Holiday information

 

A winter holiday in Moso, Dolomites,

for skiers and non-skiers
Silent and spectacular, Italy’s northernmost corner is ruled over by the magnificent Dolomites, their pale, jagged peaks rising over 3,000 metres into the sky. In the valleys below, traditional South Tyrolean villages and dense pine forests nestle peacefully, enveloped in a thick blanket of snow.

It is here, set on a sunny plateau at the entrance to the Val Fiscalina, that you will find Moso. 
Offering easy access to the nearby ‘Three Peaks’ Nature Park, and to the region’s many designated winter walking paths and cross-country skiing trails, this small village makes a great base for exploring some of Italy’s most dramatic landscapes.
 

Our expert says

“If you're looking for somewhere extra special scenery-wise, the Dolomites is the place to go. Dramatic views aren't the only reason for coming here, however. The hospitality is first-rate, and the winter walking and cross-country skiing, excellent.”

Winter activities

There’s no fixed itinerary, so take your pick of the activities as the mood takes you. The cross-country skiing is great but, equally, Moso makes a good base for non-skiing holidays too.
  • Best for: beginners, improvers, intermediates & advanced
    With its picturesque valleys and striking mountain backdrop, the Three Peaks region offers some of the most scenic cross-country skiing anywhere in the Alps. An impressive 200 kilometres of prepared trails criss-cross the area, with 30 kilometres accessible from Moso itself. The gentle routes that depart directly from the hotel door and pass through tree-lined valleys to reach inviting lunch stops are perfect for beginners, while there are plenty of trails to challenge the more accomplished skier, too. One of the loveliest routes begins in the neighbouring village of Dobbiaco – Italy’s premier cross-country skiing destination – easily accessed using the excellent local transport system (free with your included guestcard).

    Lessons are available for skiers of all abilities, and are coordinated by the Sextner Dolomiten ski school in nearby Sesto.

    Trails: 200km to 2000m in Drei Zinnen region with 30km around Moso

  • Good choice of routes
    The opportunities for winter walking are wonderful, with specially prepared paths leading up and down the valley. In total, there are 100 kilometres of prepared paths in the region. We provide suggestions as to the most rewarding walks, but do not supply detailed route notes – the designated winter walking routes are well signposted. One especially scenic option is to take a cable car up to 2,092 metres, from where you get a rewarding view of the Three Peaks which give the region its name. From the top of the cable car, a pretty route leads towards the peaceful Klammbachalm hut where you can enjoy a well-earned drink on the sunny terrace. Alternatively the Innerfeldtal, a side valley midway between Moso and the end of its valley, offers the chance to walk up to the Drei Schuster hut, from where you can come back down by toboggan! 
  • Best for: beginners, improvers & intermediates
    The beginner-friendly Rotwand slopes are just a short walk from the hotel, with more challenging domains a bus ride away. 

    Pistes: 100km to 2433m in Drei Zinnen region (comprises 66 pistes: blue 24, red 33, black 9, served by 32 gondola & draglifts), all accessed by free ski bus.
  • Snowshoeing & more
    If you fancy trying something a little different, tobogganing, ice-skating and curling are also available, as is snowshoeing – a fantastic way of exploring the unspoiled wintry landscapes. Less energetic options include a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a visit to the Alps’ only reindeer herd.

  • Special events
    There are traditional celebrations on Christmas Eve, as well as a special festive dinner. On 30 December, the village hosts a spectacular ‘silent’ fireworks display, while the hotel’s New Year’s Eve celebrations feature live music, a special buffet and after-dinner festivities.
 

Where you stay

The peaceful village of Moso (altitude: 1310m) is superbly positioned in the Three Peaks region. There is a small collection of shops in the village itself, with further amenities available in larger Sesto, located just 2 kilometres along the valley and reached by a short walk or an even shorter bus ride.

Please note: most beds in Tyrolean hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin-bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >

 

FAQs

  • If you are travelling over Christmas or New Year, or during school holidays, you should definitely pre-book lessons. After you’ve booked your holiday with us, we’ll send you a link to a list of packages that we can arrange for you in advance.
    Sometimes we can’t make bookings on your behalf. In these cases you should phone or email the ski school well before your holiday to arrange a date and time; do not wait until you are on holiday to make arrangements. 
  • Living far from the capital ourselves, we know better than most that flying from London can be a bind, so we are very flexible with our travel arrangements. Call or email us, and one of the team will be happy to list the different options available to you, and any price implications.
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact Abi to discuss your plans.
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.
  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to buy our policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK and EU residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Italy, but not a visa (if you are travelling after 31 October 2019, see the Brexit question below for more information). If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice can be found through the following NHS link: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/advice/ You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). UK citizens should also obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) by applying at a Post Office or at www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC allows reciprocal health care but should not be seen as a substitute for travel insurance. EHICs may cease to be valid in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
  • The principal official language is Italian, though some regions have a second official language, such as South Tyrol, where German is widely spoken. The currency is the Euro. Italian time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • Even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, it’s been confirmed that flights will continue as normal and that you won’t need a visa to go on holiday (the limit on stays is 90 days). What you will need if there’s no deal is a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your arrival (extra months added because you renewed your passport early do not count) and adequate travel insurance to cover you for accidents and illness in case reciprocal health deals are suspended. If you are driving while on holiday, you will probably need an International Driving Permit (plus a Green Card if you are taking your own car to Europe). More information >
  • The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
    If you live outside the UK, see our essential travel information page for a list of relevant websites.
