Cortina d’Ampezzo: Where Luxury & Adrenaline Go Hand in Hand

If you would like to go skiing in one of the most luxurious and attractive resorts in Italy (and Europe), you can’t do much better than Cortina d’Ampezzo.

 

Often referred to simply as Cortina, this resort has been attracting a mix of regular skiers and high-society for decades.

 

You’ll find luxurious accommodation and fine dining in abundance – but you’ll also find some great skiing as well as a few other adrenaline-pumping activities, making it ideal for our customers.

 

Here’s what you need to do if you’re planning activity holidays in Italy this winter.

 

Quick Overview of Cortina

 

Cortina is one of the most well-known resorts in Europe. It hosted the Winter Olympics back in 1956, and since then it has developed a reputation for being the most fashionable ski resort in Italy.

 

Part of this is due to the shopping, the fine dining and the stylish and comfortable accommodation options, which mean you’ll certainly find lots of fun ways to spend your time off the slopes.

 

Walk down Corso Italia, a traffic-free street in the heart of the town, and you will pass by many designer shops that are popular with holidaymakers.

 

It tends to attract a jet-set crowd, and it is also a popular resort for those looking for culture and music. Ernest Hemingway even used to vacation here many years ago.

 

Plenty of Space to Ski

 

Many of the people who holiday in Cortina don’t even go skiing, and those that do are always happy to spend a good amount of their time off the slopes.

 

What that means is low crowds for you, with very little to no queueing. For those travellers who want to spend as much time on the slopes as they can on their Italy activity holidays, that’s a very good thing.

 

It is one of the 12 resorts in the Dolomiti Superski area, and the resort itself has 71 miles of pistes and over 30 ski lifts. It also has a number of ski schools and good snow coverage. The skiing here is suitable for all levels, including children and beginners.

 

The setting is also spectacular. The resort is surrounded by limestone cliffs, and the beautiful scenery helps to make the experience even more special.

Other Activities in Cortina

 

While skiing and shopping may be the main activities, we also offer some more extreme sports for those who want to combine their luxury holiday with some adrenaline-pumping action.

 

One of the most popular activities we provide here is heli-skiing. This is the ultimate skiing experience. You head up to the top of the mountain in a helicopter and then launch yourself onto the slopes, enjoying fresh, undisturbed snow and perfect skiing conditions.

 

We also provide other extreme winter sports here for those who want to experience the best of luxury and thrill-seeking.

 

Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds

 

Cortina d’Ampezzo really is the place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Get a luxurious break filled with fine dining and luxury accommodation, as well as action-packed fun during the day – and all surrounded by spectacular scenery.
