Wellness is at home here. Not only for the Dolomite environment that offers open-air gyms in the parks of Paneveggio, Pale di San Martino and Monte Corno, among expanses of fir trees as far as the eye can see. Or for the Cavalese sports halls where the athletes of the men’s and women’s national volleyball teams train. Or again for the headquarters of Starpool, a leading company in the design of wellness spaces.

It may be for all these reasons that the Val di Fiemme, in Trentino, will be transformed into a widespread gymnasium on the occasion of the World Wellness Weekend, a worldwide event that every third weekend of September promotes psychophysical well-being as a lifestyle.

This year the WWW will be held from 17 to 19 September in 120 countries and, for the first time in Italy, it will even involve an entire valley.

The three-day program
The pillars are those dictated by the WWW: rest and creativity, nutrition and immunity, movement and vitality, mindfulness and serenity, motivation and solidarity. But that is the scaffolding made in Fiemme that from sunrise to sunset will offer yoga sessions in the Dolomites, Kneipp paths in nature, walks in the woods and healthy dishes at zero km. The program? It begins Friday 17 with the Dolomites Well-being Summit, in which to listen to the greeting of the founder of the international event Jean Guy de Gabriac and meet personalities such as the mountaineer Simone Moro, the surgeon Vincenzo Primitivo, the starred chef Alessandro Gilmozzi. This will be followed by a walk to Capanna Cervino, above Passo Rolle, in time for sunset with the dance in the sun and a flowery aperitif.

For those who prefer the sunrise, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 at 5.45 am we go up to the Corno Bianco and admire theDolomite sunrise with the suggestion of the sound of a horn and the flavors of infusions and biscuits with alpine herbs. Also on the calendar Kneipp paths in the stream by Anterivo, workshops dedicated to the benefits of hay, meditations in the woods, walks in the violin forest of the Paneveggio – Pale di San Martino Natural Park, and night excursions to the Tesero Astronomical Observatory. Lovers of yoga and oriental disciplines will have a natural gym available at the Biolago di Predazzo with sessions of Fiemme Namastè Festival, while the curious can cheer on the athletes of Skiroll in the World Championship. Without forgetting the taste, with the dish of the World Wellness Weekend created to this by starred chef Alessandro Gilmozzi: Felicetti pasta with alpine butter, crunchy rye and Clary sage. A local delight to order in the participating restaurants including the suggestive Baita Tonda, a design refuge on Alpe Cermis, or the Ristorante La Stua, a historic address in the heart of Cavalese where you can admire sixteenth-century frescoes and traditional stube.

The Spa queen of wellness
And you can’t talk about well-being without taking a break in the Spa. She knows it well Rock Wellness Hotel of Cavalese, with the new one Wellness Spa Experience signed Starpool, which offers SPA SYSTEM paths in which to be guided with the right timing and sensory stimuli depending on the chosen mood: Purify, Excite or Relax. The Spa enjoys a splendid view of the Dolomites, including an infinity pool, panoramic sauna and pine-scented relaxation rooms where you are enveloped by the diffuse sound of the resonant spruce case, a true harmonic jewel.

On the menu there are sensory experiences that combine well-being and technology such as the Soffio and Nuvola beds, where it seems to float massaged by puffs of hot water between chromotherapy and skilled hands. Or even Zerobody, the system of dry floating where you are massaged by the jets in absence of gravity and without getting wet, while listening to guided meditations or relaxing music. This innovative bed is an excellent anti-fatigue treatment also chosen by the athletes of the national volleyball team who train here, as well as a treatment against insomnia. On the occasion of the WWW, La Roccia proposes a parallel program with detox aperitifs, chakra dinner and activities led by holistic counselors such as Heart Meditation, meditation of the heart to the rhythm of the breath or theAura-Soma Experience, an inner journey through colors.

Space for bikes
To complete the picture of psychophysical well-being will be Fiemme without a car, the initiative that on Sunday 19th will leave space for cyclists and walkers by closing the Strada Statale 48 of the Dolomites to traffic: 13 kilometers from Cavalese to Predazzo. A good opportunity to get on the saddle and enjoy clean air and the sounds of nature without worrying about cars. Itinerary that is added to the Cycle Path of the Dolomites, a 50 km strip that connects the Val di Fiemme to the Val di Fassa, from Molina di Fiemme to Canazei, suitable for all legs. For the more trained or for those who want to put assisted pedaling to the test, there are also dozens of km of trails that reach the Dolomite passes and the scenarios of the Paneveggio Natural Park.
