Where to go in the Summer Mountains? useful tips

There are so many mountain areas that often the choice of destination creates some problems, one of the most frequently asked questions among tourists is Where to go to the mountains?

A wrong choice can ruin a holiday with misunderstandings and unfulfilled hopes, which is why we have decided to suggest some useful advice in order to better evaluate the mountain resorts:


How much does it cost to go on vacation? The most frequently heard answer is "It depends where you go". Even in the mountains the price differences between one area and another are notable, a holiday in Austria does not have the cost of a holiday in Friuli...
However, if the location we are interested in is not suitable for our wallet, they can be found intermediate solutions able to offer almost the same tourist experience.
Sometimes it is enough to move a few kilometers to save a lot.
An example? instead of staying in the renowned Cortina you can book in a hotel in San Vito di Cadore which is just 10 minutes drive from the pearl of the Dolomites, this way you save on the hotel and can still spend the day in your favorite location.


The mountains in summer are certainly more “versatile” than in winter but not all locations are able to offer the same sporting offer. For example, if we are mountain bike enthusiasts and we like "adventurous excursions”Then a wilder area is certainly more interesting than a city-style valley.
Or if we want to try the experience of a descent in Rafting the ideal Region is the Valle d'Aosta or particular areas of Trentino such as Val di Sole.
Same speech for the Downhill, not all ski resorts provide facilities for those who want to climb to the top and practice this discipline.

Vacation with children

Those who go on vacation with the family and perhaps with small children have completely different needs from the crowd. Diaper changes, meals at all hours of the day and tranquility are just some of the needs of a family with small children.
Even if the children are older and more independent, they can have different needs, such as the conformity of the territory (not too steep), the availability of easy paths and the presence of playgrounds / adventure parks where they can spend time during the day.
Greater attention is paid to these requests especially by some localities of the Trentino Alto Adige, but also in other regions there are tourist destinations attentive to the needs of children especially where there are hotel facilities such as "KinderHotel”Where families can count on special services designed for the needs of families.

Distance and time of stay

How far is the location that interests us?
The distance of the location from where you live is closely linked to how many days of vacation you want / can do, for example if you want to plan a short stay of 2/3 days, perhaps it is preferable to stay in an area as far away as possible, while if the holiday program is 5 or 7 days so distance is no longer a problem.
This observation is important because otherwise you risk spending more on transport than for the complete holiday, moreover some structures (especially in high season) ask to vacate the rooms from the early morning "forcing" travelers to an early departure that certainly does not have. a big impact after a whole week of vacation but can ruin a short weekend in the mountains.

Type of holiday, Active or Relax?

The progress of tourism has led to the creation of different types of holidays designed according to the needs and wishes of the guests who visit the mountain. So the tourist boards propose wellness holidays, active holidays, slow holidays etc
Also here the choice of the location is fundamental. For example, if you are looking for a lively destination with clubs and streets in the center animated until late at night, you certainly cannot opt ​​for a small mountain village.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for complete relaxation, then traditional villages disconnected from mass tourism are certainly the ideal destination.
Usually the renowned locations offer a more intense holiday with events, manifestations and active life from morning to evening, while other smaller areas offer perhaps less entertainment but are ideal for those who want to live in direct contact with nature and totally escape from the daily rhythm. .

These are just a few simple tips that allow you to filter and improve your search for our ideal location for a mountain holiday, and how do you choose where to go to the mountains in summer?
