Dreaming of your summer holidays? Would you like to escape from your daily routine and immerse yourself in nature? Do you love the mountains and are you constantly looking for new adventures and breathtaking views? The Dolomites are the right place for you! If you haven't yet thought about where to go and what to do in August, Trentino offers many opportunities for everyone and an unforgettable holiday. Here are some suggestions:
Val di Non
Famous throughout Europe for its apple, the Val di Non is also known as the Valley of the Canyons: once upon a time these wonderful gorges were inaccessible, but recently they have been rediscovered, valorized, and made accessible thanks to the suggestive paths between the forests and the farming villages.
Spending a holiday here is synonymous with nature, relaxation, and sport. Quiet walks or relaxing bike rides along the Alta Val di Non paths will brighten your day. If you don't have a bike with you, you can rent one for free at Pineta Hotels. If your passion is golf, go to Sarnonico, where the Dolomiti Golf Club is located a stone's throw from the Alpen Garten Hotel Margherita. Not just sport, but also culture. Perhaps not everyone knows this, but in Val di Non there are two very well-established historical gems: the ancient Sanctuary of San Romedio and the majestic Thun Castle. During the period of mid-August you can visit the hermitage accompanied by a guide and participate in meditative-spiritual evenings.
Val di Sole
Capital of the Val di Sole, Malè is the ideal place for an active holiday in nature. Inserted between the Stelvio and Adamello-Brenta parks, it is an excellent starting point for excursions on foot or by mountain bike in the national parks or in Val di Rabbi. Not far away is the River Noce, where you can go rafting, kayaking, or canoeing. An alternative way to discover the beauties of this valley is to cycle along the Val di Sole cycle path that passes through the main towns, including Malè.
If you prefer art and culture, the area is full of castles and museums, in particular two gems that deserve to be visited: the Castle of Caldes and that of San Michele in Ossana. The entrance to both manors is free with a Trentino Guest Card, which the Liberty Hotel Malè subscribes to; an elegant 3-star superior hotel in Art Nouveau style where you can relax and savor the sublime specialties of Trentino.
Val di Fassa
Pozza di Fassa is the ideal location for those who love high-altitude excursions and want to test themselves by tackling multi-day routes that require good physical endurance and mountain experience. An international itinerary highly appreciated by hikers which crosses eight Alpine European countries, from Trieste to Monaco, is the Via Alpina: there are four stages in Trentino, specifically Val di Fassa. For those who wish to engage in less demanding treks, we recommend trekking on the Sella or the excursion on the Torri del Vajolet. Hikers will find everything they need at the Sport Hotel Majarè for their sporting holiday in Val di Fassa: from hiking maps to healthy cuisine and moments of rejuvenation in the wellness center.
