6 things to do on Valentine's Day in the mountains

1) Admire the Dolomite Enrosadira. Spending a night in one of the mountain refuges is the best way to admire the fiery sunrises and sunsets. At Col Gallina, in Cortina d'Ampezzo, you can enjoy this spectacle from the front row in the Starlight Room Dolomites 360°, the mobile room made of fir wood and with glass walls, capable of rotating on itself 360° to enjoy a breathtaking view of Lagazuoi, Tofana di Rozes and Sass de Stria.

2) Skiing in the presence of the Dolomites. On the most romantic day of the year, a day on skis with your sweetheart is a must. The Dolomites are home to the largest ski resort in the world with over 1,200 km of perfectly groomed pistes, accessible from November until early April, and 12 ski areas that can be accessed with a single ski pass. A Valentine's Day between romance and snow sports!

3) Have you ever been to a spa? In Val di Fassa there is Alloch, the only sulphur spring in Trentino. The thermal water obtained from it is used to feed all the indoor practices, swimming pools and outdoor pools of QC Terme Dolomiti. In this place in the Fassa Dolomites you can relax and recover from winter ailments thanks to the therapeutic, regenerating and healing powers of the QC Terme waters. With a steam bath, in Ladin 'bagn da tof', one contributes to an increase in well-being, to the care of the body and one's spirit by purifying the skin, relaxing and loosening the muscles. In addition to the thermal area, one can also treat oneself to a massage or treatment that helps to increase the immune system, reducing stress, loosening the tissues and muscles and infusing the body with a feeling of relaxation and tone.

4) Ride with the snowcat to a hut dinner. At the Burz mountain hut in Arabba, wrapped in a woollen blanket, accompanied only by the sound of uncontaminated nature and caressed by the warm rays of the sun, couples can enjoy unique moments full of intimacy.

5) Sleeping a night in an igloo. Definitely a thrilling adventure, but perfect for those looking for 'out of the ordinary' adventures and intimate moments. A wonderful gift for your partner is a night in an igloo, i.e. a snow house, in Val Senales at an altitude of almost 3,000 metres, in the Valli di Tures e Aurina in the Speikboden/Monte Spicco ski area, in Madonna di Campiglio or at Passo Tonale. Contrary to expectations, the temperature under the snow dome does not drop below zero like the temperature outside. So all you need are some soft blankets, candles and a sleeping bag to enjoy a unique experience cuddled up to the person you love most. What more could you want?

6) Week of love. We cannot fail to mention Cortina, the Queen of the Dolomites, among the most romantic places in the mountains where to spend a fairytale Valentine's Day. At the Averau hut, the night of Valentine's Day is celebrated with a dinner at an altitude of 2,400 metres, on the panoramic terrace in a strategic position on the Belluno Dolomites. The Batticuore menu or the Love menu feature exquisite alpine cuisine. At Scoiattoli hut, which stands next to the Cinque Torri, you can book a romantic dinner and, subject to availability, a bath in the outdoor fir wood barrel bath: a romantic moment of relaxation in the warm water heated by a stove while sipping a glass of champagne, surrounded by a breathtaking view. So, what are you waiting for for an exciting dinner at altitude in the company of your soul mate
