests can continue their active relaxation at Hotel Quelle itself. The impressive wellness facilities include seven pools, an indoor-outdoor heated pool, a biological bathing pond, and a Kneipp barefoot walking path set within 5000 m² of gardens with wonderful mountain views. There is also a fully-equipped gym and a full-service spa with 13 treatment rooms, 10 steam and sauna rooms, and a host of treatments and therapies on offer.

Alternatively, guests can stay at the luxurious serviced apartments at Chalet Salena, which are ideal for those who want the freedom of staying in their own private apartment but who also want access to all the services and facilities of a five star hotel & spa.

Hotel Quelle Nature Spa Resort encourages visitors to fully immerse themselves in the landscape and culture of South Tyrol, to harness the healing power of nature. How will you explore this incredible region?
