Centre yourself with the power of nature. As the countryside awakens in spring, the urge to get out into the open air gets ever stronger and draws us out into the great outdoors and the spring air. Numerous guided events and workshops around the topic's health, balance and relax will ensure you have all the basics you need off to a good start for the warm season.

The events will be held every week in the villages of Castelrotto, Siusi, Fiè allo Sciliar, Tires al Catinaccio and on the Seiser Alm, and are suitable for both adults and teenagers. For all events, participants must pre-book at a tourist office in the Seiser Alm holiday region.

We can relax to our very depths, and take a step close towards a life of vitality with a new spring in our steps.
