Choose the Val di Fassa for your next holiday in the mountains, for an unforgettable experience, excursions, and fun with all the family!

The mountains aren’t just about snow and skiing! During the summer, the Val di Fassa is an enchanting place, with vast green expanses, the scent of summer flowers and pine forests, dazzling blue skies and clean air. This whole area is strongly associated with peace, wellbeing and places to explore. Leave the stress of everyday life behind and enjoy the beauty of the mountains.

Enjoy experiences with your family, immersed in the green of the hills, in gentle temperatures, whilst still basking in sunshine. So what’s available in the mountains during the summer? We’ve thought of everything – you just need to choose your favourite activities and enjoy time with your family.

Cycling excursions Adventures on two wheels

The Fiemme and Fassa cycle path is a magical track between Canazei and Moline di Fiemme, a marvellous route that crosses two of Trentino’s most beautiful valleys in the heart of the Dolomites, and ideal for an enjoyable family bike ride. The itinerary is suitable for children: 48km on gently sloping or descending terrain, so you can ride safely and without worrying. The small bridges that cross the River Avisio and the dramatic noise of the waterfalls have a fairytale-like quality. You’ll enjoy superb views of Sassolungo, the Monzoni range, the Catinaccio group and the Lagorai, and can treat yourselves to a well-earned break on the shores of Lago di Soraga.
And if you start to feel weary?
With the Bike Express service, getting home is easy! You can take advantage of the convenient shuttle service, with a trailer for your bikes, which will take you back to your departure point. There are 15 stops along the way, so you can jump on or off according to your starting or finishing point. At the Family Hotel Gran Baita, everything is organised to guarantee you are safe at all times.
For your cycling holidays in Trentino-Alto Adige, you can choose to bring your own bikes or to hire high-quality bikes from just 300m from our Family Hotel.
And if your children are still too small to ride their own bikes? No problem. You’ll find everything you need, including seats, trailers and electric models.

Museum of the Great War

Paths through the trenches: these open-air museums have trails that cross the former trenches of the Great War. Against the magnificent backdrop of a grand-scale landscape, they are also hugely evocative on account of the people who lost their lives fighting on the mountain peaks. They vary in difficulty, from simple trails to more challenging routes where you will need a guide.


Monzoni Mineralogical Museum

A fantastic private collection of minerals gathered in the Dolomites, and an experience to be shared with children. Val di Fassa is known throughout the world for the richness and variety of its minerals. In fact, the mineral Fassaite owes its name to this valley.


Cultural museum of Ladin customs and traditions

In Ladin, the Val di Fassa is known as Val de Fascia. This is one of the Ladin valleys with their own language and identity, with collections exhibited here that illustrate this. Housing artefacts that reveal local traditions, and agricultural and craft activities that are typical of the Ladin culture, the museum is in the hamlet of San Giovanni di Fassa.


The museum of the Ötzi mummy in Bolzano

Referred to variously as Similaun Man, the Similaun Mummy or Iceman: for us, he will always be Ötzi. Visit the museum in Bolzano to see the Similaun Man mummy and discover his story, from its discovery to the causes of death and a host of curiosities and mysteries that surround our ancestor.


MuSe: the Museum of Natural Sciences in Trento

You can’t miss MuSe, Trentino’s natural science museum designed by world-famous architect Renzo Piano. Visit both permanent and temporary exhibitions, explore the history of animals, plants and men of the Alps, and immerse yourself in a tropical greenhouse.
