Finally, in the Tarvisio area the ski school is open to everyone: the courses are available to parents as well in a 6-night stay that includes the use of the hotel’s wellness area (where available), a 6-day ski pass valid for Tarvisio and Sella Nevea and, for those who do not love downhill skiing, a wide range of activities to suit all requirements.

Not only skiing: snow activities for all tastes

Package holidays have been created to enjoy all the aspects of the various mountain resorts, allowing to have experiences other than skiing, such as snowshoe tours with a nature guide, Alpine ski classes at night, curling, climbing, ice climbing.

TurismoFVG, in collaboration with the mountain tourism consortia, has also set out a rich programme of activities for enjoying Friuli Venezia Giulia’s mountains at all times of the day: from themed and panoramic day snowshoe tours in the most spectacular and charming places to evening walks to discover the colours of twilight, to walks in the quiet of the night with a toboggan downhill ride after a dinner in the Alpine hut. This year there will also be proposals linked to the World War One itineraries and hang gliding and paragliding. Most of the activities cost from 5 to 12 Euros but are free for FVG Card holders; the FVG Card is the regional tourist card that at a low price provides its holder and a child up to 12 years old with free access to the main museums, monuments and attractions of the region as well as significant discounts at over 200 partner facilities.
