Trentino-Alto Adige

Trentino Alto Adige is located in the most Northern part of Italy bordering Austria and Slovenia. Being in the middle of the Alps, all ski resorts are within a one hour car driving distance.

The region offers a remarkable variety of landscapes going from the picturesque shores of Lake Garda and many other lakes to some of the most striking mountain peaks in Europe: the Dolomites of the Fassa Valley, the Gardena and Fiemme Valleys, the Brenta Group and the Pala Group.
