The perfect active summer getaway, COMO Alpina Dolomites allows its guests to explore all the Alpe di Siusi has to offer, from breath-taking hiking trails, horseback rides to high-adrenaline mountain biking and zip-line activities plus a magnificent 18-hole golf course. To launch its first summer season, COMO have carefully curated a series of experiences to explore this luscious, rugged mountain range further, enabling guests to connect with nature and enjoy local activities like the traditional hay bath ritual – a traditional South Tyrolean treatment that originates from local farmers, where guests will be wrapped in hot hay, to ease muscles after a long day on the mountains, accompanied by a 30-minute facial using local products.

Also on the COMO agenda: An Alpine Wine and Local Produce Experience, giving guests the opportunity to join a COMO Alpina Dolomites Sommelier for an exquisite tasting experience, with a selection of local wines, speck, and cheeses thoughtfully paired and presented with expert insights into the region’s culinary traditions. The Alpine Meadow Cycling Adventure, where guests can enjoy the stunning alpine landscape with a guided e-bike tour to Pflegerhof, an organic herbalist farm where they will explore lush meadows and aromatic herb gardens, accompanied by a chef-prepared picnic lakeside lunch. The Catch and Dine experience includes embarking on a guided morning e-bike adventure tour to a tranquil lake to enjoy some time to fish. Upon returning to the hotel, COMO’s chef will prepare a delicious lunch using the catch.
