To make your holiday in the Dolomites unique and unforgettable, the Cesa del Louf chalet offers its guests various on-site and off-site experiences to satisfy every need and taste. All the activities proposed are customisable and guests can choose from different themes: wellness, sport, gourmet, family and music.
For gourmets and wine lovers: culinary tours with Chef Anthony; private tour of the vineyards of the Lieselehof winery with the owner himself (the tour includes guided tasting of the winery's best wines and a visit to the Wine Museum) and visit plus tasting of local cheeses and craft beers at a former World War I bunker turned cheese refinery. The most exclusive culinary experience to try at least once includes a visit to an Alta Badia wine cellar with around 26,000 fine wines, a tasting room, a Speck cellar, a bistro-gourmet and a chocolate room with no less than 140 types of chocolate from all over the world!
For families with children, a must-do activity is llama and alpaca trekking. You will visit Italy's largest lama farm on the Ritten high plateau, from where you can enjoy an extraordinary view of the Dolomites. These friendly alpacas and llamas will accompany you to the earth pyramids of Renon, the highest in Europe. Another attractive offer is a visit to the farms, where you will learn how to milk a cow and how to process it into butter or cheese!
If you love views from above and want to experience an exclusive service, helicopter flights from the chalet are perfect for you. Elidolomiti will let you experience indescribable emotions with its panoramic flights over breathtaking views to conquer the most beautiful mountains in the world, such as the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, Marmolada and Sassolungo.
If you are a sporty person, let yourself be won over by guided hikes or e-bike tours to Dobbiaco, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Lake Misurina and the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. There are also guided e-bike tours on the Wine Road near Bolzano with wine tastings; walking or e-bike tours in Alta Badia with lunch at mountain huts with panoramic views of the Dolomites and guided hikes in Val Gardena either at dawn with breakfast or during the day with lunch at 2,500 metres above sea level. Adrenaline is also guaranteed on the vie ferrate with a mountain guide who will explain the climbing techniques to you. There are also horseback rides with an aperitif on one of Europe's largest high plateaus, the Alpe di Siusi.
If your passion is music, pianist Michele Bargigia will involve you in music therapy with personalised compositions in which you will be asked to associate a colour, an image or a symbol. Starting from this track, and using synesthesia and emotional resonance, these symbols and moods are translated into a composition that represents the participants.
