Rocks, woods, mountain tops and valleys make this place special and unparalleled, allowing you to observe and understand geology in a unique context of great environmental value. We can provide our guests with free tours with a geologist – the perfect opportunity to observe and understand the geological environment, dating back from 270 millions of years to today.
Summer activities at the Park Hotel Sancelso, Bellamonte, Dolomites
RELAX AND WELLBEING IN THE DOLOMITES
A moment of total relax set in the amazing natural landscape of the Dolomites: from our hotel, you can admire a spectacular scenery, with a stunning view over the Pale di San Martino mountain. Make use of our panoramic terrace, sip your drink and enjoy the lights of the sunset, or relax in our wellbeing area, with Finnish sauna, steam room and Scottish shower.

- Geotrail Valles-Venegia – guided tour with a geologist. A ring trail that will lead you to know the ancient Permian and Triassic rocks, dating back 250/280 millions of years ago – witnesses of one of the biggest extinctions of our planet.
PIC NIC, OUTDOOR LUNCHES AND GRILLS
Not only fantastic landscapes, lots of activities and relaxation as you like, but also an appetizing barbecue with friends: the wonderful Val di Fiemme offers this and more!
Feel free to contact us for information on how to organize a pleasant outdoor lunch with family or friends. Some easy excursions near our hotel offer this possibility: at the Carigole and Pian dei Casoni huts, for example, there are in fact some equipped areas where you can have lunch, perhaps accompanying everything with a pleasant Trentino wine. It’s hard to resist!
VISIT THE GEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF THE DOLOMITES
We also recommend you to visit the geological museum of the Dolomites in Predazzo (free entry with the Fiemme Card): a museum with a long tradition, opened to the public in 1899, that tells the story of the Dolomites – 200 millions of years of history, from its creation to becoming a Unesco World Heritage Site- providing a modern and elegant approach. Predazzo has always been a very important place for the geology of the Dolomites: the knowledge of the Monti Pallidi (that is, the Dolomites) began right here; and it was here where the first “International Congress of Geology” took place in 1903. Counting over 12.000 findings, among fossils, rocks and beautiful minerals, this collection in Predazzo is considered to be one of the richest preserved in Italy.
WALK IN THE WOODS WITH PONIES
At the Park Hotel Sancelso, you’ll meet Lulu and Joy, two ponies who are very good and loved by children, and the friendly Linda, a Haflinger with a great character and confidence. Observing them, we’ll talk about ethology, their and our well-being, and the wonderful relationship that can be established with horses. We will conclude this experience with a short walk with the horse by hand in the woods, in absolute relaxation, surrounded by a fairy-tale landscape and enveloped by the scent of the silent forest. The program is free and open only to our guests.
If you prefer horseback riding, we recommend the Maneggio dei Masi in Cavalese or the Ranch El Zerilo in Stava, Tesero, a short distance from the Park Hotel Sancelso. Feel free to contact us for any information or direct contact!
A YURT… MAGIC FROM MONGOLIA!
A beautiful and original Yurt is available for our guests in the park of the Hotel in summer. In this round and muffled setting, you can feel the magical atmosphere of nomad cultures and suddenly be carried to a different dimension: could it be for its decorations, natural materials or its scent, it is definitely a special place to relax, read a book, listen to music, sip a spiced tea – maybe prepared in the silence of a wooden fire. Such an authentic and unusual experience!
