The pristine nature around the Hideaway FORESTIS exudes a unique tranquillity. The bracing air at an altitude of 1,800 m and the beauty of the landscape of the Puez-Geisler Nature Park are perfect for sports activities pursued independently or with a guide.
The FORESTIS is located at 1,800 metres above sea level in the South Tyrolean Dolomites and has a direct connection to the Plose ski region. A quiet forest path leads directly from the FORESTIS ski room to the slopes and to the valley station of the chairlift, which takes you to the mountain station on the Plose. From there, you reach Plose's 45 kilometres of ski slopes via numerous modern char lifts, ranging from easy to intermediate level. The Plose ski resort has the longest valley run in South Tyrol. You will find cosy mountain huts offering local cuisine, hot drinks and great views of the surrounding mountains along the slopes. A trail from the slope takes you through the woods, directly back to the door of the FORESTIS ski room. Other options for skiing near FORESTIS include Sellaronda, Seiseralm and Kronplatz, each of which are about 60 minutes away by car.
The densely forested environment of the FORESTIS offers the perfect conditions for meditative or quiet winter sports and walks through the snow. Snowshoeing offers you a deeper connection to nature and to you own body. FORESTIS hiking guide Herbert leads excursions over frozen brooks, past snow-covered woodland and untouched snow fields, directly through the UNESCO natural heritage in South Tyrol. You can borrow snowshoes, poles and backpacks at FORESTIS, free of charge.
South Tyrol offers countless opportunities for pleasure skiing off the beaten track. One great tour runs directly from FORESTIS to the Gabler. The climb leads through dense forests to one of the most beautiful vantage points in the area. The trail then enters a vast, open space, which makes the descent south past the Schatzerhütte down to the ski hut into a spectacular experience. From there, you can take the gondola lift directly to the ski slope, which leads back to FORESTIS.
The landscapes of the Dolomites region are full of charming views, no matter the season. In the spring, you can watch nature come to life and the colours bloom while the mountains remain covered in snow. In the summer, the hillsides are green and the scents of grass, mountain herbs and tree resin fill the air. The bright, warm colours of autumn welcome the first snow, which fills the woods with deep silence. FORESTIS offers guided hikes to the most beautiful destinations in the area and beyond throughout the year. Hiking guide Herbert leads a variety of tours, from easy to be challenging, and shares exciting and interesting facts about the environment and local traditions. Our sunrise hikes are particularly impressive and available in the summer and winter alike.
Wyda is the movement theory of the Celtic Druids, which aims to unite humankind and nature and help people achieve harmony and contentment through mindfulness. Born in our latitudes, this philosophy is like Qi Gong and Yoga in terms of the exercises. Given the powerful natural surroundings at FORESTIS, the setting is ideal for Wyda energy work. For this reason, it is a central component of the exercise and holistic regeneration programs.
There are four bike lines on Mount Plose. They run mainly through dense forest, making the sport into an intense natural experience. The flowing trails, which are suitable for almost anyone, lead up to Palmschoß. You reach the chair lift from FORESTIS via a short walk through the woods, and bike rentals are available at the mountain station. One highlight for bike fans is the annual Mountainbike Testival in Brixen in September. Visitors can learn about the latest trends and talk about the best gear and trails.
