Arabba

Set right in the centre of the stunning Dolomites mountains in Italy, Arabba provides some of the best skiing and accommodation in all of Europe. It's an incredibly picturesque place with easy access to 1220km of glorious pistes.

 

It's ideal for both intermediate and advanced levels of skiers and boarders due to the sheer number of pistes (well over 600) you'll have access to. No chance of getting bored here!

For low key nightlife with traditional Italian hospitality, Arabba is the place for you. If you like your food and wine, you'll find a handful of Michelin-starred restaurants and extensive wine cantinas in the area to keep you happy. 

 

Most of the nightlife and après-ski in Arabba is based in the hotels. Most have laid-back bars and spas which include hot tubs, pools, saunas for some well-earned 'me time'. It’s a very relaxed place to spend your downtime when you're not on the mountain.

On the mountain

Access to the 1220km of fabulous, varied terrain is easy from Arabba. Intermediates should try the 26km Sellaronda loop which winds its way around the Marmolada glacier, or our Dolomites Ski Safari for a holiday with a difference. Neilson 'ski away days' take in the 'Hidden Valley' and Cortina; both are definitely worth considering. 

 

Beginners aren't left out either. The runs around the resort are well suited to building confidence as they're wide, open and gently sloping.

Off the mountain

If you’re looking to try something new in the afternoons or evenings, try snow shoeing for a different view of this beautiful area. Or why not check out the outdoor ice skating rink and do your best winter Olympics impression with a few spins and pirouettes. 

 

Arabba is a very relaxing place for non skiers. There is little to do here but enjoy the sunshine and the great coffee, ideal if you want to just slow down. One or two bars are open late but Arabba essentially is somewhere to chill out.
