Spa and winter activities

Snow and sunshine: a revitalizing winter south of the Alps

A snowshoe hike through the larch forests, a bombardino sipped in the sun, a warm thermal bath surrounded by the snowy landscape. That’s the kind of winter we like! 

Even if you don’t like skiing, we recommend the most interesting winter activities. Snowshoeing, dog sledding, fat biking, ice skating… sport and fun without limits.
