Activities and relaxation on Dolomites walking holidays
Experience one of the best dolomites walking holidays in South Tyrol at our rustic mountain house, Chalet Grumer on the mountain next to Bolzano, the Renon. This is the ideal starting point to explore the countryside, getting to know the wonderful valleys and peaks and you can also relax in our Dolomites nature hotel. If you love walking holidays, you can come here for activities in the mountains or simply relax in the spa. Whatever you choose, Chalet Grumer is the perfect place to combine leisure with getting out and about in the mountains.
Total relaxation at Chalet Grumer Wellness & Spa Resort
Your personal sense of well-being is our top priority at Chalet Grumer and you can use the time to relax and feel good during your stay in our peaceful setting. Being out in the healthy and fresh mountain air is a great way to enjoy your holiday hiking in Italy and you can also take time out after your mountain activities. This is exactly what our cosy spa and wellness area offers.
Float in the indoor pool or let the water jets massage you on one of the underwater massage beds. Guests can also enjoy the Alpine bio sauna, classic Finnish sauna and stimulating steam room. Then take a refreshing drink from the ice-cold mountain water bubbling from our Dolomite fountain.
You’ll also feel the positive effect from the scent of pine wood, the warm indirect light and the comfortable relaxation room where you can let your thoughts run free. Anyone who wants to be even more sporty on their walking holidays in Italy can visit our gym, which has Technogym sports equipment for you to use at any time. The adjoining Vital bar offers freshly-squeezed juices, soothing teas, healthy snacks and fresh fruit for you to enjoy. We also have suites with private hot tubs where you can enjoy an exclusive wellness experience. At one with nature, let the bubbles and waterjets spoil you under the stars with a fabulous panoramic view of the Dolomites.
We also have special treatments available on request, such as individual and couple massages and extensive beauty treatments, including scrubs and face masks. You can even book a personal trainer or reserve a place to attend yoga classes and meditation sessions. If you have any special requests or ideas, please contact us directly by telephone. Alternatively, you can e-mail us or use the enquiry form to send us your suggestions.
Healthy food with panoramic views
In the evening you can sit and enjoy the wonderful view of the mountains while we offer you the best culinary delights in our partner restaurant Pippo's Mountain Lodge (5 minutes drive). Our creative chef will be delighted to conjure up a three-course gourmet menu and you can also dine à la carte and taste his surprising and excellent dishes.
Whether you order typical Alpine specialties, Mediterranean cuisine or exotic dishes, you’re in for an unforgettable treat. Not only will you love the presentation, but you’ll simply adore the taste sensation. If you’d like food for energy, as part of our services for dolomites walking holidays, upon request, we can prepare a picnic basket or a hiking backpack with a nourishing meal for your outdoor activities.
Getting out into the great outdoors in the region surrounding our chalet
Those who love nature and are looking for relaxation can easily discover the diversity of our local mountain, the Renon, on hiking holidays in Italy. The many hiking routes and activities on the Renon are ideal for walking. In addition to the historic paths like the Ritter-Runde (knight tour), the Römerweg (path of the Romans), or the promenade of the psychoanalyst Freud, there are many other cultural experiences in South Tyrol to enjoy.
The Renon earth pyramids are very interesting to visit. Over the centuries, they’ve transformed into a truly natural spectacle through sandstone erosion. You can also explore the mountains by walking along the Keschtnweg. When looking for a particularly enjoyable walk, the different parts of this trail are spectacular. If the magnificent paths around the Ritten spark your interest, your private concierge and host, Philip, can help you to find more routes with panoramic views for unforgettable moments and some photo opportunities in the middle of the Dolomites.
Fans of architecture will enjoy walking through the dreamy mountain villages. Not only will you come across charming alpine huts, but you can also admire historical features in traditional South Tyrolean parlours, as well as historical frescoes and exciting architectural designs. When it comes to local traditions and history, you can actively explore the contemporary events on offer to gain a first-hand experience of the spirit of the South Tyrol. There are many events and traditional festivals where, for example, you can dance as a band plays or see the magnificent South Tyrol costumes on show. Also, every year, the South Tyrol Jazz Festival comes to the Renon with tuneful performances. Or, like many locals, you can simply walk alongside the South Tyrolean farmers on Bartlmä day when the cattle are ceremoniously driven down from the mountain pastures into the valley.
If you like sporting adventures to be somewhat more challenging, the Renon is also a great place for mountain biking, downhill riding, paragliding, climbing and many other sports. Enjoy the thrill of the fast-paced hockey matches at the Renon’s ice arena or follow the call of the mountains and ascend to the top of the Renon peak to enjoy the breath-taking 360° panoramic view over the Eisack valley and the Dolomites of Val d’Ega. Then, sip an evening aperitif in Chalet Grumer as you look out over the enchanting fiery red colours of the famous Catinaccio mountain group.
You can really look forward to the Dolomites walking holidays with us in South Tyrol.
