The large size (7,650 m²), the 13 indoor pools, as well as saunas, SPA and fitness areas, have then made possible the continuation of its charm until today.

  • Towards the Earth Pyramids of Renon

    • Did you know that there are pyramids in the high plateaus of South Tyrol? They are the earth pyramids of Renon, created by melting glaciers during the Ice Age and composed of moraine clay: a miracle of nature that is about 25,000 years old. They are tall columns of solidified debris, each with a large stone on top, which serves to protect them from natural erosion due to rain and to allow them to grow higher and higher during rainfall. If the stone were to fall, the entire column would collapse but, as happens every time, a new one would be created after a short while. Hotel Tyrol, in collaboration with the best local guides, organizes this experience to discover one of the most fascinating natural monuments in the world. We start from Collalbo following a very flat path, so much so that it is easily passable even with a stroller, which will take you to the discovery of the most beautiful and highest earth pyramids in Europe.

White magic

Blankets of pure white, forests cocooned in snow, and the Dolomites with a silver hue. Our windows overlook a white landscape that goes on forever. With its fir trees and silence, ice crystals and immaculate tiny villages, in the winter Val Gardena offers the unique thrill of skiing in an untainted environment, and the chance to spot a stoat or a snowdrop.

Selva Val Gardena

Selva Val Gardena is located at the foot of the Sella and Langkofel Group and at the very edge of the Puez - Odle Natural park: a jewel of the Dolomites. This mountain town is one of the privileged destinations for those who love hiking, mountain biking, and winter sports. During the summer, the “Hero” MTB-Marathon Cup is held, a difficult and attractive agonistic MTB race, and the FIS Ski World Cup in the winter. Characterized by the typical Tyrolean houses, the country still transmits a culture that is strongly connected to the territory and to the Ladin traditions. Selva is not only to be visited, but above all to be experienced in its nature and in the pleasant world of shopping.

The Dolomites

The Dolomites are unique mountains. Also called the “Pale Mountains” for the light colour of their rocks, they are not only an incomparable landscape but also impact and mould the character of the inhabitants of its valleys. All aspects of life, from the climate to social organization, are somehow linked to the Dolomites.

The history of their formation is as fantastic as their appearance. During the Second Alpine Orogeny, the endogenous forces exposed ancient sediments and then created the conditions for the growth of the coral reefs that make up our mountains.

Today the Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and are located geographically and almost entirely in the territory known as “Ladinia” or the valleys where the Ladin language is spoken. In Ladin a uniquely Dolomite phenomenon is described: Alpenglow (in Ladin from Val Gardena “nrosadura”). This is a bright pink colour in all of the shades of red, from pale pink to intense purple. This phenomenon can be observed at dawn and dusk and is an unforgettable memory for those who have seen it.
